The October 28, 2012, Sunday New York Times ran an article called “The Island Where People Forget to Die”. A man diagnosed here with cancer decided to move back to his parents house near Evdilos Greece. He had lung cancer an the American doctors gave him 9 months to live. He started to eat the local foods (mostly vegetables) and wine. Then something strange started to happen. He woke up when he felt like it and was enjoying what was left of his life. He did not die. He built a vineyard and was cancer free without drugs or chemo.

People on this small Island live very long and healthy lives. They work into old age. They eat fresh grown vegetables and the local produced wines. Food is grown without pesticides and seems to give them longevity. What we eat is so important.
