at least 5 cultures with people who get to be 100 to 120 are known:
they are geographically and racially diverse ..
-russians of georgia
-folks from Azerbaijan
-folks from armenia
-the folk of axacra from the northen ural (lol, could not find anything about them)
also a little folk in eastern pakistan
a group in west tibet
also two groups in south america
what they have in comon:
these groups live in exil, for religious/political reasons.
they live in the montains neare the tree boundary
thin dry clean air, little rain
water from melting claciers
they have to water their fields manually with this glacier water
the water is also called milk, becaus it is so full of minerals or whatever the glacier has grinded.
our bodies are largely made out of "earth".
that is to say minerals does not mean "tiny things that floats around in the body".
for example bones are calcium and phosphor. minerals are essential building blocks of structure.
