  Long Lives Well Lived

  Some Asians seem to have discovered the fountain of youth. So what does it

  take to reach 100?

  (TimeAsia) -- “Huang Maliang, who is 104 years old, keeps a coffin in her

  house. Her two-year-old great-great-grandson plays on it, and Huang herself

  uses it as a rest stop on her slow journeys from the open-pit fire in the

  back of her house to the front porch. Other family members -- seven Huangs,

  from five generations -- share the huge, mud-brick dwelling. They aren’t in

  the least troubled by the sight of the matriarch sitting atop the rough

  wooden box. And anyway, Huang says, lightly tapping the cover with her

  fingernails, ’this one isn’t for me. This is for my youngest son.’ The son

  in question, a lithe 78-year-old, bounds by in pursuit of a fleeing

  toddler...Is it something in the water? Why do some communities, located in

  disparate places and harboring very different cultures, seem to be built

  atop a fountain of youth? Scientific efforts to uncover the secrets behind

  these mysterious, mini Shangri-Las have varied enormously in scope, ranging

  from a sporadic, amateur attempt by a busy general practitioner in the

  Hunza Valley to a quarter-century study in Okinawa during which researchers

  carefully amassed and analyzed data on everything from eating habits to the

  preferred hobbies of the oldest of the old (they enjoy playing the Okinawan

  three-string sanshin and singing traditional folk songs). There are

  tantalizing consistencies in research findings, offering priceless clues to

  aspiring centenarians on what it takes to live a long and healthy life.“

  Report Suggests High PCB Levels in Farmed Salmon

  (The Washington Post) -- “A sharp rise in the consumption of farmed salmon

  may be posing a health threat to millions of Americans because of high

  levels of PCBs that have been found in limited samples of the popular fish,

  according to a study.“
