On 24 October 2012 The New York Times reported:
Ikaria, an island of 99 square miles and home to almost 10,000 Greek nationals, lies about 30 miles off the western coast of Turkey. Its jagged ridge of scrub-covered mountains rises steeply out of the Aegean Sea. Before the Christian era, the island was home to thick oak forests and productive vineyards. Its reputation as a health destination dates back 25 centuries, when Greeks travelled to the island to soak in the hot springs near Therma. The island's residents have extraordinary longevity. The people on Ikaria reach the age of 90 at two and a half times the rate Americans do. More than that, they were also living about 8 to 10 years longer before succumbing to cancers and cardiovascular disease, and they suffered less depression and about a quarter the rate of dementia. On Ikaria, people have been managing to stay sharp to the end. This article looks at why people live so long on Ikaria.
