Description

People of Ikaria, as they live isolated without being able to use transportation facilities. They had to tame the earth and the surrounding sea in order to survive. Mountainous Ikaria with the almost nonexistent plains and the steep slopes had to feed her children. Thus the slopes became small terraces supported by dry walls, filled with fresh gtround earth and dung, planted with trees that bear fruit as well as with fresh vegetables and herbs. The inhabitants of the Island of Ikaria serve as a convincing example of the aforesaid notion since despite the fact that they do not possess any specialized knowledge nor do they place excessive effort. They live many more years (100) while mimimizing the possibility to suffer from cancer or any cardiovascular diseases.
