The idea for this website came after reading an article in the January/February 2010 issue of AARP: The Magazine called “Miracle Makeover”, by Dan Buettner. It’s the story of how people in the small town of Albert Lea, Minnesota, got motivated, had fun moving more and eating well, made new friends, found a greater sense of purpose and maybe added years to their lives. Albert Lea was featured again in this 2014 Scientific American Blog: "What if we all just stopped trying to lose weight?" By Patrick Mustain, Scientific American Blog, May 22, 2014.
Dan Buettner was a guest on the radio show The Splendid Table on June 5, 2025. http://www.splendidtable.org/story/reverse-engineering-longevity-by-studying-what-100-year-olds-eat
