  • The people of Hunza, called Hunzakuts, are famous for robust health, longevity, valor, and self-reliance. Lifespan often exceeds 100.

    Some attribute this health to "a simple diet of fresh food, no coffee or tea, no sugar, plenty of fruit, lots of minerals in the drinking water, and delicate meat in the winter only, from goats fed of the finest grass and herbs...they worked hard in the summer and climbed in the mountains for exercise and danced in the winter...there was little mental stress. We could trust our neighbors to help in a disaster...With such vigor and peace of mind combined, it is no wonder an average person lived to be 90 or 100."
