A new study done in Cuba claims to show that the secret to living a long life — as evidenced in the nonagenerian members of The Buenavista Social Club — lies in the incessant consumption of coffee, tabacco and…lovin’.
The longevity of Cuban musician Compay Segundo was not an exception: a study conducted in the Santa Clara region in central Cuba has revealed a fascinating piece of data: the people that live in the region easily reach 100 years of age, in spite of their elevated consumption of tobacco and coffee.
In addition, the elderly people surveyed stay lucid with varied interests, including sex.
According to Spain’s 20 Minutos, the majority of elderly Cubans have a diet based on the consumption of “fish, eggs, milk, non-red meats, vegetables, and boiled foods.” The study also attributes the famed longevity to the “hard work” that is a fact of life in rural Cuba.
