YAKIMA, Wash. - National Geographic author Dan Buettner talked about living longer and better as the latest Town Hall speaker Wednesday at the Capitol Theatre.
He wrote the best-selling book, "The Blue Zones." It identifies areas around the world where people have lived longer lives. He says most people are close to making major improvements in the way they live but fall short.
"The average American should live 10 to 12 years longer and we're missing it because of small, little things that we do wrong."
Buettner also spent some time at KNDO doing an interview to promote his book for the BBC.

"This has been an extremely gratifying trip. If you'll have me back again, I'll come back.This is what's really happening in our country, not the gloom and doom coming from our politicians.It's a great relief to be here in Yakima, really to see and be a part of something like this It's refreshing to come to a pace where people still come together for a true town hall.
