The Secret Behind the Longevity Story

The Secret Behind the Longevity Story Did you see the marvelous story of Adventist faith, Sabbath and “The Secrets of Living Longer” in the National Geographic and on CNN and ABC television? The longevity story about Loma Linda was only possible because of the 1976 Adventist Health Study–1. If it wasn’t for the 34,000 Californian Adventists who joined the study, there would be no evidence. There never would have been a story. Were you in the 1976 Adventist Health Study? Do you know someone who was? Whether living to 60 years or 100 years, all contributed to the story. The health discoveries from AHS–1 have benefited millions of people and enhanced the reputation of Adventists worldwide. The potential for the current Adventist Health Study–2 (AHS–2) is so much greater. Loma Linda researchers estimate that more than 17,000 of those 1976 participants, now aged between 60 and 100 years of age, are still alive. Nearly 5,000 of these pioneer newsmakers have already enrolled in the AHS–2 study. But it would be wonderful if thousands more of these early participants continued the legacy they created. We encourage all who were in the 1976 AHS–1 study, and all Adventists age 30 or older, to join the current AHS–2 study. Be a positive newsmaker for the future. It’s not too late to return your questionnaire. To sign up, call (877) 700-7077, go online at www.adventisthealthstudy.org or send an e-mail to ahs2extra@llu.edu.
