The Italian island of Sardinia has more than six times as many centenarians as the mainland and ten times as many as in North America. Why? According to psychologist Susan Pinker, it's not a sunny disposition or a low-fat, gluten-free diet that keeps the islanders healthy -- it's their emphasis on close personal relationships and face-to-face interactions.
