Ready to live longer? Author to give three California cities wellness overhaul

Dan Buettner knows the keys to help you live longer. The Blue Zones author identified the longest-living people in the world, and last year brought their wellness lessons to one Minnesota city.

The result?

Life expectancy shot up three years.

After successfully overhauling Albert Lea, Minn., by introducing citywide health and wellness initiatives in restaurants, offices and schools, Buettner is headed to the West Coast.

Today, he announces on American Morning the next three cities he will make over:

Manhattan Beach, Calif.
Hermosa Beach, Calif.
Redondo Beach, Calif.
