    Perhaps the diet with most epidemiological evidence to date for being the best diet is the Blue Zone Diet. The Blue Zone Diet is a 95% -100% plant based diet and has several other guidelines. Epidemiologists, demographers, and researchers identified hotspots where people generally lived the longest and healthiest. They labeled these areas as Blue Zones and identified the dietary habits of the residents. For the experts out there, does any other diet have better epidemiological support with respect to longevity? I am puzzled as to why researchers do not mention the Blue Zones and the dietary practices therein when this topic is discussed. It seems like Paleo, Keto and Plant Paradox enthusiasts like to bury this info. For more information, see https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6125071/
