      This evening ABC TV aired a news report on how
inhabitants of the Greek Island of Icaria live, and stay
healthy, 20 years longer than people in the rest of
Europe.  The story attributed the longevity to diet and
exercise.  On the Internet I find that the radiation level
on Icaria is elevated due to a lot of granite, but I haven't
found what the dose level is.
      Does anyone know of measurements made on Icaria?
Seems to me that's an important part of the story.
