Icaria has a population of only 8,000, so the statistics of lifespan would
have a large variance. Also, Wikipedia states that "Icaria has a tradition
in the production of strong red wine."

Drinking strong red wine could have a positive effect on health and
longevity.  Perhaps red wine and radiation dose are synergistic in extending

      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
      Does anyone know of measurements made on Icaria?
Seems to me that's an important part of the story.
