Hunza Turks : Scientists are on the hunt for those Turks who have unique characteristics in the world.
The Hunza Turks come from the Hun Turkic dynasty. In the valley of the Hunza River, at more than 2,400 meters above sea level, between India and Pakistan, there is a place called “the oasis of youth”, inhabited by the Hunza people.
The Hunza Turks who are Muslims, live on average between 110 and 120 years. For this population, 65 is only halfway through life.
Women become mothers at 65-70. And people who die at 100 are considered to have died young.
Moreover, there is no case of cancer among this people. Not only are they spared from cancer, but also from other common diseases.
This longevity of life prompted scientists to launch research.
The cause, according to scientists, is that these people live in a region with a high concentration of oxygen, at more than 6,000m above sea level, that they drink natural fresh water and only eat cultivated fruits and vegetables. by themselves.
A specialist of the Hunzas, Ralph Bircher, in his book “Hunza Turks: a people who ignore the disease”, synthesized an important amount of information on the diet of this people:

– They consume a large amount of raw food
– Their diet consists mainly of fruits and vegetables

– They do not drink alcohol and do not consume sugar
– Their salt consumption is very moderate
