Introducing Dan Buettner. Health Insights for our Community in Singapore and Beyond.

Updated: Apr 17

Dan Buettner Singapore

With the internet providing access to so many health experts and talking heads, we often get asked ‘who can be trusted, to watch or follow online, even to enjoy?’ The answer is not always obvious, as those in the media spotlight have their own area of expertise, biases, even their own unique style of presentation.

Whether you are part of our Singapore or global community, in this series of posts we present some of the key online health leaders whose media channels we enjoy.

Meet Dan Buettner, PhD; discoverer of the longevity Blue Zones.

A small disclaimer, we do not necessarily endorse or agree everything that our featured personalities nor their guests might say, but we do enjoy the general direction that they take. Please talk to your doctor, or medical practitioner most familiar with your medical history, before implementing any changes in diet, exercise or lifestyle, especially if you are under treatment.

Your health and longevity starts with you! Prioritising your own self-care is the vital first step to improving your health and long-term wellbeing. Wherever you are in your journey to health, at The Whole Health Practice we work with you, to turn knowledge and intent into targeted and effective action.

Stay Healthy,



Dan Buettner / Blue Zones

Dan Buettner is a National Geographic Fellow, acclaimed as a #1 New York Times Bestselling Author with five books focusing on longevity and happiness, alongside being a three-time Guinness World Record distance cycling holder.

His groundbreaking research led to the discovery of the Blue Zones, where people live the longest, healthiest lives. This includes newly minted Singapore Blue Zone. He has authored best-selling books such as "The Blue Zones - 9 Lessons for Living Longer", "The Blue Zones Kitchen" and "The Blue Zones Challenge."

Beyond writing, Buettner actively collaborates with governments, employers, and health insurance companies to implement Blue Zones Projects, which have positively impacted over 5 million Americans by fostering healthier lifestyles at the community level.

Whether writing, speaking, or implementing Blue Zones initiatives, Buettner embodies the principles of longevity and happiness in his own life.

Buettner does not have his own YouTube channel. Enjoy this interview with Rich Roll (learn more about Rich here)
