BOLIVIA:TSIMANE PEOPLE HAVE THE HEALTHIEST HEARTS. Tsimane clan women pose in Beni region of Bolivia. The healthiest hearts in the world have been found in the Tsimane people in the forests of Bolivia, said researchers on this year International Day of Happiness on March 20, 2017. An 80-year-old Tsimane has about the same heart and artery health as the average American in his or her 50s, the team reports in the Lancet medical journal. Moreover the Tsimane people walk, ride bikes or canoe everywhere. Their staple foods are home-grown rice, plantains and corn. If they want meat, they go catch it. And they don't watch television.
