    They survived by practicing the fundamental economic principle: ‘eat a little, save a little and spend a little.’

    HEALTH CRISIS, yesterday, today and tomorrow! It’s time for all of us to act to improve our HEALTH and strengthen our human immune system.
    The venerable Centenarian-members of Living Legends from life’s experiences in historical context, say to all of us, especially the youths, simply:
    Develop a Culture of Health. EAT BETTER and EXERCISE MORE so that we can all TAKE CONTROL OF OUR HEALTH and be better together.
    Plant, Eat and Trade- PET action! – fresh Fruits and Vegetables.
    Grow Herbs in the garden and use them.
