Dole Chairman Shares Secret to Longevity
David H. Murdock, Chairman and Owner of Dole Food Company, appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” last week. The show asked the question: Could it be possible to live to 150? Oprah talked to Mr. Murdock, 87, about his belief in the power of proper diet to dramatically extend the human lifespan.
Oprah joined Mr. Murdock at the California Health & Longevity Institute, where she saw firsthand some of the healthy habits that have helped him defy the odds and break down age barriers. On the show, Oprah visited Mr. Murdock at his farm, where they rode bikes, juiced fruit and vegetables (see recipe below!), and even went on a visit to the local Costco. Along the way, Mr. Murdock shared how his fish-vegetarian diet and daily activity have helped promote vitality throughout the years.
