What other groups, though? Just other religions?
I am not sure where the infomation was gathered, but I did recall reading an article in National Geographic about Seventh Day Adventists. November 2005
**I am at work right now so unable to dig up the copy. I will look when I get home to see if it mentions where they got the information.
My father is Adventist and we have had conversations about this very topic. I remember him mentioning surveys and such that where done, but I will have to try and remember to ask him for more details. I don't think that this data is particularily religious in nature - from my upbringing I have seen that Seventh Day Adventists do believe in living a healthy lifestyle and eating a very healthy diet. Though based on religious ideals it just simply makes sense that healthy living would result in longer living (on average)
