Do Christians live longer?

Here is a link to an article that claims people who believe in god live longer than others.

When you look at real data, you see a different answer.

The quest to live longer is one of humanity’s oldest dreams and three isolated communities seem to have stumbled across the answer. So what can they teach us about a longer life?
Something remarkable links the remote Japanese island of Okinawa, the small Sardinian mountain town of Ovodda and Loma Linda in the US. People live longer in these three places than anywhere else on earth.

While the article mentions that that the group in Loma Linda is religious, Seventh Day Adventist, not exactly mainstream Christianity, the one component that was common in all three groups was diet.
