3 Interesting Facts About Longevity

Jun 30, 2011 No Comments by
  1. Japan has the longest life expectancy in the world. Yet people in the Okinawan Islands in southern Japan enjoy even longer and healthier lives than the average Japanese. Their diet secret? Lots of grains, vegetables, soy, and fish; less meat; poultry, and dairy. There is, however, no scientific basis to the suggestion by some supplement manufacturers that “coral calcium” is the secret of the Okinawan s’ longevity.
  2. Various studies of Mormons, Seventh-Day Adventists, and Trappist monks—all people who follow a vegetarian diet and engage in a prudent lifestyle—also show that they enjoy increased life expectancy.
  3. North Americans also seem to be doing something right since they are the healthier that they were two decades ago. People over age 85 are one of the fastest growing segments of the population, proving that today you can live longer and healthier if you practice good health habits.
