Why Japanese live longer

Why Japanese Live Longer?

Japan has the highest life expectancy in the world. The average life of men in Japan is 79 years whereas that of women is 86 years. But what makes the citizens of nation of the rising Sun live so long. We have discovered some of the secrets and here they are.

The Diet
What we eat has a huge impact on our health. I can tell you that what Japanese people eat is healthy. Japanese people don’t eat as much Red meat. Red meat is high in cholesterol and thus is not considered good for health. Japanese eat a lot of vegetables although in America, most people hate eating vegetables.

They also eat a lot of rice & fish. Thus they make sure that there is no lack of vitamins & minerals in the body. Although increase in western habits of eating breads, sweets and refined sugars are some of the reasons which has deteriorated the healthy aspect of Japanese nutrition to some extent.

Lot of Tea
Whereas Americans drink a lot of coffee, Japanese drink a lot of tea. When there is so much said about the benefits of tea & coffee, I can say that tea is overall better than coffee specially when you are drinking a lot of it every day.

Different Cooking Techniques
Some techniques that Japanese use are fermenting, boiling and slow cooking. They also drink a bowl full of hot soup before every meal.

A large chunk of Japanese prefer walking. They take buses & trains to commute. Hence Japanese stand for a long duration of time. There are several studies which show a direct correlation between how long you sit and how early you are likely to die.

Japanese are obsessed with cleanliness. So much is their obsession that Japan is one of the cleanest countries in the world. There is no denying the fact cleanliness leads to good health.

Poop Squatting
It’s healthy to do squats. When you don’t have time for exercising, it’s good to squat while you poop. It helps you get rid of hemorrhoids. While hemorrhoids are pretty common in Western countries, they’re nearly nonexistent in Asian, squatting countries.

What You can do to live longer
Who does not want to live longer. But life without good health is only a curse. So just change your lifestyle. Eat what is healthy and take time for exercise. if you can’t take time out for exercise, then go the Japanese way and make walking, standing & healthy eating part of your life.
