Scientists declassified the pledge of longevity of Japanese women

Japanese women are famous for their good health and live a record long - up to 86,4 years on average. The secret of their longevity is simple: they eat a lot of raw fish and vegetables and drink green tea. At the same time, residents of Japan eat no more than Europeans, and even less. Their daily diet is about a quarter less calories. The main thing, it turns out, is not the quantity, but the quality of food.

“They eat fish three times a week, eat a lot of vegetables and whole grains and soy products,” explains one of the authors of the study, renowned gerontologist Craig Wilcox, who studied the reasons for the longevity of its inhabitants in Okinawa for many years. “They eat the most on the planet. konbu seaweed, as well as octopus and squid meat, rich in taurine, which lowers cholesterol and blood pressure. They also drink healthy green tea. ”

An important role is played by food culture in Japan. Japanese eat on small plates with chopsticks. It slows down the process of eating and does not allow to eat a lot.

Interestingly, the Japanese for longevity are inferior to Icelanders, Swedes and Swiss, but given the traditional passion of the people of the rising sun to alcohol and the habit of working for many hours, 79,9 years, according to Times, is not so bad.
