For the duration of the past twenty to thirty years, residents of Japan still ranks first on the basis of single life expectancy. A fresh report shows that female life expectancy in Japan rose to 86.5 year’s and 79.5 years for males. There was a raise of about five to six months as compared to the earlier year’s data. The Statistics, in 2009, were produced by the Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare of Japan. However, the life expectancy of Japanese men this year was found out to be down from fourth to fifth.
When we compare the life expectancy between inhabitants of the developed and developing countries or the poor countries of Africa would seem a real distinction. The Population in the developed countries has a longer age than with developing countries.
Researches have proven this that the Japanese people have got the longest life-span in the world, much greater than in the America and Europe. Japanese men live to be old on average eighty years, and the Japanese woman much higher at eighty five. The primary reason of the Japanese diet is eating only unto eighty percent full. The food is always offered in a very artistic way. It is usually served in beautiful dishes. Dairy and bread are not part of the diet!! Japanese do not eat any white flour.
Japanese noodles are made from buckwheat flour. Soya beans are eaten in many forms – tofu, and fermented soy foods such as Miso, Tempeh and Natto. The Soya products help out in reducing heart attacks and high blood pressure and are a rich source of protein. The Japanese don’t like to eat sweet desserts. Their desserts have a very lesser sweet taste which is produced from pounded rice (mochi) ,mashed sweet potatoes ,sweet bean paste and chestnuts. These may sound a bit unexciting but these deserts are way much tastier and quite healthier too.
The beverage of Green tea has been there in Japan from a very long time. The Japanese green tea is pretty much similar to rice and fish, is consumed every day by most Japanese. It is often taken with most meals, given as gifts, and used in the most important of ceremonies. Green tea contains vitamins such as C and E, high in dietary fiber content which helps lower cholesterol, and raises your metabolism. Green tea is possibly the most convenient and least expensive way to live a longer healthier life.
The question is, why are there differences in life between the developed and developing countries? In the view of Japan, one of the reasons why citizens live longer is the rapid advancement of medical treatment, especially for diseases cause death, such as cancer, stroke, and heart. Also, the Japanese diet is well-known and a way of healthy standard of living. Longer life is a nice thing but it has its disadvantages too because a country with small birthrate and decreasing population, the growth of elderly population means an unevenness in the population.
