A recent study found that all Japanese centenarians have one thing in common. It is she who is the key reason for a long and healthy life.
As noted by Dr. Osman Erk, lifestyle, physical activity, of course, play an important role in how long a person will eventually live. However, the main reason is not this, but moderation in the use of food. This was discovered by scientists during a study in which two thousand people took part. Each of them was over a hundred years old.
The inhabitants of the Japanese island of Okinawa are considered the record holders for life expectancy. According to some studies, eating healthy food in small quantities allows cells to regenerate on their own, helps to strengthen immunity, and reduces the amount of harmful substances entering the body. At the same time, the inhabitants of Japan eat food often, but do not gorge themselves “to the full.” Also, their diet mostly includes vegetables and plants. But animal products in this diet are only 10 percent.
