Why don’t the Japanese get old?
The Japanese, like all people, unfortunately, are getting old. And the question, apparently, is inspired by the widely discussed book on the Internet ” Why Japanese do not age.
Secrets of the land of the Rising Sun” (in the English version of “the Okinawa Program”),written by Americans Bradley J. Wilcox and Dee Craig Wilcox, Japanese Makoto Suzuki.
The book draws attention to the fact that among the Japanese, residents of the island of Okinawa, there are a lot of people who live for 100 years or more.
According to the authors, the secrets of the phenomenal longevity of the islanders have long been known to all the inhabitants of the Earth: rational nutrition, exercise, and observance of spiritual traditions.
It’s just that for Japanese people living in Okinawa, these are not recipes, but standards of life that they strictly follow.
