Okinawa is a chain of islands off the coast of Japan and is home to some of the healthiest seniors on the planet, with many living past the century mark. Not only do these seniors enjoy among the world’s highest life expectancies, they also benefit from more healthy years, free from disability and illness. Heart disease and dementia rates are lower than average, and rates for breast and prostate cancer are lower still. Obviously the elders of Okinawa are doing something right! Being smart people, why wouldn’t we try to copy what they are doing?
