Living a Long Life
It is often said that Japanese people, on average, live much longer than Europeans. To a large extend this must be due to the food most
Japanese people eat since from the point of view of the life-style, life in modern Japan is no less stressful than ours in the west. The
Japanese live on a diet largely made up of fish and rice. At lunch-time a typical Japanese family will consume at least twice as many
vegetables as we do in Europe. In comparison with Europeans, the Japanese eat far less meat and fewer potatoes; at the same time,
they eat seven times more fresh fish than we do which make their diet much healthier by far. It would be fair to say that, in general,
the Japanese consume far less sugar than Europeans, though the modern Japanese frequent visitors to Europe on business or for
pleasure are discovering the pleasures and dangers of western-style eating habits.
