Centenarians, or people aged 100 and over, are the most quickly booming segment of the population. With an aging population comes increased attention to longevity—from taking vitamins and supplements to keeping the mind active through number-placement puzzles and crosswords, it seems that everyone has an opinion about what factors contribute to living longer. The goal is not only to live longer, but to also live better longer. Look at most any culture and you will find lifestyle behaviors that individuals in that culture praise for their life extending benefits. In fact, there is one place on earth that has been called the ideal place for aging: Okinawa, Japan. With the lowest rates of cancer, stroke and heart disease related-deaths and the highest life expectancy for both men and women than anywhere else in world, Okinawans provide a fascinating model for healthy longevity.
Scientists have been following and studying the seniors living in Okinawa in order to find the factors that contribute most to a longer, more productive and happier life. Perhaps the most important finding in this research is that lifestyle factors have been found to play a larger role in the promotion of healthy longevity than genetic factors.
