Japanese people have topped the list of long life expectancy again.

The data below was collected from 2005-2010 by the United Nations.

79 years old for male and 86.1 yrs for female.

Average 82.6 years

Despite high stress, high  population density and other negative factors, a proper diet of fresh fish, rice, miso soup and other healthy Japanese food has been attributed to this longevity.And no, Dynamite Scallop in mayonnaise does not count.

Which country has the shortest life span?

The honor goes to Mozambique at 39.2 yrs old…

Wow, that’s short…

So, Eat Healthy, Limit Stress and beat the odds.

Live to 100 yrs…

Live.
