Many factors contribute to your health and more importantly, your longevity. Genetics play a role, diet and exercise, available health care and environmental factors that are harder to control, all play a role and impact your health. America is the most industrialized and wealthiest nation on Earth but we are NOT the healthiest.
Pollution. Obesity. Chemical additives and genetically modified food. Not only do these reduce your lifespan, but they contribute to many serious ailments like breast and colon cancer, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, herart attacks, liver and kidney functions and even diminished libido and sexual functions in men.
So what can you do?
There is one population that seems to have figured out how to beat the odds and live healthy well into old age. In fact, this population has more people living to be 100 years or older than any other population on Earth.
They are the people of Okinawa Japan.
So what’s the secret that keeps the Okinawans astonishingly healthy well into old age? Are they not susceptible to the same environmental factors that affect Americans? Is their island somehow better suited for humans than the rest of the world?
Okinawans' island may be better suited but not because it isn’t polluted. It’s better only because it’s surrounded by water that is the garden for their super food. Their secret to unparalleled health and longevity is what they eat! And their nutritional “secret” superfood is seaweed!
Seaweed accounts for as much as 10% of the Okinawans diet and is included in everyday cooking in literally hundreds of ways. In fact, the Okinawans have included seaweed as a regular part of their diet going back as far as 2700 BC!
Not only do the Okinawans live longer than the rest of the world, they live healthier and happier too.
Studies of lifestyle interventions, such as diet and caloric intake, have shown that significant increases in lifespan can be gained. The natural inclusion of seaweed in the Okinawan diet may play an important part on their health and longevity.
