Green tea, raw fish linked to longer life span in women

By Larry Seely     Apr 26, 2014 in Health
The Office of National Statistics has released a study on Japanese women and their long lifespan. The report found that drinking green tea and eating raw fish helped lead to an average life expectancy of 86 years.
Green tea is known for anti-oxidants and polyphenols, both of which help in prevention of cancer, high blood pressure, and heart disease. It was also reported that the average Japanese women intake 25 percent less calories than those females in Europe and the tea. along with the fish help in overall health and long life.
The report also stated that eating with chopsticks slowed down the consumption time of food, allowing the body more time to digest intake and helps stop over eating.
Japan has more than 50,000 people aged over 100, but surprisingly the diet seems to only help women as the average age for a Japanese man is under 80.
It was also noted that pressure of money, work, and other outside influences often effect diet and health. Creating a more relaxing environment and limiting sugar will also improve mental and physical health, but for women, try some green tea and enjoy a longer life.
