Publisher's Summary

At the southernmost prefecture of Japan lives a population who treats centenarians as if they are ordinary beings and are not walking miracles. And why shouldn't they when they live in a place where aging past 80 or even a hundred years isn't a miracle but is an inevitability? Such is the way of those who, to us with an average life expectancy of only 70 years, seem to be immortals. Besides collectively owning a world record for their longevity, Okinawans are strong even against senility, have a low risk of catching age-related diseases, especially heart disease, and are of such pleasing temperaments as if they came from another world.

Imagine all the free time they have to enjoy the remainder of their lives after retirement - and the energy, too. Since the discovery of this simple but amazing fact about the prefecture, people all over the world have been trying to find out a way to live as long.

Their conclusions? Okinawans have been forced to feed on specific food types for the whole of their lives. Why? Because of how they live: isolated in the fertile Ryukyu Islands. If you are one of those people who want to get the same long life and overall good health without leaving the comfort of the city, then you have the right book in your hands.
