This large scale population study was conducted in Japan for more than 15 years. The study was followed by more than 36,000 men and 42,000 women aged between 45 and 75 from across Japan. The study revealed that the people who stuck to the Japanese government’s recommended dietary guidelines had a 15% lower risk of dying during that time compared to those who didn’t followed government’s dietary guidelines. The people who followed the guidelines were 22% less likely to suffer a fatal stroke than others.

The guidelines set up by the Japanese government in 2005 recommend a diet high in certain carbohydrates such as rice and buckwheat noodles, with plenty of vegetables, fish, meat and tofu, plus some fruit and dairy too.

Japanese have one of the highest life expectancy in the world with an average life expectancy of 87 years in women and 80 years in men.

Two famous dishes from Japanese cuisine include sushi and maki rolls which are not only very delicious but mega healthy as well. Now this Japanese diet could be the secret to a longer life as the study revealed.

The study also shows that balanced consumption of energy, grains, vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, eggs, soy products, dairy products, confectioneries, and alcoholic beverages can contribute to longevity by decreasing the risk of death, predominantly from cardiovascular disease, in the Japanese population.

So what about eating Japanese cuisine from today? I think this study is going to increase the revenue of Japanese restaurants worldwide. Because who do not want to live a longer life? Nobody I think.
