The Okinawa Program: How the World's Longest-Lived People Achieve Everlasting Health--And How You Can Too
Three Rivers Press, 2002 - Health & Fitness - 484 pages
There is nothing more universal than the desire to slow down the aging process, to live a long, full life with health, energy, and independence. 'The Okinawa Program' presents the first evidence-based program to make this possible. Authored by a team of preeminent medical and scientific experts, this breakthrough book documents the diet, exercise, and lifestyle practices of the world's healthiest, longest-lived people and reveals how readers can apply these practices to their own lives. In Okinawa, the occurrence of heart disease is only one fifth that of American levels. The rate of breast, ovarian, and prostate cancers is less than a quarter of American levels. And the number of centenarians per hundred thousand is six times that of the United States. Most important, Okinawans have the world's longest disability-free life expectancy.
