The vast majority of people will not live to see their 100th birthday. In fact, it is estimated that only one out of 5,000 people in the world will live to see their 100th birthday. However, the number of people living until the age of 100 is much higher than the national average in Okinawa, Japan. People who live in Okinawa have extremely low rates of autoimmune diseases, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer and colon cancer.

The reason that people in Okinawa live much longer than many people in other countries is because they eat very healthy. People who live in this country eat lots of fruits, vegetables and other low-calorie foods. They also get plenty of omega 3 fatty acids, which are a group of fats that keep the heart and brain healthy. Furthermore, the residents of Okinawa regularly engage in positive, meaningful activities that boost mental and physical health.
