A survey to check what people with health and longevity eat in a town where was famous for longevity was conducted.
101 years old male who actively does farm work walks a 3-mile round-trip. He eats 3 eggs that is good for the muscle for breakfast.
91 years old female who actively makes salt eats a lot of pork and eggs which is good for the muscle for breakfast.
95 years old male who actively takes care of horses and does farm work eats a lot of pork for breakfast.
Why does eating eggs and pork for breakfast lead to longevity?
Eggs and pork are rich in protein. A lot of people tend not to take sufficient protein for breakfast. That weakens muscles. That is why it is important to take sufficient protein for breakfast.
If you take protein, you can build muscles without exercise. That means, if you don’t take protein for breakfast, there is a risk of weakening muscles.
Recommended daily intake is 1 gram/1 kilogram. If your weight is 60 kilograms, you need 60 grams of protein per day.
1 egg contains about 7 grams of protein.
92 years old male who is an active dairy farmer has never had a fracture. His bone age is about 30s-40s years old which is -50 years old. He drinks a glass of milk 3 times a day.
91 years old female who makes salt also drinks a glass of milk 3 times a day.
101 years old male who does farm work also drinks milk every day.
A lot of people in this town often eat pork.
Collagen contained in pork strengthens the bone.
Two third of the bone is calcium and one third of the bone is collagen. Collagen makes the bone elastic and prevents fracture.
People with health and longevity in this town go outside after breakfast.
Why does going outside after breakfast makes the bone stronger?
By being exposed to sunlight, vitamin D3 that promotes the absorption of calcium is produced.
It is recommended to be exposed to sunlight about 15 minutes a day. If you are worried about sun burn, you can produce vitamin D3 by exposing only your palms.
Prevent high blood pressure. Stop the aging of blood vessels.
101 years old male who is an active farmer eats salty food without any worry, but his blood pressure is within the proper range. He eats some blocks of brown sugar (Fig. 1) as a snack.
Brown sugar containing a lot of potassium has the effect to discharge salt from the body.
Brown sugar contains 1100 mg of potassium within 100 grams, while white sugar contains only 2 mg.
Potassium is rich in banana, yam, natto, seaweed, etc.
91 years old female who makes natural salt takes a 30 minutes nap after lunch.
According to a research in the University of Athene, Greece (2007), people who took 30-minute nap more than 3 times a week have 37 % lower death ratio of heart diseases due to abnormal activity of the artery.
Why does taking a nap stop the aging of blood vessels?
The cause of all the cell damage including blood vessels is active oxygen.
Active oxygen decreases by sleeping.
People with health and longevity in this town drink alcohol every day.
Alcohol makes the blood flow better.
It is recommended to drink a bottle of beer (500 ml) a day.
