There is a saying in Japan: "Old people are everybody's treasures."

Take Masaaki Hatsumi, who is 77 years old and one of the world's grandmasters of Ninjutsu. Or Shino Mori, who at 105 is the oldest, and zaniest, television news reader in the world.

Yep, eat right (not western style) and move it or loose it.

I was just reading about this yesterday...

"SCIENTISTS have discovered the “Methuselah” genes whose lucky carriers have a much improved chance of living to 100 even if they indulge in an unhealthy lifestyle.

The genes appear to protect people against the effects of smoking and bad diet and can also delay the onset of age-related illnesses such as cancer and heart disease by up to three decades.

No single gene is a guaranteed fountain of youth. Instead, the secret of longevity probably lies in having the right “suite” of genes, according to new studies of centenarians and their families. Such combinations are extremely rare — only one person in 10,000 reaches the age of 100.

The genes found so far each appear to give a little extra protection against the diseases of old age. Centenarians appear to have a high chance of having several such genes embedded in their DNA."

A great story about the Japanese Centenarians and what was their secretr to live to 100 an still garden etc..

Always stay active and also they ate mostly a bowl of miso soup with rice and raw fish and not taking countless drugs or vitamins as certain people on these forums are always trying to tell us.

Save your money on drugs and supplements and exercise and eat clean and you stand a good chance of hitting your 90's/100's and not be in a nursing home.

Thanks again for posting this John
