Go to Japan and live to 100...tasman1

New data from Japan's Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare reveal the country has broken its previous record for the number of people living past their 100th birthday.
The country has the highest proportion of people over 65 compared to every other country on Earth. Coupled with falling birth rates, the dwindling pool of young people is struggling to cover the costs related to an ageing population.

Japan's centenarian population has been rising year over year since 1971, when there were just 339 centenarians.

Last year, government data showed there were 65,000 centenarians. This year marks the 47th consecutive year the country of 127 million has broken its own record.

I would only want to live to 100 if I didn't need anyone to take care of me.

Who wants to be 100 and in nursing home being forced fed fish and seaweed? :mrgreen:

I think Japan is having more centenarians. Happy to hear these words. I am from India. It is very hard to find a single centenarian due to socio economic and health conditions. But getting up and up the average age of life in India. Hats off to Japan.

If that is what they eat I should live that long.
Only 18 more years for me to reach that milestone. :D

I so totally agree with you, Valerie!!!! :geek:
Even 70 in this day and age is pushing it. See to many elder people in homes suffering. Such a sad state :(

I have personally known several people who were centurions and I think I will pass. If I get passed 80 (less than a year) and I get a chance to punch my ticket I will GRAB it. I already filled out the directive to let me ride if the train pulls up, no way I want to stay here as a vegetable.

My grandfather lived into his 90's. Altho he did move in with one of his son's, he was still
totally capable of caring for himself. The exception was that he lived in a rural area, could
not drive to town. He was at the stage that he wasn't real active but he could still walk,
take showers, feed himself, hold interesting conversations, etc etc etc.

I have known of people that were 100 or near it, that I would not have guessed their age
if it hadn't been for someone telling me. There are people that age or near it, that still
function perfectly, go dancing, etc.

If people live to 100 in the USA, they won't be able to get their social security until
they are 80.
