Episode 25: The Okinawan health advantage and how they lost it (Part 1 of Can I live to 100?)

Okinawans have been one of the longest living people groups in the world. They have one of the highest numbers of centenarians and live very independent and functional lives well into their 80s, 90s and even 100s. Sadly, newer generations of Okinawans do not enjoy this same same vibrant health as their older counterparts. Why is that? What happened? And what lessons can we learn about how to live to 100 in North America?

This is Part 1 of a health talk presented at a Dinner with the Doctor event hosted by Pathways to Wholeness Lifestyle Medicine at the Toronto Japanese Seventh-day Adventist Church in Toronto. Dinner with the Doctor is a community event featuring delicious plant-based food and a health talk by doctors on lifestyle medicine.
