Ladies Living Longer…

japanese

Last week I read an article about the women of Japan livinig well into their 80’s. In fact the average Japanese lady live to be 86.41 years.  Is that an actual age? Anyway,  there was a report which collated data from 50 countries around the world.  The long life for the Japanese women is credited to their diet and lifestyle.  Also their National Health System there is excellent.

Second place is Hong Kong, third place is Spain and France where women can look forward to living until they are 82.

With all that said, I have a neighbour who is 97 years old! She lives alone and does most things for herself.  She cooks her meals and cleans her apartment. So I wondered how many amazing women like her do we have here in the UK?

Did the Japanese collect  data from Great Britain?  Just wondering…
