The best piece of advice that 111-year-olds Alfred Smith and Bob Weighton have for anyone who wants to live to the same as them is to "eat oats" and to "avoid dying." The second piece of advice is obviously given with Alfred's tongue firmly in his cheek but it highlights how important your diet is to your general health and wellbeing. Bob Weighton and Alfred Smith both turned 111 on March 29, 2019. As the oldest people in Britain surely they know the secret to longevity.
The main advice of eating well is something we shouldn't ignore. A recent study published in The Independent concluded that Japan was one of the healthiest countries and the diet its people enjoy of rice, fish, fruit, milk and vegetables is responsible for their long lifespans. Japanese people live on average to 85 years old. The UK's average life expectancy is 81 years old. Those numbers put Japan second behind Monaco, which does seem to be a fair comparison when you consider that Monaco's residents are mainly mega-rich folks, with the United Kingdom coming in at number 29.
A team of researchers at the National Centre for Global Health and Medicine in Tokyo analysed the diet and lifestyle choices made by Japanese citizens using a selection of 36,624 male and 42,920 female volunteers aged between 45 and 75 years old. None had any history of cancer, heart disease or stroke, and each were tracked for a full 15 years before their numbers were crunched and the findings published.
"Our findings suggest that balanced consumption of energy, grains, vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, eggs, soy products, dairy products, confectionaries, and alcoholic beverages can contribute to longevity by decreasing the risk of death, predominantly from cardiovascular disease, in the Japanese population."
Super foods were not on the diet for the Japanese people monitored by the National Centre in Japan and neither of Britain's oldest men consumed anything out of the ordinary throughout their long lives. The interesting part of the findings in Japan is the "balanced consumption" part of the conclusion. If you check through the types of food consumed, you'll notice a few foods we're told to limit including confectionaries and alcoholic beverages.
