OKINAWANS

Since I last visited Ushi five years ago, she's taken a new job, tried to run away from home, and started wearin g perfume. Normal for a young woman, perhaps, but Ushi is 103. When I ask about the perfume, she jokes that she has a new boyfriend, then puts a hand over her mouth and gives a long heart­ warming laugh.

"Okinawans have one-fifth the

heart disease, o ne-fourth

the breast and prostate cancer, and one-third less mental health problems than Americans;' says Craig Willcox of the Okinawa Centenarian Study. What's the key to their success? "Ikigai certainly helps;' Willcox says. The word translates to "reason for living;' and it may help to prevent stress and diseases such as high blood pressure.

Okinawans have a low-calorie diet. ''A full plate of Okinawan vegetables, tofu , mise soup, and a little fish or meat contains fe\ver calories than a small hamburger;' says Makoto Suzuki of the Okinawa Centenarian Study. "And it will have many more healthy nutrients."
