Okinawa losing grip on long life honors

Date Posted: 2006-07-28

Okinawa, well known as the place where people live long lives, is slipping.

The Okinawa Prefecture is reportedly pessimistic that the average life span of males here is on the decline. It says the trend is continuing, and notes that obesity, diabetes, overindulgence in alcohol and cancer are principal causes.

A government official says suicide is still a major cause of death on Okinawa, but declined to state numbers or comparisons with recent years. He says the Prefecture is panning a campaign aimed at making Okinawans aware of the longevity crisis.
