There are different sources of data to tell what country has the longest average Life expectancy. Well, the U.S. Bureau of the Census provides statistics, Okinawa has the longest average life expectancy, at 81.2 years, as of 2005. The shortest is found in Angola, at 36.6. Some other report told us that residents of Andorra, a tiny mountain nation in the Pyrenees between France and Spain, are expected to live to the ripe old age of 83.5. How about USA!? Babies born in the United States in 2005 are expected to live an average of 77.9 years, according to a 2007 study by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics.. Actually, the United States ranks behind 41 other countries. As many of US Citizen are spoiled by the Over Sized Fast Food and their way going to work by car.
According to UN and WHO, People of Hong Kong is the 2nd longest life on earth after Okinawa, has long been endowed with high life expectancies. In 2002, there were 34.7 people 100 years or older per 100,000 residents, the highest life expectancy of any area in the world. Still, while Okinawa may feature the highest population of centenarians -- people who are 100 years of age or older – Japan is ranked second in life expectancy with an average of 82. Reason is that they are still living in rather primitives way, I watched Discovery movies on plant that Old woman of 90 years old walks up hills for harvest on the fruit and carry down the hill everyday…
Some Data 2 years ago showed with HK men expected to live an average of 79.5 years and women to 85.6 years.
The figure for women for the first time puts Hong Kong narrowly ahead of Japan, where women’s life expectancy is now 85.5 years, and Spain, where expectancy is 83.8 years.
Hong Kong is also the top place for male life expectancy, ahead of Iceland at 78.9 years, Switzerland at 78.6 years.
So far I do not know who is the country that people will live longest.
Anyway, This Is not the main point I am trying to talk about as there is different way to translate the data and also there are so many mobile citizen in Hong Kong. So I am not surprises that HK people is amongst the top 2nd Longest Life Expectancy City on Earth. WHY?
HONG KONG: It may be one of the world’s most polluted, noisy and stressful cities, but people in Hong Kong can expect to live longer than anyone else on the planet?
Beside the health consciousness of HK people., being Most of us are coming from Guang Dong , who buys the ideas of Magic of Soups… We drink more than anybody on soup than the people on the other part of the World.
The Soup take up to 98% of water and essence of Food that was made by boiling hours with ingredient of either vegetable, lean meat, or black Chicken, and many other Chinese herbs…We usually drink the soup rather than eating the ingredient. The soup cleans our stomach, intestines, and they way soup goes down our from mouth to stomach, it give you great favour and it works like a sleeping pill… It calms your mind too!
Hong Kong people drink a lot of soup, as you know we have a lot of Bow Yi Lai (who keep more than one wife or two) I had a friend who come home to drink 2nd wife soup during lunch and his first wife’s during dinner… The 2nd Wife soup is usually well prepared with better material and specially boil with heartily effort… In order to get a better impression from her Husband.
Do not forget that there are probably 300,000 men who has a mistress (Yi Lai or 2nd Wife) in China, irregular or irregular one, Registered or yet-to-registered one…hmmm!
Do not quote my number as this is purely my personal data collection by survey on friend and friend of friends…
So my conclusion is The Reason why the long life expectancy of Hong Kong People is because of the SOUP…
"What kind of Soup Today?" Is the standard Question when we ask the Waiters in the Chinese restaurant…
Let’s Cheer with Soup!!
