Title :The Effects of Post-War Dietary Change on Longevity and Health in Okinawa
Authors :Todoriki, Hidemi

Issue Date :2004
Abstract :Life expectancy for men in Okinawa has fallen sharply relative to other prefectures of Japan and although at present women still retain their lead in Okinawa, if present trends continue, they too will fall. The nutrition transition in Okinawa with regards to increased fat intake and increased bodyweight (i. e. schoolchildren population), may be related to socio-political, socio-economic and socio-cultural changes that were set in motion either directly or indirectly during U.S. administration beginning in 1945.
