People's longevity is getting longer thanks to the advancement of new technology and hygiene and so on since decades ago. Actually, I used to live with my grandmother and grandfather so I know the reasons for that. Here are some specific reasons of living longer.
First is regarding the advancement of medical technology. My grandfather had a bad health problem about his lung but his disease was really improved when he started to get new treatment. If he couldn't get this treatment, he couldn't live longer.
Second is regarding healthy foods. In Japan, there are many healthy foods to support your health. My grandmother drunk medicated liquor called Youmeishu and it was really helpful for her to maintain her healthy. I think this kinds of food is one factor of lengthen living.
Third is regarding hygiene. My grandmother told that hygiene condition about 50 years ago was really bad and it might cause spreading infectious diseases. Actually hygiene condition was getting improved rapidly and it would prevent spreading diseases. If local government didn't improve hygiene, death rate would not be improved.
Thanks to above reasons, our longevity is getting longer and Japan people would live in aging society in the near future. We should think not only longer longevity but also how to live in that society. And I think that it would create better society.
