Japanese women Have the Longest Age
“Last year, heat waves increased mortality, which triggered heat strokes and heart problems,” said one of Japan’s ministry staff, according to the NY Daily News.
Longevity in Japan reflects improved medical care and high standard of living. However, increased survival was not accompanied by a rise in the birthrate. The proportion of the elderly in this country is higher than the group of children.
The second ranked country in terms of longevity is held by women in Hong Kong, reaching 85.9 years of age. Meanwhile, the third ranked is held by a French woman whose age could reach 84.8 years.
Women from the United States based on a research by a team from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, is ranked 15. They could reach the age of 81.3 years.
