Jews of East European or Ashkenazic background have the highest longevity of all groups on Earth,In a recent study the top three groups were Pre World War 11 Japanese (those Japanese who were not introduced to western food as post world war Japanese) Icelandic (diet high in omega 3 oils consisting of mostly of fish) and East European Jews.The Jews Won Hands down! Thou Jews of Ashkenazic background Have A diet low in vegetables high in starch and fat they easily won the survey. The Believed reason is that from a historical period lets say years circa 1000 to 1900 As Jews of Eastern Europe were confined to walled sections of the cities known as Ghettos which had the worst sanitation ( horse-drawn Carts with uncleaned horse droppings) Narrow streets congested living quarters plus had buildings exceeded and raised up as high as 8 stories hundreds years ago unheard of till the last century to accommodate the large population with in the Jewish pale of Settlement, In that period Typhoid and every airborne disease ran rampant within the narrow walled section of the streets of Eastern Europa,and subsequently as the centuries past preceding generations where of healthier stock as compared to those populations of non-Jewish origin. To Jews a super-food is not green leafy vegetables or a strawberry for example but a pastrami club sandwich If you examine the populations of Major world cities Jews Are a minority , but as people reach their senior years the statics change and Jews become Senior and then become the Majority strange as it may sound. The survey did not include Sephardic (Spanish Portuguese or Jews of Middle Eastern stock )
