Description
Recently, the lifestyle-related diseases (diabetes mellitus, hypertension and dyslipidemia) have been paid much attention in Japan because of their increasing frequency and devastating effect on health of persons of middle or advanced age. The diseases are caused by the westernized living environment : an excessive energy intake with meals containing abundant animal stuff and physical inactivity, thereby increase risk for obesity, in particular visceral obesity. The visceral obesity is thought to be a crucial cause situated at the most upper stream for the lifestyle-related diseases, which make progress in arteriosclerotic process, resulting in cardiovascular diseases. The visceral obesity accompanied with at least two of the lifestyle-diseases described above is now called the metabolic syndrome. The lifestyle intervention such as reduction in energy intake with a Japanese style cuisine containing less fat comparing to a westernized cuisine, is the most basic way to treat the metabolic syndrome.
