    Right on. You are so correct on this.

    I am not eating any "White" stuff including potato, bread, pasta, and rice. I only eat Ezekiel bread. Ezekiel bread is flourless bread and needs to be kept frozen. I gave up baked potato. Instead, I eat sweet potato that is high in fiber. I get most of my carb from fruits and veggies. I am eating 60g of protein a day. Eating right is a serious business. Also, too much carb produces an oxidative stress in our body that leads to many serious diseases. .

    BOJ Gov Kuroda urges firms to raise wages, spending

    http://www.whitehouse.gov/raise-the-wage

    In Economic Theory, the wage increase is seen as giving you a bigger pizza slice. It is based on Demand Economic Principals. More money in the Individual Sector will stimulate the Private Sector. .

    Yes, I think we are beginning to realize this.

    25 years ago, US MDs were all focusing on fat, now the same MDs are focusing on sugar in A1c..

    High A1c will damage brain, heart, kidney, eyes and nerves.

    I hate to say this, but I am not surprised.

    Japanese business ethics and quality are going down. Direct impact in global market is unpredictable.

    Entire "Japan Business Corporation" needs to be humble and goes back to square one to re-learn ethics and social responsibility former CEO Matsushita used to advocate to his students.

    Japan will not find any wrong doing in Takata because Japanese government is INTERDEPENDENT with Japanese business. Let us find Takata's wrong doing here in USA.

    To put it simply good research has established hundreds of side affects caused by this controversial drug

    Too early to conclude. There have been many articles in Journal of Medicine, the Statin may prevent cancer.

    You are what you eat.

    Generally speaking, obesity can be well prevented if you burn more than what you eat. Burning calories should be greater than what your calorie intake. Simple. Yes, some may not agree, but generally speaking this is still true. Not too complicated.

    I am very excited to learn that Japan is very serious about this. Da Vinci Sunnyvale is doing great, but Japan can do it better.

    Japanese medical teams have an important job to do.

    FACT

    US medical surgeons are not catching up with changes Da Vinci technology. You will be shocked to learn many complications in surgery are occurring everyday.

    US medical journals warnings surgeons precision skills and experience are the MUST. Otherwise, we are just developing a KILLING SURGERY MACHINE.

    Hope you can come up with CT scan without any radiation that is very needed today in medicine.

    Good luck to you, Japan!!

    globalwatcher: It evaporated long before that, and doesn't exist where the manufacturing and work are placed in Japan, either. Just look at TEPCO as a prime example -- the company's name is synonymous with 'failure' and management has no clue what's going on there either. It's been a societal problem here for quite some time.

    smith, I agree. TEPCO.......aw.... you have said enough. I can add Olympus, Sony, Sanyo, Suzuki,....many more. In medicine, no bang discoveries are happening in Japan. They are just following clinical trials of US.

    Why is this happening in Japan?

    Abe's support rate at lowest ever

    No surprise here.

    1)Japanese yen has been weakening and all imports including gas price have gone up.

    2)That drives up all food prices to go even higher for Japanese consumers and then they are paying higher sales tax from 5% to 8%.

    3)No National Nenkin pay raise ,unlike US cost adjusted SSI raise, for fixed income seniors while all national health care and long term care monthly premiums keep going up.

    4) Everyone, except Japanese politicians, is all squeezed financially from both ends. Do they want poor people to starve and die? The sky has a limit.. Politicians need to listen up their cries. I am speaking up on behalf of these poor Japanese.

    Election is all about political timing

    No, no political timing, pleeeeese.

    As long as Japanese politicians are focusing on a political trivial like this, Japan goes nowhere. People are all left out in democratic political process.

    Election should be by the people, for the people and by the people.

    Frustrated in despair.

    Japanese Quality evaporated when product manufacturing left Japan in the past decades. You can bring them back to Japan once again to improve quality.

    While yen is getting cheaper, some critical productions need to come back to Japan. Job, Job, Job. Good luck.

    This is due to a political apathy in Japan.

    People are giving up to participate in democratic process. They feel their votes will not change anything about their life.

    Sad.

    Spot on. The testimony by Japanese executives basically admitted liability today. He bankrupts and tanked Takata.

    Hearing does not bring these victims back to life. They are dead.

    Globalwatcher: (it's impossible to teach OUR value to NK as they do not know what humanity is all about.) Are you referring to the values of the US, like legal turture, no due procsess, indefinant detention, above the law CIA, and Ilegal drone assassinations?

    LOL, good try. No. There is a natural and universal law in humanity, The laws in each subculture are linked with this natural law. Question, is it okay to murder someone you do not like? If your answer is NO, then why it is NO?

    That is similar to how much Zetia lowers LDL.

    My friend has been placed on ZETIA but it did not help. He was taking both Lipitor and Zetia. I am interested in reading clinical trial findings.

    We, US, have been saying Japan needs to reform a "structural economic" for the past 3 decades.

    I am beginning to wonder if you guys are really serious to go for this major change. You know yourself that you can no longer kid yourself with lip service in rapidly changing global economy. It takes a strong leadership and vision to change. Japan is not a problem solver, shame.
