Earlier today someone out of blue said to a friend and me, (paraspeaking) "You know you Chinese* guys are, like, vampires?You guys look {censored} young for your age."

This created a discussion about HK actor/singer Aaron Kwok (in his 40s, but look 20) and why most East Asians tend to look 'young' for their age.

It's genetics, obviously, but can anyone offer an explanation in layman's terms?


*Chinese = A lot of people around here tend to refer East Asians as 'Chinese'.

I think it's seaweed. Any culture that eats seaweed on a regular basis retains their youthful look.

albinos are the vampires for pretty much the same reasons dude, it's good to have stereotypes taken from us,(we have so many)

Eating sea food has that effect. People in the other continents tend to have bad habits... eating fastfood (as said before) and stuff like that. That's why they live longer; better food habits.

i did a little research on this and it really doesn't have much (if anything) to do with genetics - it's about diet first and foremost. physical activity and a general positive attitude also play a large part. interestingly, as asians are adopting our american bad habits they're developing the same problems. its also not just looking younger, it's about being much longer lived (and the quality of those years being high too).

the irony is as the adapt our western habits they are getting all of our health problems.
