Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara, 105, laid the first few bricks of longevity in Japan. He was a staunch believer in increasing life expectancy by following simple tricks.
The centenarian doctor died recently on July, 18, after creating many advancements in the field of medicine. The cause of his death is reported to be respiratory failure. In 1945, he treated the victims of World war II and in 1954, he came up with the idea of a comprehensive annual physical check-up in Japan.
Hinohara was head of five foundations and president of St Luke’s International Hospital in Tokyo. He never defied his services, either it’s firebombing or plane hijacks.
Born in 1911, Dr. Hinohara is the author of 75 books. His work largely circled around good mental and physical health. He didn’t quit practicing medicine even a couple of days before his death.
