6 Reasons Why The Japanese Aren't Having Babies


6 Reasons Why The Japanese Aren't Having Babies

The island country with the world’s third-longest life expectancy has an increasing aging population, with the median age being 47 years and more than 50,000 people over 100. On the other hand, as far as the younger natives are concerned, things are looking grim for Japan, the problem being a steady decline in the number of babies born each year.

Japan's Population Problem

Whatever you need a website for, create yours today with Wix:

Childbearing seems to be in the decrease globally in the developed world. While we have niche dating apps on our cell phones to net a potential date and perhaps embark on a relationship, younger generations tend to miss out on the next steps of marriage and having babies. Thus many nations are recording lower birth-rate figures, and nowhere is this more noticeable than in Japan. But is it just the lack of marriages that is responsible for the drop of 1 million people in Japan’s population statistics? Or are other factors at play? why is Japan’s population decreasing?

8 Japanese Parenting Rules All Kids Need

All kids are a joy to be around, but Japanese children are some of the most polite, friendly, and well-behaved you’ll ever meet. They don’t let their feelings run wild. In Japan, you’ll rarely meet a child who’s crying in the supermarket (though there are always exceptions to the rule).

Bright Side thinks that we ought to learn some upbringing tricks from Japanese parents. So we’ve collected the main principles of raising children in the Land of the Rising Sun. So if your parenting rules aren’t doing the trick, maybe give these tips a try! If it works for people in Japan, it might just work for you!

Storytelling is a top priority 0:46
The mother-child bond is very close 1:35
Rules are more important than punishment 2:23
The community is involved in parenting 3:02
The child’s nutrition is spot on 3:56
Children must think of others 4:54
Children are highly independent 5:38
Parents discipline their children in private 6:21

- Japanese parents take special care into passing on their traditions and telling their kids about their country's history through fairy tales.
- Japanese mothers have a belief that children are initially disconnected from parents and that they need to become dependent on the mother through physical touch.
- Kids in Japan are often involved in sports teams, creative groups, and any club or gathering that will teach them to cooperate with others and follow pre-set guidelines.
- Japanese kids are taught to always respect and honor their grandparents and all elders. Even elders who are strangers to the children are considered trustworthy and must be respected!
- In Japan, children always have a balanced meal. Their parents prepare a nutritional lunch that usually includes some rice, vegetables, soup, and lean meat.
- From a very early age, parents in Japan teach their children to think of others before they speak or act, so it’s very uncommon to see a child crying uncontrollably or being aggressive in public.
- In Japan, kids as young as seven years old get to travel to school by themselves. The Japanese get away with this because they have a phenomenal public transport system and one of the lowest crime rates in the world.
- Many parents discipline their kids in the presence of others, but Japanese parents tend to do it behind doors and away from prying eyes.

Constipation | How To Get Rid Of Constipation | Constipation Relief (2019)

Constipation Remedies. This video is on relief, remedies, symptoms, laxatives, cure, medicines and tablets to get rid of constipation.

1 in 7 adults are affected by constipation at any one time. Remember we're all different so we have different toilet habits but generally speaking constipation is either going to the toilet less often than usually to empty the bowels or passing hard or painful stools. In this video we're going to look at home remedies and laxatives for constipation relief in adults. Hope my tips help!

Constipation in adults has many possible causes. Sometimes there is no obvious reason.

The most common causes include:

• Not eating enough fibre – such as fruit, vegetables and cereals
• Not drinking enough fluids
• Not exercising or being less active
• Often ignoring the urge to go to the toilet
• Changing your diet or daily routine
• Stress, anxiety or depression
• A side effect of medication

Constipation is also common during pregnancy and for 6 weeks after giving birth. PLEASE NOTE: Laxatives are not recommended in pregnancy unless prescribed or recommended by your healthcare professional.

In much rarer cases, constipation may be caused by a medical condition.

• A really easy way to help reduce straining when empty your bowels is by raising your feet by resting them on a stool while your sat on the toilet and if possible raise your knees above your hips. This straightens out where the colon and rectum join and allows your stool to pass more easily. Also give yourself plenty of time and don’t delay if you feel the urge.

• Make your stools softer and easier to pass by, drinking plenty of water so aim for 6-8 glasses a day and increasing the fibre in your diet so have more fruit, vegetables and oats. NHS Link to increasing fibre in diet:

• Increase your activity so go for a walk do more exercise and this will lower the time it takes food to move through the large intestine. So you’ll empty your bowels more regularly. The longer your stools stay in the large intestine the more water is absorbed from the stool which leaves you with dry stools that are harder to pass.

Laxatives are a type of medicine that can help you empty your bowels if you're having trouble going to the toilet.

They're widely used to treat constipation if lifestyle changes haven't helped. It’s important to remember that laxatives should be stopped when your constipation improves.

Laxatives are available from pharmacies. Please speak to your pharmacist before purchasing so they can check its the right one for you and you’re suitable and safe to take them. As always with all medication always read the information leaflet. Certain medication can also cause constipation so let your pharmacist know what you're taking.

Laxatives should only be used for a short period and are not recommended for children and in pregnancy unless prescribed, here are the different laxatives discussed in the video.

Bulk forming laxatives: Such as ispaghula husk.

Osmotic laxatives: Such as lactulose and macrogol.

Stimulant laxatives: Such as bisacodyl, senna and sodium picosulfate.

Stool softener laxatives: Such as docusate sodium and glycerol.

• You are not improving with treatment
• You are regularly constipated and it lasts a long time
• You are bloated and it lasts a long time
• You have blood in your poo
• You have unexpectedly lost weight
• You feel very tired all the time

Speak to the GP before you stop taking any prescribed medication.

Japan Baby Boom: City's policies turn around population decline

Japan is facing a growing demographic crisis. Its population is shrinking, and ageing so rapidly that one in five people are now 70 or older. The economy is slowing down as the number of pensioners rise and the working-age population falls, which means there are also fewer taxpayers. Mayu Yoshida reports went to a city in the east that's bucking the population trend.

Have you ever noticed that warning about raw or undercooked seafood at the bottom of restaurant menus? Ever wondered why it’s there? Because fish carry a ton of parasites, and if they aren’t prepared correctly then those parasites can make it into your body. But it turns out, this fishy intersection with the wild world of parasites can teach us a lot about how these moochers help keep ecosystems healthy, and why we should protect them.

7 Things That Can Change Your Eye Color

Can you change your eye color? No matter whether you have brown or blue eyes, you’ve probably been wondering how you’d look with green eyes, for example. You might assume that the color of your eyes is something you have no control over and that it’s all genetic. But have you ever wondered why your eyes look a bit lighter on a sunny day? Or why the eyes of people who are in a rage seem to go dark all of a sudden?

But very few of us know that there are a number of factors including food and emotions that can change the color of our irises. Yep, your eye color can change depending not only on the lighting or your mood! We put together some interesting facts about how and why a person can change the color of their eyes.

Melanin and aging 0:53
An injury 2:23
Your mood 3:22
Raw food diet and detoxing 4:25
Make-up and clothing 6:14
Laser lightening of the eye color 7:18
Colored contact lenses 8:09

Music by Epidemic Sound

- The eye color of babies from 3 to 18 months old can become darker if the number of melanocytes in their irises increases. Depending on how much more melanin develops, a blue-eyed baby can end up with green, hazel, or brown eyes.
- According to Dr. Ivan Schwab, a clinical spokesman for the American Academy of Ophthalmology, head or eye trauma can result in a condition called heterochromia, which is when a person’s eyes have two different colors.
- The pigments in your iris compress or spread apart, making them darker or lighter, when the size of your pupil changes. Your pupils, in turn, can get bigger or smaller depending on your emotional state.
- There’s a theory in alternative medicine that the color of the irises and the health of the internal organs are connected. It’s called iridology. However, there isn’t a lot of scientific proof backing it up, so it still needs further research.
- When it comes to bringing out certain pigments in your eyes, makeup and clothing can truly work miracles.
- Innovative eye color correcting laser surgery doesn’t come with so much risk. The procedure involves using a laser to destroy melanin cells in the irises, making them appear lighter.
- Of course, the quickest way to change your eye color is to pop in some colored or decorative lenses! But which one is right for you?

6 Reasons Why We Wont Get A Kardashian Christmas Card This Year

Subscribe to our channel:

It’s that time of year again, time for the Kardashian Christmas card! What? It might not happen? Kim Kardashian West spoke to Refinery29 and divulged why we may not get a classic card we always expect. Sure, the 2017 Christmas card fiasco did lead to some major drama and the infamous “least interesting” line from “KUWTK”. But can’t we still have our 2018 card despite the Khloe and Kim feud. Even when Bruce transitioned to Caitlyn Jenner, we still got a card, so we can’t believe the only reason they aren’t doing one is because they “forgot.” And let’s be real, since when did Kris Jenner forget anything? From Kourtney to Kylie to Scott and even Lamar, the Christmas card drama lives on...and we’ll tell you why this holiday season, we may not get to see ring in Christmas Eve with the Kardashian-Jenner-West’s. Watch TheTalko as we tell you why exactly we won’t get the card and how a Christmas miracle may actually let us see one on Christmas eve!

Immigrants could be the answer to Japan’s population crisis

Japan's government recently passed a law that will give work visas to hundreds of thousands of low-skilled foreign workers as it tries to replenish a rapidly shrinking workforce. The country, which has historically seen itself as culturally and ethnically homogenous, has a deeply ambivalent attitude toward immigration, and the new law is drawing its fair share of controversy. Opponents say it's too vague. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe insists the workers who enter Japan under the new law will be there only temporarily, sparking concerns it risks making immigrant workers second class citizens. Regardless,  it is a major immigration overhaul in all but name, say observers.

Japan - The Fading Economy

Japan became the first of the modern Asian countries to experience massive sustained economic growth. Japan had a lot going for it after the end of the war, it was able to rebuild with the help of the allies and go through its own modern industrial revolution. In the 1960’s japan was growing at a rate of 10% a year which for a national economy was unheard of at the time, this economic growth continued and japan was able to ride the wave of globalisation as the worlds low cost manufacturer. Japan developed a huge car industry, it was at the forefront of consumer electronics and was working meticulously to make sure that this new found wealth was being invested wisely into infrastructure like high speed rail, airports and metro systems that would make their economy even more efficient.

At its peak there was so much wealth in japan that the real estate market of Tokyo had some pretty crazy anomalies. In the late 80’s it was estimated that the imperial palace covering an area of 3.4 square kilometres in central Tokyo had a real estate land value greater than all of the real estate in California. Of course, the imperial palace was never for sale and this was based of the cost per square feet in the area but it still should give a good idea of just how much money was washing around in Japan.

In this video we will look at how this all went so wrong and what it can tell us about countries that are today where japan was 40 years ago.
