My name is Taka. I am the owner of TAKA, Japanese restaurant in Buckhead, Atlanta, USA.
I opened this small place in 2002.
Restaurant business is drama without script. It is fun and stress. But the word of "Thank you. It was delicious." is everything. It is encouragement, reward, vitamin for tomorrow. I write my everyday's drama here.
Thanks for all.

Researchers find exercise lowers death risk of diabetes
While doctors have long recommended exercise to help
prevent diabetes, researchers have now found that daily brisk physical activity
lowers the mortality rates of patients who have been diagnosed with type 2
diabetes, the most common form in Japan.
group under the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare found that diabetes
patients who exercised regularly had mortality rates about 40 percent lower
than those who did not.
with dietary guidance and medicine, exercise has not been recommended as
eagerly by doctors treating diabetes," said Hirohito Sone, a professor of
medicine at Niigata University, who was part of the research group. "There
is a need to provide support for exercise by patients."
The results of
the research will be published in a European journal.
group distributed questionnaires to about 1,700 diabetes patients between the
ages of 40 and 69. The questionnaire included items about exercise habits.
Those individuals were also tracked for eight years of medical treatment.
found that the group of individuals who exercised regularly to the equivalent
of at least 30 minutes a day of walking at a brisk pace had mortality rates
about 40 percent lower than the group of individuals who exercised very little.
The incidence of strokes also decreased by a similar level.
in blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels due to regular exercise
is believed to be the cause for the difference in mortality rates.
taken by the ministry in 2007 found there were about 8.9 million people in
Japan strongly suspected of having type 2 diabetes, accounting for 90 percent
of all diabetes cases.
Type 2 diabetes
often arises from overeating and a lack of exercise. That leads to a decrease
in the secretion of hormones and insulin, which lower blood sugar levels or
makes them less effective in carrying out that task. If type 2 diabetes is left
untreated, it can lead to blindness, strokes or heart disease.
