Grandmother on Feeding Tube Symbolizes Aging Japan

July 24 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Kanoko Matsuyama reports from Tokyo about her grandmother, one of a quarter of a million elderly Japanese who are being kept alive by feeding tube. Life expectancy in Japan is the longest in the world. When it comes to "quality of death," Japan doesn’t score so well. In 2010, the Economist Intelligence Unit ranked 40 developed and developing countries based on criteria such as end-of-life cost and care and, more broadly, how well societies faced issues of death. Japan ranked 23rd. (Source: Bloomberg)
