Abstract

We surveyed 172 femeles in a mountain village named Yachiho-Mura in Nagano-Ken. Prof. TUBAKI' Kozi' the Head of our Department found that in mountain villages the females live shorter than the males . He supposes the main reason of this fact is chronic accumulation of fatigue. From this idea we tested village women by interview method. The survey was done on the acute fatigue compleints (physical, mental and neurosensory complaints), Farmers Symptom-Complex or Nofusho and on the degree of aging process by the method of Japan Industrical Research Committee on Fatigue." Scores obtained are shown in Table 5 and Fig. 2. As shown in them females in hilly parts and intermediate parts got somewhat higher marks than the flat parts, that is they feel more fatigue than the flat part females. This means that they do daily works heavier than the lower plain part women.
