To group all races of Asians as one is to overgeneralize. Asian races are more diverse than the Caucasians, i.e. Indians differ from the Chinese in most respects.
While I beleive that Asians are living the life full of culture and tradition, I do beleive that Westerns promotes a better healthy lifestyle. Bottom line is.. take what's good as an example and adapt it into our life, and live healty and peacefully.
