Korean Namul, the Centerpiece of Vegetarian Diet
Namul, the basis of Korean cuisine

Edible plants grow in mountains and fields, receiving energy from the earth and withstanding seasonal changes. A typical Korean meal is unimaginable without namul. Vegetarian dishes, including kimchi, are the basics of Korean cuisine. About 70 percent of the Korean territory is covered with mountains. Large-scale cattle-farming is impossible because of the lack of grasslands. That's why Koreans know how to make the best use of plants growing in mountains and fields.

Plants produce special biochemicals to protect themselves from insects and bacteria. These substances play an important role. One of the main causes of cancer and aging is free radicals. Plant phytochemcials are excellent at removing free radicals from the body. Professor Ham Seung-shi, who studies edible plants, refused to undergo chemotherapy when he was diagnosed with stomach cancer. He cured his disease by eating namul.
