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.

Natural anti-cancer remedy

Obesity and adult diseases are on the rise across the world. As a solution, many experts point to vegetable-based diet. 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.

Okinawa is known for the longevity of its residents. Okinawans' secret to healthy and long living also lies in the traditional vegetable-based diet. Macrobiotics originated in Japan and has become popular in France, the U.S. and other western countries for promoting healthy eating. Vegetables are an essential part of a healthy diet.
