Seaweed-rich diet shown to reduce breast cancer in Japanese women
On this blog, we aren't shy of the fact that seaweed is one of the healthiest additions anyone could make to their diet — and for good reason! People all over the world are always looking for the newest fad to improve their nutrition and cut back on unhealthy eating habits when the simplest solution is to simply eat seaweed! This natural super food is chock full of essential fatty acids, amino acids and phenols that can reinforce better health.
"Seaweed is one of the healthiest foods on our planet, loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are uniquely found in the sea and not on land," writes The Fiji Times in a profile examining the benefits of seaweed for health. "Seaweed is rich in iodine and sodium alginate, both of which are effective in protecting our body from disease and a vital part of a healthy diet."
As the news publication discusses, this "medicine from the sea" not only improves health and serves as a salt replacement, but also boasts a number of disease-fighting properties too. One particularly startling connection was made when it was discovered that Japanese women who indulge in seaweed-rich diets — taking in 25 times as much iodine as non-Japanese women — were found to have breast cancer rates approximately one-third lower than those in American women.
While further research still needs to be done on these and similar connections, the fact remains that seaweed can make for an essential part of a long and healthy life.
