Professor Sang-chul Park at College of Medicine suggested?that the typical everyday Korean menu consisting of rice and kimchi, among other things, promotes health and longevity.

He said that Vitamin B-12, commonly found in meat, is also contained in such traditional Korean food items as fermented soybean stew and sauce, kimchi and seaweed.

Accordingly, Koreans who don't consume much meat still don't show signs of Vitamin B-12 deficiencies, which can increase the risk of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, malignant anemia and dementia.

The paper was published on recent issue of Journal of Korean Nutrition Society.
