Abstract

In Japan, brown seaweeds such as kombu, wakame, and mozuku have been a mainstay of the traditional diet for several thousand years. The prefecture of Okinawa, whose inhabitants enjoy some of the highest life expectancies in Japan, also happens to have one of the highest per capita consumption rates of kombu (1 g per person per day). In contrast, the average per capita consumption rate of kombu in Japan is approximately 0.5 g per day. On Okinawa, the death rate from cancer is the lowest of all the prefectures in Japan. The longevity and low cancer rates may be caused in part by a substance called fucoidan.
