Implications from and for food cultures for cardiovascular diseases: Japanese food, particularly Okinawan diets

Short Title: 
Implications from and for food cultures for cardiovascular diseases
Abstract: 

Okinawans, who have a different ethnicity and food cultural history to other Japanese nationals, and an exceptional longevity have been studied at home and as migrant groups in Hawaii and Brazil. Biomarkers for fish and soy intake and intervention studies indicate that these foods, along with seaweed and green vegetables are candidates for chronic non-communicable disease prevention.
