In the past, Okinawans where known to have long lives, This was assumed to be partially from their diet ; sweet potato instead of potato, less rice and more legumes, fish and seafood from (then) clean ocean currents, high intake of veggies and tumeric and lots of fruit and seaweed and a bit of bitter melon daily.
