"Korean food healthiest in the world"

Hankyoreh reports of a research which would show that Korean staple diet is the healthiest in the world. Leaving aside the unnecessary Guinness book of World Records type of record-making, there should be few that dispute that Korean food is healthy - if eaten in a reasonable manner. Overeating, enormous amounts of grilled meat and alcohol are also Korean ingestion habits, and they should be of no help for the most of us. Despite of the potentially healthy diet, Korean do find their ways to die young.
연구팀은 “심장병 사망률이 미국은 인구 10만명당 130.1명, 그리스 79.8명인 데 반해 우리나라는 24.8명으로 아직 낮은 수준이지만 최근 상당한 증가율을 보이고 있다”며 그 이유로 서양식과 외식의 증가에 따른 동물성 지방 섭취 과다를 꼽았다.
But actually the main reason for this entry is that I have this photo of the recent Finnish-Korean meal of ours: kimchi soup, five-grain rice and kimchi.
