RESEARCH ON SEA
Research has proven that the waters of our oceans contain
some of the richest known sources of mineral elements. Rain, erosion and
rivers bring all the valuable minerals of the earth into the ocean, and sea
plants absorb them.
These vast sources of nutrition may become much more
important than any of us now realize. Land degradation, pollution and over
farming has had a drastic effect on the soil. The fruits and vegetables we
eat derive their vitamins and minerals from the soil. If the food grown on
land can no longer give us all the nutrients that our bodies require and
need, we must turn to the rich vegetation of the ocean.
It has always been accepted in Japan that eating sea
vegetables like Nori and Wakame will prolong life. Now Japanese and other
scientists have demonstrated that such assumptions are not so far fetched,
given their proven ability to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, as well
as thinning the blood.
Kelp and other seaweeds have the ability to synthesize
sunlight into Vitamin D in their tissues, not unlike humans do within their
skin. These are the only plants that do this in any appreciable amount.
Seaweed as a staple item of diet has been used in Japan
and China since prehistoric times. In 600 BC, Sze Teu wrote in China, "Some
algae are a delicacy fit for the most honored guests, even for the King
himself." Some 21 species are used in everyday cookery in Japan, six of them
since the 8th century. Seaweed accounts for some 10% of the Japanese diet
and seaweed consumption reached an average of 3.5 kg per household in 1973,
a 20% increase in 10 years.
The oldest book in Iceland, dating back to 961 B.C.,
includes detailed regulations about coastal property rights to be respected
in the collection of sea vegetables.
There are records of sea plants being collected and eaten
by the coastal populations of Northern Europe, as well as by the people
around the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas.
The Native American Indians such as the Eskimos used sea
vegetation for eating and healing throughout their history.
