Seoul... kimchi, an aid to weight control
Emma Banks of Fort St. John, B.C. heard Nissa Rhee's essay from South Korea on the apparent decline of kimchi, the traditional pickled vegetable combo, and writes...
Listened to your program about kimchi today. There was one important part of the picture missing. The beneficial bacteria present in kimchi! You may have heard about the beneficial bacteria in yogurt helps digestion, well the bacteria kimchi and sauerkraut do the same thing! Eating kimchi helps keep people at a healthy weight, which is very important due to the recent obesity crisis in north america. And if koreans are just eating more american foods and less kimchi, the same weight gain is likely to happen to them! Thanks.
