					Did you know that SWEET POTATO (Kamote in Korean) has more the nutrition and
health values than rice? Benefits of eating Kamote in place of rice. 1. Sweet potato is
more filling and cheaper.It also suppresses hunger and will not fill hungry easily. 2. It
grows easily in backyards with or without fertilizers. Local government executives
can provide their poor an alternative during bad season of growing rice. 3. Rice is
usually eaten with a dish. Sweet Potato tastes good and can be eaten by itself. Thus,it
is cost saving. 4. Rice cannot match the nutritional values of potato.In poorer country
like the Philippines , it has one of the high percentage of diabetics in the world.The
poor tends to eat more rice and that makes them vulnerable to diabetes,an ailment
known in developed countries as a rich man's disease. 5. Too much rice consumption
can make you sick, but sweet potato (kamote) can bring you to health and keep away
some health problems.These have been proved medically. A recent documentary in a
Korean TV network reveals as follow: - Sweet Potato (kamote) lowers hypertension,
bad cholesterol and even blood sugar. - It credits the sweet potato (kamote) as high
fiber and is one of the best foods that one can eat to prevent cancer The Americans as
well as the South Koreans which are both progressive nations have raised this Humble
staple food to a high level and many called Komote a "Super Food that Heals". After
this review Rice as an Asian staple food normally eaten with a dish will be taken more
seriously as a health concern.However,like most things it must be taken with
moderation and supplement with other foods like vegetables, fish meat and fruits to
create a healthy balance. Most of us eat our way to satisfy our stomach but not our
health. As health cost is ever increasing we have to be more discerning in how and
what we eat.
