Research conducted in Japan, Sweden, Greece, and Australia all have a longer lifespan than other countries.
Many believe this comes down to their love of beans and legumes which are popular staples in those countries.
The Japanese consume soybeans and the Swedish eat brown beans and peas.
While Mediterranean people are fond of lentils, chickpeas, and white beans.
Therefore, it makes sense to attribute a longer and healthier life with eating more legumes.
