History of the diet of red rice and gomasio

The story goes that when the nuclear impact of Hiroshima, in a humble hospital in the region with hardly anything to eat, patients had every day to eat small bowls with red rice and gomasio which doctors advised to chew for long periods for two reasons, one because there was not much food and another because it was known the benefits of long chewing. The surprise was that after a short time those affected by radiation recovered very well and in contrast to other hospitals that had more resources, the patients in this hospital were the healthiest.
