What are the main benefits of eating an East Asian diet?



I'm currently writing an article.
I'd be grateful if you could give me advantages and disadvantages of eating like an East Asian (Chinese, Japanese, Korean etc.)
Also, could you please give me your name and age? (you don't have to)

Thank you!


Compared to western cuisine, East Asians don't cook with dairy products nor butter or cream, and rely heavily on bean products rather than meat as a source of protein, therefore their diet has much less saturated fat. They eat more fish too, which also is considered better than eating red meat.

The only disadvantage is East Asians seldom eat fresh vegetables raw, they don't serve fresh salads, their vegetables are always either cooked or preserved which destroy the vitamins in them.
