Soaking and fermentation can neutralize those, hence many societies still do it today.

They also eat less calories than normal Japanese people, are active daily, have enjoyable lifestyle, happy mindsets, don't get stressed out all day, enjoy strong social community ties/sense of purpose, lower exposure to toxins (in food, medications, environmental)..etc..etc.

I'm sure they also eat fresh fish....being on an island and all.
