    No it is only a small group who do. It is hereditary. You find it in small groups world wide. Some blame it on just the right combination of inbreeding.

    It is attributed to the fact that they do not overeat, and their meals are at least 50% vegetables. Also, that they eat a lot of fiber and their protein tends to be mostly seafood or tofu, with some chicken ... little "fatty meats" (pork, beef).
