Mediterranean Diet, Lifestyle Factors, and 10-Year Mortality in Elderly
I have been a strong supporter of the Mediterranean Diet for a long time and it’s great when studies come out suggesting a FIFTY PERCENT decrease in mortality with persons following a Mediterranean-type diet. Remember that the Med diet comes out of a culture that had a low mortality from many chronic diseases. The national organizations (AHA, ADA…) come up with a diet plan they THINK will help. And don’t think that special interests and the almightly dollar do not play a major role.
