New Study shows Mediterranean Diet’s Health Benefits

My mom and dad have been telling me this for years. (Now that it’s in the New York Times, it has validity, of course.) In this house, olive oil is used for practically everything. They’ve said it’s the reason my grandparents lived long, healthy lives. It’s a part of almost every meal they eat.

A new study published on Monday in the New England Journal of Medicine says “about 30 percent of heart attacks, strokes and deaths from heart disease can be prevented in people at high risk if they switch to a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil, nuts, beans, fish, fruits and vegetables, and even drink wine with meals.” The results were so clear that the study ended early after five years. I guess I came to the right place to get healthy 🙂
