Mediterranean Diet - Scientifically Proven Longevity Booster
Mediterranean diet was first known for its beneficial health effects by the 17th century (1614), when Giorgio Castelvetro, an exiled Italian in UK, was already spreading the word about the benefits of the Mediterranean food habits.
The Seven Countries Study was the first to create great interest in the Mediterranean diet in the 1980s when it reported that the 15-year mortality rate from Cardiovascular Disease in Southern Europe was 50% lower than that of Northern Europe or the United States.
A contemporary long term study, titled “Dietary Patterns that Decrease Cardiovascular Disease and Increas Longevity” found that subjects following the Mediterranean-style diet had a markedly lower prevalence of cardiac death and decreased hospitalizations.
