Study links Greek diet to longer life

“Island of Crete residents have the lowest heart disease and cancer rates of all seven countries in the study, including Italy, a 2001 paper asserts.

The traditional diet in Greece is different from the traditional diet in France is different from the traditional diet in Spain. And while all of these diets are considered Mediterranean, it stands to reason that they don’t all provide equal health benefits.

So which Mediterranean diet is best?

Dr. Artemis Simopoulos, president of the nonprofit Center for Genetics, Nutrition and Health in Washington, D.C., thinks it’s the one followed in Greece before 1960.”

  1. Couldn’t agree more with you,BillyBites. That’s exactly why I started this blog. To show the right, basic, food ingredients to these characteristic Greek dishes. Everyone’s taste is unique, so we all change one or two ingredients and that’s ok. But to prepare a national dish, you must respect its key ingredients, otherwise it will be something else. Thanks for following.
