Two new studies confirm the health benefits of eating the
Mediterranean way.

In a study in today's Journal of the American Medical Association,
mortality rates were 65% lower among elderly people who combined a
so-called Mediterranean diet with 30 minutes of daily exercise,
moderate drinking and no tobacco use.

Although experts say there is no single Mediterranean diet, doctors
say cuisines from these regions favor olive oil rather than butter and
include lots of legumes, nuts, seeds, grains, fish, vegetables and
potatoes but little meat and dairy.

The study was conducted from 1988 to 2000 and led by researchers at
Wageningen University in the Netherlands and other European
universities. More than 2,300 healthy people ages 70 to 90 answered
questions about their eating habits and activities. Researchers noted
that the study suggests a strong association between healthy habits
and longer life but offers no proof.

In a separate study in the same journal, researchers from the Second
University of Naples in Italy found that Mediterranean-style diets
helped patients with "metabolic syndrome," which increases the risk of
heart disease and diabetes and affects 1 in 4 American adults.

People with the syndrome are fat around the middle, have high blood
pressure and cholesterol deposits in their arteries, and do not
properly process glucose. After two years, 44% of those on the
Mediterranean diet still had features of metabolic syndrome, compared
with 86% of others.

This research confirms the results of earlier studies, experts say. A
previous study of heart-attack survivors showed that the mortality
rate was 70% lower among those who followed a prescribed Mediterranean
diet compared with people on a low-fat diet.

"The Mediterranean experience makes it clear that healthy eating is
completely consistent with wonderful eating," says Walter Willett,
chairman of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Yet getting more Americans to adopt healthy living will be a
challenge, says Dario Giugliano, an author of the metabolic syndrome
study. Experts say only 1 in 5 Americans eat the recommended five to
nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day.

65% lower than what? Than those people who didn't exercise, drank like
fishes and smoked like chimneys? This says nothing about diet.

Why are so many of these crossposted?

It doesn't matter if we start eating like (some type of) Mediterranean or
not.
Could just as well be Chinese, Masai, or any other traditional diet of whole
nutritious foods. The important thing is to QUIT EATING LIKE AN AMERICAN
(fast food, processed food, sugar, trans fat, no nutrients, empty calories,
too many
carbs, etc...).

I think there may be some basis in a Med diet, but sending this to
"lowfat" and "lowcarb" is going to do nothing but cause flamewars.

Mediteranean covers quite a variety. It makes your post meaningless.

Little dairy? Really? Then what do the mediterraneans do with all
the cheese they make? Export it? Feed it to the dogs?

The best example of Mediterranean diet is the traditional Cretan diet, which
contains relatively low amount of dairy products. Only fermented dairy
products, feta cheese and yoghurt made of goat or sheep milk are used. And
yes, Mediterranean countries do export cheese.
