Mediterranean Diet Extends Longevity
Older people who want to live longer and healthier lives would benefit greatly by adhering to a Mediterranean diet, says a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (2004; 292 , 1433–39). European men and women ages 70–90 who followed a Mediterranean diet had a 23% lower risk of mortality during a 10-year follow-up period than those who ate a less healthy diet.
The Mediterranean diet emphasizes whole grains, fruits, veggies, legumes, olive oil and fish, and keeps red meat, sweets and eggs to a minimum.
