The Mediterranean Diet Is Even More Amazing Than Previously Believed

By MindBodyGreen

We already knew that a Mediterranean diet was good for us,
but a new study reported in today's New York Times sheds
some more light on this:

"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,
a large and rigorous new study found."

The study, conducted over a five-year period in Spain,
yielded such overwhelmingly conclusive results that
researchers stopped the experiment early, thinking
that it was unethical to continue, according to
the Times.

Are you eating a Mediterranean diet?

Why or why not?
