As reported in The Oregonian, September 17, 2008. The Mediterranean diet is famous for lowering your risk of heart disease. Recent studies have shown that it also provides a protection from cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. The Mediterranean diet is one rich in veggies, fruits, olive oil and fish. The British Medical Journal has come to the conclusion that those who follow a strict Mediterranean diet are:
9% less likely to die from heart attack, stoke or heart failure;
6% less likely to develop cancer
13% less likely to develop Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s.
