Evidence Of Health Benefits Of Mediterranean Diet Continues To Accumulate

March 27, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Greek researchers who analyzed data pooled from 19 clinical studies and 162,000 participants found that adherence to the Mediterranean diet was associated with a 21 percent reduced risk of diabetes when compared to control dietary groups. The effect was especially notable among people at high risk for cardiovascular disease: they were 27 percent less likely to develop diabetes. A Mediterranean diet generally features fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, fish, olive oil and even small amounts of red wine.
