Study Links Mediterranean Diet To Improved Mental, Physical Health

May 29, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A study by Spanish researchers has linked the Mediterranean diet – fruit, vegetables, pulses (beans, peas, chickpeas and lentils etc.), fish, olive oil and nuts – to improved mental and physical health. Scientists analyzed the influence of the Mediterranean diet on the quality of life of a sample of more than 11,000 university students over four years. Dietary intake data was taken at the beginning and measured after four years. Those who stuck more to the Mediterranean diet scored higher on the quality of life questionnaire in terms of physical and mental well-being. The link was even stronger in terms of physical quality of life.
