Mediterranean diet put to the test

Two studies both concur that a Mediterranean diet produces longer life spans and fewer health problems. The results showed that people who lived on a diet high in olive oil, fruit, vegetables, fish and beans as well as a few glasses of wine had lived longer especially if they led an active lifestyle as well. Findings also show that this diet was more beneficial than a low fat diet for people at risk of developing heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.
