Health And Nutrition / Mediterranean diet
The Mediterranean diet has become famous worldwide for its beneficial nutritional attributes. The fundamental element of this diet is olive oil. Delicious and healthy, olive oil, with its therapeutic attributes, has been known since the ancient Hellenic period of Hippocrates, to contribute greatly to the longevity of people who use it daily. This has also been proven by contemporary scientific research.
Since the 1960's, doctors and officers of the Public Health Departments, both in Europe and the United States, started to examine the Mediterranean diet and the possible factors that contribute to the longevity and better health of the Mediterranean nations compared to that of the people of Northern European countries.
This above interest, in the Mediterranean diet originated from the empirical view that the inhabitants of the island of Crete presented very low percentages in chronic diseases, and a global longevity record.
In January 1993, a team of university executives and researchers from the United States examined the findings of a series of epidemiological studies, which described the nutritional traditions from the regions around the Mediterranean Sea. The result was the creation of the famous Mediterranean Diet Pyramid.
The traditional Mediterranean Diet is based on a diversified menu composed of the key fruit, vegetables, grains, beans, peanuts, seeds while its fundamental element is olive oil.
