New Research on the Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean Diet is often touted as one of the world’s healthiest and most nutritious diets. Researchers recently released the results from a new study of the Mediterranean Diet.

“A new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine finds that women who followed this pattern of eating in their 50s were about 40 percent more likely to reach the later decades without developing chronic diseases and memory or physical problems, compared to women who didn’t eat as well.”

The study’s methodology involved tracking more than 10,000 women’s diets over 15 years, using surveys to gather data.

Definitions of a “Mediterranean Diet” have been contested, however.

NPR reports on the new research on the Mediterranean Diet.
