The Mediterranean diet is a nutritional model inspired by the traditional dietary patterns of three European countries and one African country: Italy, Greece, Spain and Morocco. In 2010 it was included in the World Cultural Heritage ‘by UNESCO.
The father of the Mediterranean diet was Dr. Lorenzo Piroddi (Genoa 1911-1999), who was the first to make a connection between nutrition and metabolic diseases, such as diabetes, obesity and bulimia.
The Mediterranean diet has a high consumption of bread, fruits, vegetables, herbs, cereals, olive oil, fish and wine and is based on a paradox: people living in Mediterranean countries consume fairly high amounts of fat but the use of olive oil, animal fats compensate. Olive oil seems to lower the levels of cholesterol in the blood is, it is also argued, that the moderate consumption of wine during meals (one glass per meal), is another protective factor because of the antioxidants present in it.
According to various studies, carried out by famous American scientists, the Mediterranean diet decreases the mortality rate due to coronary artery disease by more than 50%. According to these studies, the positive diet has protective effects on the brain, helping to prevent cognitive decline. Not only that, the Mediterranean diet reduces the chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Healthy eating is also good for you.
