"People who closely follow a Mediterranean diet - rich in vegetables, grains and olive oil - live longer than those who don't," says new research involving 22,000 people. "Working with a 10-point scale that gauged adherence to the diet, researchers found that an increase of two points on the scale led to a 25 percent reduction in overall death rates. It also led to a 33 percent reduction in deaths from coronary heart disease, and a 24 percent reduction in deaths from cancer." Those are huge percentages, folks. I know, there's fish in it, but you can replace those Omega-3s with flax and not get the radiation (see below) or mercury.
