Much has been made of how good is the Mediterranean diet for our health, but do you really know its exact benefits? Discover it with us!
When we talk about the Mediterranean diet, we mean the food shared by the different countries that are in the strip washed by the Mediterranean Sea, hence its name. They share climate, cultivation types and similar eating habits. But did you know that the Mediterranean diet was first analyzed by the Government of Greece in 1948? In fact, they were the ones who gave them its name.
Some time later, in 1958, in the so-called “Study of seven countries” different diets were compared. In addition, other habits such as lifestyle and coronary heart disease rates were analyzed. And also, it was concluded that the Mediterranean diet was one of the healthiest in the world.
