The Mediterranean diet has many health benefits. Wondering researchers have spent years trying to discover why. Although many regions have adopted a much more westernized diet habit which has resulted in a mounting obesity issue, communities that still follow the traditional Mediterranean diet continue to experience health which is the envy of the western world.
There has been a great deal of research done on the Mediterranean diet. It has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, fat build up in the arteries, obesity, high blood pressure, and glucose intolerance. And of course it has been shown to drastically slow down the process of aging. It really isn’t a big surprise that this diet has such strong ties to good health. After all it relies very little on meat and other saturated fats, such as butter, which are responsible for raising blood cholesterol and promoting the development of some types of cancers.
