Thank you for all your support and continued patronage and thank you for checking out our second blog post. With the constant bombardment of award winning diet books and health cleanses being advertised today it can be difficult to find a reliable source on healthy eating. Well, science has spoken and has declared that A diet of minimally processed foods close to nature, such as the Mediterranean diet, is decisively associated with health promotion and disease prevention. Research done Dr. David Katz at Yale University’s Prevention Research Center shows that diets rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds support a wide range of health benefits. These benefits include a reduced risk of cancer and heart disease. The research goes on to state that:
The Mediterranean diet, which is additionally defined by high intake of fiber, moderate alcohol and meat intake, antioxidants, and polyphenols, does have favorable effects on heart disease, cancer risk, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and “is potentially associated with defense against neurodegenerative disease and preservation of cognitive function, reduced inflammation, and defense against asthma.”
