If we didn’t quite believe that the Mediterranean diet was one of the best for heart health – not to mention a slew of other areas of health, and longevity – a newstudy offers even more evidence. People in Greece who adhered strongly to the diet had almost half the risk of developing heart disease in the next decade than people who didn’t stick to it as well. So why aren’t more people converting, given the amount of convincing research on it? Another study, also to be presented at the American College of Cardiology conference, suggests that many doctors don’t know exactly how to recommend it – for instance, they may not know a fatty fish from a non-fatty fish. That might be part of the problem, but it also might just be a symptom of the larger one.
