Two Studies on the Mediterranean Diet
Firstly, in a study of over 10,000 men by the University of Las Palmas in Spain, eating a Mediterranean diet can cut your risk of depression by 30 per cent. And depression is known to heighten cancer risks.
In Chris Woollams´ book ´The Rainbow Diet´ and how it can help you beat cancer´, I go through the various benefits of the relevant foods. The Spanish researchers suggested there were 9 points of importance to your health: The frequency of consuming mono-unsaturated fatty acids; moderate intake of alcohol, low intake of dairy products; low intake of meat; high intake of fruit and nuts; cereals; vegetables and fish.
The diet is known to keep the arteries and the heart healthy, it helps fight inflammation, it promotes repair and has a number of potent cancer killers in it. It has also been used to reduce asthma and fight Alzheimer´s. (Click here to read Chris Woollams´ book, The Rainbow Diet)
In a second study, by researchers from the Second University of Naples, Italy, and Warwick Medical School in Coventry, England (Annals of Internal Medicine) newly diagnosed type-2 diabetes patients were divided into a group who continued with a low fat diet, one who used a ´Doctor recommended diet, and a third group who were given the Rainbow Mediterranean Diet. The latter group went significantly longer before needing any drugs and those needing drugs was half the level of the ´normal doctor diet´ diet group. Their conclusion was that ´The diet is better than the doctors´ recommendations for type-2 diabetes.´
