Research studies have proved the value and highlighted the benefits of the Cretan diet in terms of life expectancy and lower probabilities of health problems such as coronary disease.
(Menotti et al. 1999)
"After a mean follow-up period of 27 mo, recurrent myocardial infarction, all cardiovascular events, and cardiac and total death were significantly decreased by > 70% in the group consuming the Mediterranean diet"
"It appears that the favorable life expectancy of the Cretans could be largely due to their diet"
