2013 Was Good For the Mediterranean Diet

Larry Huston, a long-time writer on things cardiologic, notes that:

It was a good year for the Mediterranean Diet. The PREDIMED study provided the best supporting evidence yet, though it seems unlikely if anyone will ever be able to sort out the specific role of the individual components of the Mediterranean diet, which include wine, olive oil, nuts, fish, and, of course, less tangible things like sunshine and lifestyle. The nuts component received a separate boost from the publication of an influential paper in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Actually, Harvard and U. of Athens researchers have an idea which components of the Mediterranean diet prolong life.
