(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) The Mediterranean diet, rich in fruits, vegetables and fish has earned the appreciation of the scientific community several times for its beneficial qualities. A recent survey published in Archives of Internal Medicine proves again that the diet is related to protection against cancer and cardiovascular diseases. A Greek scientist, Panagiota N. Mitrou from the University of Cambridge was among the scientists to examine the impact of the Mediterranean Dietary Pattern on all-cause mortality in a US population. The results proved that the primal assumption was correct and that the diet was indeed associated with reduced mortality. Culinary Greece: www.kerasma.gr; www.gourmed.gr; www.epikouria.com
