Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean Diet is certainly healthier than the Standard American Diet (SAD). Studies do document a reduction in the food borne diseases like cancer, diabetes, autoimmune disease and heart disease that are caused by SAD. Dr. Greger points out that the problem with the studies that support the Mediterranean Diet are generally of people who live healthier. So is it the food or the lifestyle?

The compelling evidence for more than 100 years is that a whole food plant-based lifestyle is the healthiest way to eat and live. Dr. Esselstyn at the Cleveland Clinic has shown a 99% reduction in heart disease with plant-based food. Seems to me to be a no-brainer. But, most Americans are would rather eat the foods that make them fat and sick.

The unhealthy food cravings are gone.

Mediterranean Diet

“Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and colleagues at the Cleveland Clinic recently published a case series of 198 consecutive patients with cardiovascular disease counseled to switch to a diet composed entirely of whole plant foods. Of the 198, 177 stuck to the diet, whereas the other 21 fell off the wagon, setting up kind of a natural experiment.

What happened to the 21? This was such a sick group of patients that more than half suffered from a fatal heart attack, or needed angioplasty, or a heart transplant. In that same time period of about four years, of the 177 who stuck to the plant-based diet only one had a major event as a result of worsening disease. Not half, but less than 1%.

As Dean Ornish noted in his response to the latest Mediterranean trial, ‘A Mediterranean diet is better than what most people are consuming; even better may be a diet based on whole foods and plants.'”
