Mediterranean Food Benefits More To Rich: Study
High-quality food does not come cheap and the so-called Mediterranean diet is for the rich people, finds a recent survey, report of which is published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
The Mediterranean diet includes mostly fruits, vegetables, carbs, grains and non-meat proteins along with a moderate amount of seafood as well as dairy products. It is said people from the Mediterranean region used to eat such food traditionally and the primary benefit is a reduced risk of heart disease.
The latest study was conducted by a team of Italian researchers from the Mediterranean Neurological Institute (I.R.C.C.S. Neuromed) and since 2005 they have been working on the Moli-sani Study, which is the administering questionnaires and performing health tests on about 18,000 people of both sexes from southern Italy.
The study found those who were wealthier and better-educated in the team of subjects experienced more reduced cardiovascular risk compared to others. This means the participants enjoyed different benefits even though they ate almost same amount of the appropriate foods.
Head of the Laboratory of Nutritional and Molecular Epidemiology at the institute, Licia lacoviello, said quantity and frequency of food intake are equally important with quality of foods one consumes.
The researchers found the rich participants consumed a wider variety of the vegetables and fruits, and they even opted for such foods which had more polyphenols and antioxidents.http://www.dailynewsz.com/mediterranean-food-benefits-more-to-rich-study/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Mediterranean-Food-Benefits-More-To-Rich-Study.jpghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Mediterranean-Food-Benefits-More-To-Rich-Study-300x300.jpgHealthmediterranean diet,study
