It seems a Mediterranean diet is good for you

In Mediterranean Diet Shown to Ward Off Heart Attack and Stroke Gina Kolata reports on a study showing a 30% reduction in cardiovascular disease amongst a high risk group after they changed to a Mediterranean diet:
About 30 percent of heart attacks, strokes and deaths from heart disease can be prevented in people at high risk if they switch to a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil, nuts, beans, fish, fruits and vegetables, and even drink wine with meals, a large and rigorous new study has found.
It seems the American media have also picked up on this study. Lizzie Crocker writes Eat Like a Greek: The Mediterranean Diet That Could Save Your Life.
