Mediterranean diet and telomere length in Nurses’ Health Study

Peer-Reviewed Scientific Journal:
British Medical Journal

Size of study:
4,676 women

Eating a Mediterranean Diet is associated with longer telomere length — an established marker of slower aging. A Mediterranean Diet is rich in plants, whole grains, nuts, lean protein such as fish and olive oil and is well established as a heart healthy practice. This study suggests that the mechanism whereby this way of eating leads to lower CVD risk is via mitigation of telomere shortening.

  • A Mediterranean diet is excellent but a KETOGENIC DIET… high in good fats …. THE BULLETPROOF diet being the upgraded version of a ketogenic diet…. is by far …. in my humble opinion …
    The best choice …. if u choose to be a vegetarian…. which only BLOOD TYPE A should choose… its very simple to adapt the BULLETPROOF LIFESTYLE for vegetarians. I have practised bulletproof living for over 2 years with 2 ozone therapy treatments a week … resistance weight lifting…. i am thriving and have an advanced form of a rare leukemia.
