The journal Nature notes that researchers wanted to track the impact of the Mediterranean diet on health and conducted a study that included 121,513 people, aged from 30 to 75 years. The researchers collected comprehensive information about the participants' eating habits and studied and analyzed data recorded in their medical records to evaluate their health condition.

It became clear to the researchers that people who ate the foods described in the Mediterranean diet had a reduced risk of developing 32 chronic diseases. Researchers also noted that this diet reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, many types of cancer, and diabetes.
