How to live longer: Mediterranean diet shown to reduce disease to boost longevity

0

Many studies link a plant-rich diet to a lower risk of premature death, as well as a reduced risk of cancer, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, depression, and brain deterioration.

These effects are attributed to plant foods’ nutrients and antioxidants, which include polyphenols, carotenoids, folate, and vitamin C.

Accordingly, several studies link vegetarian and vegan diets, which are naturally higher in plant foods, to a 12–15 percent lower risk of premature death.

The same studies also report a 29–52 percent lower risk of dying from cancer or heart, kidney, or hormone-related diseases.
