Mediterranean diet adds three years to your life

Everyone knows that eating a Mediterranean diet - mainly fish and vegetables - is healthier, but now scientists have worked out just how many extra years of life it can give us

Everyone knows that eating a Mediterranean diet - mainly fish and vegetables - is healthier, but now scientists have worked out just how many extra years of life it can give us.
They reckon the diet can add three years to your life, and, overall, increase your chances of living longer by 20 per cent.
The estimate - worked out by scientists at the Sahlgrenska Academy in Sweden - is pretty conclusive. It comes from the 'H70' study, which has studied the lifestyles of thousands of 70-year-olds for more than 40 years.
But the good effects are not confined only to the elderly. One study the researchers looked at involved children, who also seemed to be healthier than their counterparts who ate a meat and dairy diet.
