A recent study suggests that adopting the Mediterranean diet helps in giving protection from some of the ill effects on their health caused due to air pollution. What is the Mediterranean diet actually? It is the diet style that includes high amounts of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, olive oils, fish, and poultry.

Benefits of Mediterranean Diet

2018 can be considered the year of the Mediterranean Diet. Due to the flexibility attribute of this diet, you can easily follow it for a lifetime. Here are some of the amazing benefits of following the Mediterranean diet.

  • Any diet rich in vegetables, protein, healthy fats, and whole grains can be considered highly nourishing for the brain and body and the Mediterranean Diet consists mostly of these elements.
  • This diet is very flexible in terms of food choices and has lots of variations. It has many names too, from “plant-based” to “Mediterranean”.
  • The Mediterranean diet is considered to be having a significant effect on mental health as it decreases the incidence of symptoms of depression.

What do the recent researches say?

At NYU School of Medicine, some researchers chose a huge number of people for analysis as they were having their diet somewhat similar to the Mediterranean diet. They gathered the data of approximately 550,000 people, having an average age of 62 who were spread throughout the United States for more than 17 years.

Along with that their exposure to air pollution and its composition which included particulate matter (PM2.5), nitrous oxide (NO2), and ozone (O3) were also studied.

When the researchers concluded their research and analysis of the collected data, they drew some intriguing inferences while comparing men & women following the Mediterranean diet while factoring them on the basis of their exposure to air pollution. Some of the inferences are as follows.

  • For every 10 parts per billion increase in long-term average nitrous oxide exposure, there is just a 2% increase in death due to any reason amid the strict followers of the Mediterranean diet, whereas, there was a 5% increase in death among the people who least adhered to that particular diet.
  • Death percentage due to cardiovascular diseases increased by 17% per 10 mg/cubic meter on an increase in long-term exposure in the people who loosely followed the diet, but for the disciplined followers of that diet, that rate of percentage was just 5%.
  • Similarly, positive trends were observed for death related to heart attacks.
  • Though the Mediterranean diet was not found to be significantly protective against ozone exposure.

If you’re looking for a heart-healthy eating plan, the Mediterranean diet might be right for you. Adopt it and lead a healthy life. If you need further guidance on fitness and lifestyle, especially, guidance related to women’s health, consult Dr. Mona Dahiya at Little Angel IVF now.
