More than a myth:the science behind the Mediterranean diet

"Why" is a proper question,but there is one more-"How" to practice The Mediterr.diet.In the early years of my professional career I met 85-90 years old people who practiced the real Mediterr.diet and I feel happy for that They didn't know "Why" but knew "How" !
