Scientists at Harvard and University of Athens Medical School traced the eating habits of 22,043 GREEKS for nearly four years and found that a GREEK diet cut the risk of death from cancer and heart disease by 25% or more. GREEKS eat a lot of nuts, fruits, vegetables, legumes, cereal and EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL. Ample servings of fish, moderate levels of dairly and alcohol and some meat.
