students med-dietTHE Mediterranean Diet may soon be renamed the Medical Diet as now it’s even better for you than first thought.

A high intake of fish, plant foods and most importantly olive oil has been linked to the reduced risk of breast cancer.

The Lyon Diet Heart Study conducted in Spain found that those on the Mediterranean diet were 61% less likely to contact breast cancer.

Consumption of olive oil has also been linked to lowering heart disease risk.
