How to Properly Store Wine for the Long Term
Wine and veg contribute to a long life
Keeping red meat to a minimum is also advised
Drinking a glass of wine or two a day as well as large amounts of fruit, vegetables and olive oil while keeping red meat consumption to a minimum add up to a recipe for a longer life, a new study suggests.
Researchers found that not all foods that make up theMediterranean dietcarry the same benefits. Eating large amounts offish and seafoodfor example or the low levels ofdairytraditionally associated with the diet did little or nothing tolengthen life span.
Previous research has found that sticking to thedietcan protect the brain against developingAlzheimer’sand other memory problems, cut the chances of developingheart diseaseand even reduce the risk of being diagnosed withcancer.
The latest study, which followed 23,000 people, found that those who adhered most closely to a typical Mediterraneandietwere14%more likely to still be alive at the end of eight years.
Prof Dimitrios Trichopoulos, from the Harvard School of Public Health, who led the study, said: ‘The analysis suggests that the dominant components of theMediterranean diet… are moderate consumption of alcohol, mostly in the form ofwineduring meals, as it traditional in the Mediterranean countries,low consumption of meatand meat products, andhigh consumption of vegetables, fruits and nuts, olive oil and legume.’
Drinking wine had the most benefit on life span the findings suggest, followed by reducing meat consumption and then eating high numbers of fruit, vegetables and nuts.
However, the findings, published online by the British Medical Journal, do not mean that eating fish carries few health benefits. Previous studies have suggested that theomega three‘good’ fatty acids found in fatty fish like tuna and salmon can help protect the mind against decline and even cut the risk that men will develop prostate cancer.
