Countless studies carried out in the last few years have come to the conclusion that the countries around the Mediterranean have a lower incidence rate of deaths from cancer or heart attack than other countries elsewhere.

That is why, in the prevention of these types of diseases, following a diet that we now have come to call the Mediterranean diet is advised. A diet composed of: Pasta, pulses, vegetables, lots of fruit, olive oil, small amounts of meat and plenty of fish, wholemeal bread, some herbs and spices (garlic, oregano, some pepper) and small amounts of red wine. It can be said, therefore, that the Mediterranean diet is scientifically and universally recognized as being the healthiest of all diets.
