Mediterranean Diet Could Have More Benefits

(Undated) -- A new study is finding more benefits to a diet that has already been linked to a healthier heart. Registered Dietitian Kate Patton says the Mediterranean Diet can help slow the aging process and lead to a longer life. Researchers analyzed data from almost 47-hundred women and found those who closely follow a Mediterranean Diet have longer Telomeres, a piece of genetic material located at the end of chromosomes. These Telomeres generally shorten with age.
