  • Doctors emphasise health benefits of Mediterranean diet

    Good news for olive oil market as doctors emphasise health benefits of Mediterranean diet.

    An editorial published by doctors in the Postgraduate Medical Journal (PMJ) this month argues in favour of the health benefits produced by following a Mediterranean diet.

    Numerous senior figures in medicine put their name on the article, including Dr Mahiben Maruthappu, a senior worker in the NHS England and the chair of the Academy of Medical royal Colleges, Professor Terence Stephenson.

    The doctors explain that this diet raipdly reduces the risk of heart attacks and strokes and may additionally prove a more effective way of losing weight than simply eating low-calorie foods.

    As a result, the editorial may have serious implications for the way others in the medical community respond to the obesity epidemic. In November this year, the British National Bariatric Surgery Registry revealed that nearly 40% of the under-25s in the UK who undergo weight loss surgery meet the classification standard for being “super obese”.
