The article says: "Mediterranean diets have long been touted as heart-healthy, but that's based on observational studies that can't prove the point." This is not true. Dr. Ancel Keys at the University of Minnesota proved the heart health benefits of the Mediterranean diet beginning almost 60+ years ago with his Seven Countries study that followed 12,000 men for decades. Google his name. Give credit where it's due.

Yet another study showing that low carb(sugar) trumps low fat. I work in medicine and we have been using low carb/high protein and fat diets to treat high lipids for years. Someday the Government will modify the food pyramid to reflect this, before our entire country turns into one giant gooey blob.

Did the author of this article see the research done on red wine? That the non-alcoholic red wine was superior to the alcohol based wine!
