RESEARCHERS LEARNED that people that live on the European coast of the Mediterranean Sea ~known as Côte d'Azur~ are endowed with low incidence of heart disease, stroke, cholesterol, Type 2 Diabetes, cancer, Parkinson & Alzheimer when compared with most people in the world.

Scientists at University of Florence, Italy decided to carry out a long-term study involving people of same age group in good state of health. All participants were requested to stay with the French Mediterranean Diet, but they were not mandated to. 18 years later, participants were gathered and their health assessed. Scientists confirmed that those who stayed with the French Mediterranean Diet had significantly reduced risks to serious illnesses such as ~but not limited to~ heart desease, stroke, cancer, Type 2 Diabetes, Parkinson's & Alzheimer's Diseases.

Recently, in the French regions of Bourdeaux and Dijon, one study carried out by 'Molecular Nutrition and Food Research' involving 840 people older than 65 years without dementia has arrived to a conclusion: older people consuming the French Mediterranean Diet are at a much lower risk of cognitive decline.

The French Mediterranean Diet is known outside France, but it is unknown within France. French people eat meals loaded with nutrients from fruits, vegetables, herbs, grains, garlic, nuts, olive oil, omega fatty acids from fish since after they stop sucking milk out of their mother's breasts.

French people are not on a 'diet.' It is the 'Way of Life' of humans who are more evolved.
