The Mediterranean diet has been consistently linked with health benefits, including reduced mortality and reduced risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease. When the 2015-2010 Dietary Guidelines for American was released healthy eating patterns, rather than the amounts of specific nutrients, was the main thrust of the guidelines.
