Middelhavsdiett gir god helse og lengre liv

En stor kohortstudie (studie der man følger en gruppe mennesker over tid og ser hvem som utvikler sykdom) viser at middelhavsdiett gir god helse og bedre overlevelse.

The Association Between Dietary Patterns at Midlife and Health in Aging: An Observational Study

Ann Intern Med. 2013;159(9):584-591. doi:10.7326/0003-4819-159-9-201311050-00004

Results: After multivariable adjustment, greater adherence to the AHEI-2010 (upper vs. lower quintiles) in midlife was related to 34% (95% CI, 9% to 66%; P for trend < 0.001) greater odds of healthy versus usual aging. Greater adherence to Alternate Mediterranean diet was related to 46% (CI, 17% to 83%; P for trend = 0.002) greater odds of healthy aging. When the 4 components of healthy aging were analyzed separately, the AHEI-2010 and Alternate Mediterranean diet were significantly associated with greater likelihood of no major limitations in physical function and mental health.

Limitations: Residual confounding was possible, although many confounding factors were considered. Bias due to complex patterns of measurement error within diet scores cannot be excluded.

Conclusion: Better diet quality at midlife seems to be strongly linked to greater health and well-being in persons surviving to older ages.
