Researchers believe that consuming Mediterranean foods have a lot of health benefits. According to an article about Mediterranean food "Research has shown that the traditional Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease. In fact, an analysis of more than 1.5 million healthy adults demonstrated that following a Mediterranean diet was associated with a reduced risk of death from heart disease and cancer, as well as a reduced incidence of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases." - Mayoclinic.org

Since Mediterranean food usually consist of fresh produce like fruits, vegetables and grains it is believed that an average person following the Mediterranean diet gets more than six servings of antioxidant-rich foods in a day. Antioxidants are beneficial to our body because of its ability to fight-off free radicals which causes illness. This is probably the reason why Mediterranean diet is associated with reduction of heart disease and cancer which are among the most common cause of deaths in the U.S.
