Mediterranean diet helps elderly people live longer

A diet rich in fish fruit and olive oil could help avoid erectile dysfunction

Carried out by researchers at the Department of Epidemiology and Prevention of the I.R.C.C.S. Neuromed, in Italy, the new study looked at 5,200 people over the age of 65 who were participating in the Moli-sani Study, a large-scale study which investigates the risk factors for cardiovascular disease and cancer, including the role of the Mediterranean diet. Olive oil is among the key ingredients which makes a difference and can also be considered a natural alternative to Viagra if consumed regularly.

The study, presented at the European Society of Cardiology conference in Munich, suggests a healthy diet in middle age could pave the way for an active drug-free love life well into their late 60s and 70s.

Greek researchers found that eating a Mediterranean-style diet rich in fruit and vegetables, legumes, fish and nuts, as well as olive oil, reduced the incidence of erectile dysfunction in men by up to 40 percent. Through the technique of meta-analysis, we could confirm that a higher adherence to the Mediterranean diet lowers overall mortality risk in a dose-response, progressive, way.

A Mediterranean diet could be the best way to maintain a man's sexual health well into old age.

"It offers men a long-term solution without taking any medication, such as Viagra".

The minister said everyone reserved the right to protest and that his government would provide full security to the TLP rally. Earlier, a Dutch judge extended by two weeks the detention of a 26-year-old man who allegedly threatened to attack Wilders.

Julie Ward, of the British Heart Foundation, said: "It's no surprise the Mediterranean diet, which we know is beneficial to heart and circulatory health, might also benefit blood vessels elsewhere, and help men maintain healthy sexual function". "Erectile dysfunction is a common problem, which can cause problems in relationships".

"Our research considers nutrition as a whole, but it is still interesting to understand which foods mainly contribute to the "driving" effect of the Mediterranean diet", explains Bonaccio.

And those who had the diet closest to the Mediterranean ideal were protected even further.

"Consuming olive oil and sticking to a Med diet keeps a man's bedroom chances high", she advised.
