How to live longer: Best diet to protect against disease and boost life expectancy

The authors of a large, long-term study featured in the British Medical Journal concluded vegetarianism is associated with a reduced risk of ischemic heart disease.

Another diet proven to help people live longer is the Mediterranean diet.

A study titled ‘Adherence to Mediterranean Diet Reduces Incident Frailty Risk: System Review and Meta-Analysis’, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, found a clear association between the Mediterranean diet and incident frailty.

But not only was there a link – the diet was found to significantly lower the risk of frailty, particularly in community-dwelling older people.
