Survive near ocean air water. Mediterranean diet has been linked to lowering your risk for cardiovascular disease , Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and type 2 diabetes

Dear Professor Kaufman,

Communist China will attack again with new viruses.

They want to cripple USA economy without firing a shot and stop Trump.

Many communist conspirators in USA want to submit to global communist rule by dictator emperor of Communist China.

I am re-evaluating all my health habits to resist viruses, germs, and diseases.

Diet and exercise the easiest and cheapest.

Am considering moving back to Pacific Coast for milder weather
so I can get outdoors without freezing weather, snow, ice.

Low population area
Avoid All people
Avoid people germs.

Pacific coast has consistent mild ocean air breezes and fresh water rivers filled with salmon.

California Coast is uninhabited north of San Francisco, nearly.

Oregon Coast uninhabited except Coos Bay.

Washington Coast nearly deserted except Grays Harbor.

Alaska is too cold but has the most fish and vegetables for the Med diet.

Reading articles such as the below on the trendy Med diet:

Mediterranean diet has been linked to lowering your risk for cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and type 2 diabetes.

One reason it works is by altering gut bacterium linked to healthy aging and lower inflammation in older people,

according to a study published the BMJ journal Gut.

Researchers from seven European countries collaborated to help determine if nutrition played a role in delaying the hallmarks of aging

— physical frailty, cognitive decline, deteriorating bodily functions and increasing inflammation.

They developed a year-long intervention that involved tracking more than

600 elderly subjects across five European nations as they followed the NU-AGE diet,

a variation of the Mediterranean diet tailored to the needs of elderly adults.

Researchers profiled gut microbiota of 612 elderly, but not frail, subjects

living in the United Kingdom, France, Netherlands, Italy and Poland.

Subjects adhered to the NU-AGE Mediterranean diet for 12-months, followed by another microbiota profile.

Results suggested that following the NU-AGE diet for a year could positively alter gut microbiome such as an increased production of short chain fatty acids.

This translated into health benefits such as decreased frailty,

improved cognitive function and

reduced negative inflammatory markers like C-reactive protein and interleukin-17.

“Short-chain fatty acids are produced by beneficial bacteria in the colon

and credited with lowering the risk of inflammatory diseases including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity,”

“Fruits, vegetables and legumes are good sources of short-chain fatty acids.”

Although it’s called the Mediterranean diet,
it’s really more of a style of eating,
than a diet per se,
and it’s rich in vegetables, fruits, lean meats like seafood and poultry and heart-healthy fats.

It comes from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, namely Spain, southern Italy and Greece.

If you’re interested in the Mediterranean diet, discuss it with your primary care doctor.

If your doctor thinks it’s a good idea, stock up on fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and nuts.

Swap butter with olive oil and season your foods with herbs and spices instead of salt.

Eat fish and poultry at least twice a week,
dairy in moderation
and limit red meat consumption to no more than a few times per month.

And avoid sugar.

The NU-AGE Project is a large multidisciplinary consortium of 16 European Union nations with a common goal of counteracting the physical and cognitive decline associated with aging.

The consortium includes 30 partners comprised of dieticians, biogerontologists, immunologists and molecular biologists

from prestigious European academic institutions;

five large food corporations;

eight traditional food companies;

biotechnology companies and FoodDrinkEurope,

Europe’s food and beverage industry.

MDVIP-affiliated physicians have time to customize an approach to nutrition and eating for their patients

that can help with weight management,

aging and other health-based goals.
