The vibrant and rich culture of the Mediterranean people is nowhere more evident than in their colorful cuisine. Deep reds, bright oranges, luminous greens and vivid yellows - they are present in every platter.

Mediterranean dietary patterns can reduce the risk of cancer and re cardio protective. Because of its unquestionable health benefits, American physicians have been learning the Mediterranean Food Pyramid and how it can be incorporated into their practice.
