Eat like you're Mediterranean, live longer

Filed under:

It's been said that drinking moderate amounts of red wine and using olive oil to cook those foods would lead many of us to a longer life. Scientists this week again reiterated that this 'Mediterranean Diet' is filled with great ingredients, some of which have been found to increased the lifespan are -- are you ready -- yeast.

While yeast and that animal known as a human being are quite different from the surface, both creatures share many genes, believe it or not.

This newer research has led some scientists to speculate that the specific combination of foods from the Mediterranean area could translate into more longevity for humans -- just like in yeast.
