The Mediterranean diet was "discovered" by a doctor Ancel Keys. In 1945, Keys landed at Salerno with the American contingent, during his stay in Cilento discovered that cardiovascular diseases were less common than in his country, along with his team carried out a study comparing the eating habits of the United States, Japan, Italy, Greece, Yugoslavia, Holland and Finland. Were studied 14,000 people aged 40-59 years, divided into 14 samples. This study revealed that mortality from ischemic heart disease was significantly lower among populations located around the Mediterranean. Italy with Greece and Japan turned out one of the three countries with the lowest incidence of cardiovascular disease. Ancel Keys had highlighted the benefits of the diet of the rural South of the '50s, and on which it would base the food pyramid adopted in Anglo-Saxon countries.
