The diet has become a popular area of study due to observations made in 1960 of low incidences of chronic disease and high life-expectancy rates attributed to the populations who consumed a traditional Mediterranean diet.
The diet is closely tied geographically to areas of olive oil cultivation in the Mediterranean Basin.
The factors affecting the traditional dietary customs of the region are economy, environment, society and culture, disasters (e.g., war, drought), the expansion of food industries, and advertising campaigns promoting certain foods (e.g., soda, candy bars).

  Staple food - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A staple food is a food that forms the basis of a traditional diet, particularly that of the poor.
Staple foods vary from place to place, but are typically inexpensive starchy foods of vegetable origin that are high in food energy and that can be stored for use throughout the year.
Although nutritious, staple foods generally do not by themselves provide a full range of nutrients, so other foods need to be added to the diet to prevent malnutrition.

Traditional diet appears to lower risk of cancer
Dark green leafy vegetables and deep yellow vegetables such as squash - another staple of the traditional Native diet - are high in carotenoids and other compounds that are thought to reduce the risk of cancer by their antioxidant and cancer preventive properties.
In 1997, it was determined that carotenoids probably reduce lung cancer risk and possibly reduce the risk of cancers of the esophagus, stomach, colon and rectum, breast and cervix.

Tuttle's team studied 202 people who had suffered heart attacks in the previous six weeks and found that people on either diet were two–thirds less likely to suffer another heart attack, stroke, or other heart problems or die than people who continued to eat their usual diet.
Those on the Mediterranean diet were allowed to increase their fat intake to 40%, "the difference coming from healthier monounsaturated fats, with a special emphasis on omega–3 fatty acids," Tuttle says.
People in both diet groups were then compared with a group of 101 heart attack survivors who did not receive any intensive dietary intervention or nutrition counseling.

BEAUPORT, QUEBEC - The traditional marine diet eaten by older Inuit seems to protect them from cardiovascular disease (CVD), but younger Inuit are shifting their diets away from these foods and may not be getting the benefits.
It concludes the the traditional diet is probably responsible for the low death rates from heart disease among Inuit.
In several native populations, a shift away from traditional lifestyles and diets is associated with increased risk factors for CVD, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.

 Ancient Dietary Wisdom for Tomorrow's Children
The diets of the healthy "primitives" Price studied were all very different: In the Swiss village where Price began his investigations, the inhabitants lived on rich dairy products--unpasteurized milk, butter, cream and cheese--dense rye bread, meat occasionally, bone broth soups and the few vegetables they could cultivate during the short summer months.
Adequate DHA in the mother's diet is necessary for the proper development of the retina in the infant she carries.
The advantage of such a diet is supposed to be reduced risk of heart disease in later life--even though not a single study has shown such an hypothesis to be tenable.

 The Mediterranean Diet: Pasta or Pastrami?
This, according to the Diet Dictocrats, is the diet that we should adopt to protect ourselves from chronic disease, especially heart disease.
The Diet Dictocrats, flush with the success of their food pyramid, seem to have missed the ecstatic experience of calamari, dipped in batter, deep fried and served heaped up on platters—a healthy snack as long as traditional fats, not partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, are used in frying.
The presence of adequate amounts of vitamins A and D in the Cretan diet is probably what protects populations throughout the Mediterranean from the high amount of bread or pasta and frequent use of sweets.

I visited Japan a few years ago and found that the traditional diet is a thing of the past.
The traditional Japanese diet always included seaweed, which fortunately provides sufficient minerals to overcome the potential deficiency resulting from the effect of soy lignins.
However, seen in context with the whole diet, large doses of these phytoestrogens are not as healthy as smaller doses combined with all the other factors found in the traditional Japanese diet.

 Green Left - Issues: 'Industrial cuisine' and the 'traditional diet'
An ongoing diet, traditional or otherwise, was beyond the reach of this new mass layer of paupers unless they could sell their labourpower to obtain food.
This shift from traditional diets was not one of choice, as Scrinis seems to suggest, but one of surviving on the foodstuffs to hand, sold by small hucksters and oftentimes adulterated to stretch its weight and texture.
The modern diet -- meat centred, supplemented by highly processed and refined grains, and foods saturated with chemicals and additives -- is not an inevitable product of industrialisation but of capitalist commodity production in which everything is alienated for the sake of profits gleamed by another class.

 Tapping Indigenous Knowledge: Antioxidants in the Traditional Diet of the Maasai: Centro Internacional de ...
The traditional diet of East Africa's Maasai people may contain powerful plant-based antioxidants with the potential to reduce cholesterol levels and provide other health benefits, according to research by Timothy Johns, a Canadian ethnobotanist at McGill University.
The Maasai are cattle herding pastoralists, about a million of whom inhabit the semi-arid lands of Kenya and Tanzania in an area bordered by Mount Kilimanjaro in the east, the Serengeti Plain in the west, and the Ngorongoro Crater in the south.
Although IDRC has insisted that his group develop a fair and equitable intellectual property agreement, its status is still the subject of intense discussion among the Maasai themselves.

 Mediterranean diet for heart health - MayoClinic.com
The Mediterranean diet incorporates the basics of healthy eating, plus a splash of flavorful olive oil and perhaps a glass of good red wine, among other components characterizing the traditional cooking style of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea.
While these fundamental parts of a healthy diet remain tried and true, subtle variations or differences in proportions of certain foods may make a difference in your risk of heart disease.
The Mediterranean diet is similar to the American Heart Association's Step I diet, but it contains less cholesterol and has more fats that contain the beneficial linolenic acid (a type of omega-3 fatty acid).

The study assessed the eating habits of 449 first-generation (born in Latin America) children, 1,568 second-generation (born in the U.S., parents born in Latin America) children, and 1,165 third-generation children (Mexican-American children born in the U.S. whose parents were also born in this country).
A traditional Latin American diet includes fruits, beans and vegetables, but the later generation Mexican-American children ate diets with less fruit and more fat.
The challenge is to recapture the children's attention to their traditional diet and shift American culture's approach to eating; otherwise we are headed for a major catastrophe of degenerative diseases.
