Mediterranean Diet and Mortality in a Us Population.[Comment]

Scarmeas, Nikolaos; Luchsinger, Jose A.; Mayeux, Richard Paul; Schupf, Nicole; Stern, Yaakov

In a recent study of a US population, Mitrou et al reported longer survival for subjects conforming more to the Mediterranean Diet (MeDi). A few months earlier, we had demonstrated that higher adherence to the MeDi was associated with reduced mortality in community-based Alzheimer disease (AD) patients who were identified in another US population in New York, New York. Considering subjects from the same New York study, we had previously demonstrated that higher conformity to the MeDi was also associated with reduced risk for AD. In a different New York population, we have also showed that higher MeDi adherence is related to a lower odds for essential tremor.
