Marta Crous-Bou i wsp. Mediterranean diet and telomere length in Nurses’ Health Study: population based cohort study, LINK: BMJ 2014;349:g6674 (dostępny pełen tekst)

Greater adherence to the Mediterranean diet was associated with longer telomeres

Telomere length variability may be partially explained by lifestyle practices; as accelerated telomere attrition may underlie many chronic diseases, identifying modifiable factors that affect telomere dynamics is important

The results further support the benefits of adherence to the Mediterranean diet for promoting health and longevity
