Seriously, two: reasons. I've read on this extensively. The first is just wrong. The rate of heart disease was relatively low in Greece compared to England.. AND SO WAS THE OBESITY RATE!. (google 7 countries survey) Second, many good things are in that diet: no transfat, fish, vegetables, etc. mostly this is bunk though https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1775472781/1708440999?token=378a5145 details this.
