This first analysis dealing with the relation between the Mediterranean diet and ADHD in children and adolescents, uncovers some unhealthy eating habits that could play a role in the development of this psychiatric disorder.

High-level Adherence to a Mediterranean Diet Beneficially Impacts the Gut Microbiota and Associated Metabolome
When asked, what is the best diet to follow, there is normally a wide range of options provided. These are mostly based on contemporary patterns, ethical, religious, geographical and preference. However, whilst all dietary practices have aspects that are lauded over, one style of eating consistently supports general benefit to the consumer. That is the traditional Mediterranean diet (MD), defined as: A nutritionally recommended dietary pattern characterised by high-level intake of fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and minimally processed cereals, moderately high consumption of ﬁsh, low intake of saturated fat, meat and dairy products and regular, but moderate, consumption of alcohol. Unesco has recognised the Mediterranean diet (MD) as an intangible cultural heritage.

It’s one of those great paradoxes, that trouble researcher’s, clinicians and their patients – why is there so much variable information about the role diet has in heart health and why can we not have a universally agreed approach to one of the world’s greatest killers. After all it is estimated by the Heart Foundation that by 2020, heart disease will be the leading cause of death throughout the world.
So when a heart controversy related to dietary choices reaches a position of virtual irrefutability we should all take a step back and look hard at what this evidence is and then we should feel a strong desire to implement the recommendations in our personal and clinical lives.
