Mediterranean Diet and Lifestyle Ethnographic Case Study for Eugeria, Health, and Longevity

Research on the dietary and lifestyle characteristics associated with longevity and healthy and happy aging mirrors my observations when performing an ethnographic study of people on the Greek island of Crete who were alive in the 1950s.
