“[As found in Ancel Keys’ 1950s study of seven countries] the least amount of heart disease was on the island of Crete, where the predominently rural population ate a huge amount of meat. The balance of their caloric intake consisted of grain, fruit, and vegetables, along with a staggering amount of olive oil - it accounted for forty percent of their diets. For the farmers there, it was literally a beverage. They actually drank it for breakfast...[they] had no processed or packaged foods, no electricity, and no stress...they ate real food, walked a lot, went to bed when it got dark, got up when it was light, took care of their own children, and didn’t worry about ‘keeping up with the Strovropopouloses.’” -TS Wiley with Bent Formby PhD
