The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Do Mediterraneans follow a Mediterranean diet?

    Not in Barcelona, apparently.

    Among more than 600 people studied, fidelity to the classic Mediterranean diet was lacking.

    • Excessive consumption of food high in saturated fat, especially young people
    • Deficit intake of slowly absorbed carbohydrates
    • Less than ideal consumption of fruit, green vegetables and root vegetables, particularly among the young
    • Consumption of milk products below recommended amount

    On the other hand, fish and white meat was about right.

    Can you say, “Crispy Chicken Sandwich?” I think its part pf the Mc-dieting of the world’s population.
