"Interest in the Mediterranean diet derives directly from the results of the Seven
Countries Study, which began in 1958 (Keys et al., 1970). After 5 to 15 years of
follow-up, the study demonstrated that the mortality rate from coronary heart
disease in southern Europe was two- to three-fold lower than in northern Europe or
the United States. The mortality from coronary heart disease and all causes in the
cohort from Crete was much lower than that among the nine other cohorts from
southern Europe. This findings suggested that the population of Crete could be
considered to have the greatest life expectancy in the Western world, even though
average serum cholesterol concentrations in the population of Crete were similar to
those in the other Mediterranean cohorts"

The Lyon Heart Study is a good one, because it showed the health benefit could be replicated with a modified Mediterrean diet, without needing to live the full Mediterrean lifestyle and they had pretty impressive results if you ask me.

"The Lyon Heart Study based on a modified diet of Crete has clearly shown that the
diet of Crete could decrease the death rate from coronary artery disease by 70% and
is a diet that can be easily adapted to the French population and possibly other
populations as well."
