The Mediterranean diet, which is recognised by UNESCO's World Heritage listing, can add two to three years to your life, according to new Swedish research.

The Sahlgrenska Academy has monitored the diet of thousands of 70-year-olds in the province of Gothenburg for 40 years.

According to the results published in the magazine, Age, the researchers found that the Mediterranean diet adds a potential 20 per cent to the lifespan of the elderly.
