Research has consistently shown that the Mediterranean diet is effective in reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases, asthma, and certain cancers. However, to date, no epidemiological study has evaluated the association between adherence to the Mediterranean diet and the incidence of COVID-19. A recent analysis from the Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra (SUN) cohort has shed light on this potential association observing a higher adherence to this dietary pattern was associated with a lower subsequent risk of COVID-19, particularly, among non-healthcare professionals. Biological mechanisms that could explain such protection include immune-enhancing and anti-inflammatory effects, lower glycemic index, and lower cholesterol levels.

The Mediterranean diet is accompanied by other key aspects of the Mediterranean culture, including an environment which fosters socialization, physical activity, a short nap or “siesta” after meals, traditional recipes, and culinary practices. All these elements and behaviors best characterize the adoption of a traditional Mediterranean lifestyle. Epidemiologic studies have started to evaluate the joint health effect of multiple health behaviors and biological cardiovascular risk factors combined into a single predefined score. In this sense, a Mediterranean lifestyle (MEDLIFE) index score was developed and validated in a Spanish working population and has been used in both Mediterranean and non-Mediterranean populations. In fact, regarding the latter group, a new cross-sectional analysis in 249 US career firefighters showed that a higher adherence to traditional Mediterranean lifestyle habits, as measured by the MEDLIFE index, was associated with a decreased prevalence of metabolic syndrome. Moreover, among the metabolic syndrome components, MEDLIFE was inversely associated with abdominal obesity and hypertriglyceridemia, as well as total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and total-c:HDL cholesterol ratio, which favors a more beneficial cardiometabolic profile.
