Abstract

Mediterranean Diet is probably related with multidimensional nutritional, behavioral and social aspects. The point is to define if these subjects are happier, with less anxiety and depression, because have an healthier profile, or are the happier subjects which adhere more easily to healthier dietary profiles. There is the need of an articulated approach in the assessment and treatment of patients with possible, impending or actual cognitive-mood impairment, and warrants a sustainable and rational preventive approach within a comprehensive lifestyle framework. This must necessarily have a predictive component (nutritional and lifestyle assessment) but also should include preventive and personalized tools of intervention, through population campaigns and dietary and physical exercise prescriptions. In our experience, this last is an affordable strategy with benefits for the patients and tangible economical advantages, especially in the era of health budget constraints.
