Uno dei piaceri del viaggio è immergersi dove gli altri sono destinati a risiedere, e uscirne intatti, riempiti dell'allegria maligna di abbandonarli alla loro sorte.

Caro Papa Francesco vorrei che tutti all'interno della chiesa avessero la tua umilta' che ti rende cosi' umano da capire le sofferenze di chi ti circonda, ma allo stesso tempo cosi' grande da infondere tanta speranza nei cuori dell'umanita'! Tu ci mostri un Dio , un Cristo a cui poco importa delle apparenze, delle false illusioni, delle grandi teologie. Un Padre (Dio) che ha sacrificato il suo figlio prediletto per amore dell'intera umanita' non e' umilta' questa! Dio si e' fatto uomo per noi! Diventiamo anche noi piu' "umani" per gli altri. E questo e' il mio augurio per tutti di una Santa e Serena Pasqua.

Buongiornoooooooooooo MOndo!!!!!

The Mediterranean diet is a nutritional model inspired by the traditional dietary patterns of three European and one African countries: Italy, Greece, Spain and Morocco. In 2010 itwas included in the World Cultural Heritage 'by UNESCO.

The father of the Mediterranean diet was Dr.. Lorenzo Piroddi (Genoa 1911-1999), whowas the first to realize a connection between nutrition and metabolic diseases, such as diabetes, obesity and bulimia.

The Mediterranean diet has a high consumption of bread, fruit, vegetables, herbs, grains, olive oil, fish and wine and is based on a paradox: people living in Mediterranean countries consume quantities 'quite high in fat but l' use of olive oil, animal fats offsets. Olive oilseems to lower levels of blood cholesterol is, it is argued, moreover, that the moderate consumption of wine during meals (one glass per meal), is another protective factor forthe antioxidants present in it.

According to various studies, carried out by famous American scientists, the Mediterranean diet, decreases the rate of mortality due to coronary artery by more than 50%. According to these studies, the positive diet has protective effects on the brain, helping to prevent cognitive decline. Not only that, the Mediterranean diet reduce the chance of developing Alzheimer's disease.
