In a study published in the journal Frontiers in Nutrition, researchers split 20 nonhuman primates between two groups that were fed a different diet for 30 months: one that ate a typical Western-style diet that included lard, beef tallow, butter, eggs, cholesterol, high-fructose corn syrup, and sucrose (AKA sugar); and the other that ate a Mediterranean diet of fish oil, olive oil, fish meal, butter, eggs, black and garbanzo bean flour, wheat flour, vegetable juice, fruit puree, and sucrose.
