According to the study, Spanish Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet (SKMD) is an effective way of losing weight, lowering blood pressure and improving fasting blood glucose levels.
Ketogenic diets are an effective healthy way of losing weight since they promote a non-atherogenic lipid profile, lower blood pressure and decrease resistance to insulin with an improvement in blood levels of glucose and insulin. On the other hand, Mediterranean diet is well known to be one of the healthiest diets, being the basic ingredients of such diet the olive oil, red wine and vegetables. In Spain, the fish is an important component of such diet.
The objective of the study Spanish Ketogenic Mediterranean diet: a healthy cardiovascular diet for weight loss, written by Joaquín Pérez-Guisado, Andrés Muñoz-Serrano and Ángeles Alonso-Moraga, from the Department of Genetic of the University of Córdoba (Spain) was to determine the dietary effects of a protein ketogenic diet rich in olive oil, salad, fish and red wine. An article about this study has been published in the Nutrition Journal in 2008.
According to this study, the SKMD is safe, an effective way of losing weight, promoting non-atherogenic lipid profiles, lowering blood pressure and improving fasting blood glucose levels.

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.
The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
