The Perricone diet...oh dear, another bit of snake oil. While the Perricone Diet won't do you any harm (as long as you have no underlying conditions that is) it won't do you the good suggested.
The actual foods in the Perricone diet are fine. Pretty much a low cholestorol Mediterranean diet if we're to be honest.
All of that's true and quite possibly a little healthier than most people's normal diets. However, the Perricone diet goes on to make some rather silly claims.
Eh? What is this wibble about "inflammatory?" That part of the Perricone diet is explained over here.
Nonsense. Wibble in fact.
The truth about the Perricone diet is that it'll probably do you some good as it is indeed a reasonably healthy one. However, the "science" underlying it is rubbish. It's no more anti-ageing than any other reasonably healthy diet.

Did you say fruits right? All I know is that fruits are good for the skin. If fruits are part of the foods listed on perricone diet, how come it affects on aging? I think I'll agree on what you have said that these are nonsense and wibble.
