A recent article published on the Huffington Post website praises the Greek diet and presents the reasons why humanity should be grateful to the Greeks.
According to the article, apart from the other great achievements such as democracy, philosophy and the Olympic Games, modern society should thank Greece for feta, the country’s traditional cheese.
