The version of the diet familiar to most Americans first appeared as a set of guidelines presented by the World Health Organization, Harvard School of Public Health and nutrition nonprofit Oldways in 1993.
It was based on the diets of Greece — particularly its largest island, Crete — and Southern Italy in the early 1960s, because of the populations’ high life expectancy and low rates of heart disease and certain cancers at the time.

So naturally, Lauren switches tactics and goes on the offense, telling Malia that she should wipe her lipstick off before exiting a make out session (as she literally runs away to safety).
