Mediterranean Diet of Olive Oil, Nuts, Reduces Heart Disease

Mediterranean Diet of Olive Oil, Nuts, Reduces Heart Disease | Healthy Living! | Scoop.it

A diet with lots of olive oil and nuts cuts the risk of stroke and other major cardiovascular problems by 30% among high-risk people, according to a new study. 

There's a large body of research linking a Mediterranean diet—one heavy on fruits, vegetables, fish and beans—to heart health. But this study, published Monday in the New England Journal of Medicine, is significant both for its size—it followed 7,447 people in Spain over almost 5 years—and its scientific rigor. Many previous studies haven't been able to prove direct cause and effect or have assessed the diet's impact only on certain cardiovascular risk factors, like blood pressure or cholesterol.

By comparison, 4.4% of members in the control group suffered this outcome. The reduction is the risk of stroke was statistically significant. The reduction in the risk of heart attack was not, possibly because of low incidence of heart attacks among people in the study, researchers said.
