Mediterranean Diet's Effect on Heart Risks

A Mediterranean diet can prevent about 30 percent of heart attacks, strokes and deaths from heart disease in people at high risk, according to a new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine.

The results of the effects of the diet – which is rich in olive oil, nuts, beans, fish, fruits and vegetables, and a glass of wine with meals – were so clear that the study ended early as it was deemed unethical to continue.

The researchers were careful to say in their paper that while the diet clearly reduced heart disease for those at high risk for it, more research was needed to establish its benefits for people at low risk. But the expectation is the diet would help people at both high and low risk, and it is suggested that the best way to use it for protection would be to start in childhood.

Until now, evidence that the Mediterranean diet reduced the risk of heart disease was weak, based mostly on studies showing that people from Mediterranean countries seemed to have lower rates of heart disease — a pattern that could have been attributed to factors other than diet.

Mediterranean Diet Shown to Ward Off Heart Attack and Stroke

Heart disease, heart attacks, strokes and even pregnancy complications can be related to a poor diet.  A new study enforces a diet rich in vegetables, nuts, legumes and fish can help us avoid some of the diseases which lead to early death from medical problems.
