The results of a new study revealing some hard evidence that consuming a Mediterranean Diet cuts the risk of heart disease.
FOX News Radio's Lisa Lacerra has the details:
One of the largest and most scientific tests of the so-called Mediterranean Diet suggests it can cut the chance of suffering heart related problems, especially strokes in older people prone to having them. The five-year study involved about 75-hundred people in Spain ages 55 to 80. Those who ate Mediterranean style with lots of olive oil, tomato sauce, beans and nuts had a 30% lower risk of major cardiovascular problems compared to those who were told to follow a low-fat diet, but didn't actually cut the fat very much. The results published by the New England Journal of Medicine.
