Mediterranean diet linked to drop in CVD risk
Adherence to the Mediterranean diet (MED) is associated with a 25 percent reduction in the risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD), compared with those who do not follow this diet, new research suggests. Investigators used data from the Women's Health Study, which followed close to 26,000 women between their late forties and early sixties over a 12-year period, assessing 40 biomarkers known to be associated with CVD risk.
