A stunning new study has shown that heart problems can be prevented by switching to a Mediterranean diet. Strokes, heart attacks, and death from heart disease are preventable in about 30 percent of people at high risk who follow this diet.
The Mediterranean diet features virgin olive oil, wine with meals, nuts, fish, fruits and vegetables, and beans.
The New England Journal of Medicine published the findings on its web site in February 2013. This was the first major clinical trial to measure the effect of this diet in terms of heart risks. The data produced such a magnitude of benefits that it startled experts. It used very rigorous study methods.
Researchers concluded that it would be unethical to continue the study when the results were so clear. So it ended early, stopping after almost five years. That meant the study findings could be announced to the public.
