Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil, nuts slashes heart risk

(Continued)

MINNEAPOLIS —

Recommended foods in the Mediterranean diet were olive oil, nuts, fruits and vegetables, fish, legumes, a mix tomato, onion and garlic, and wine with meals. Soda, baked goods, spreads and red or processed meats were discouraged. Those in the comparison group were encouraged to eat low-fat dairy products, bread, potatoes, pasta or rice, fruits and vegetables, lean fish and seafood, and told to avoid vegetable oil, baked goods, nuts, red meat, fatty fish, spreads and the mix of tomato, onion and garlic known as sofrito.

The study was funded by the Spanish government's Instituto de Salud Carlos III.
