More good news for the Mediterranean Diet

As many of you know, I'm a big fan of the heart heathy benefits of adhering to a Mediterranean Diet. Now, new research shows that that individuals who adhered to the Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra virgin oil had significant regression of the carotid vessel-wall volume compared with those who ate a control diet low in saturated fat.While this does not mean these patients had a reduction in hard clinical events (less heart attacks, strokes...), it does add to the ever growing body of evidence that eating a Mediterranean style diet and frequent exercise are the heart healthiest way to live.
