Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease with a Mediterranean Diet — NEJM

As radiologists, while it is important to know our radiology signs and methods of interpretation, a little knowledge of what is happening in the rest of the medical field doesn’t hurt, especially when patients these days often seem better informed.

Today, this study has been published in the current issue of NEJM. There were three groups, two with Mediterranean diets and one control group without. The two groups with the Mediterranean diets along with olive oil and mixed nut (walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts) supplements showed a significant reduction in cardiovascular risk and events over 5 years.
