Mediterranean Diet Reduces Risk of Stroke

A new study reveals that a traditional Mediterranean-style diet reduces stroke risk among white adults who are at high risk of cardiovascular disease. Led by Norwich Medical School’s Professor Ailsa Welch, the study shows that the diet may be especially protective in women over 40 regardless of menopausal status or hormone replacement therapy.

Professor Welch and co-authors collaborated to study the intake of key components of a Mediterranean-style diet including high intakes of fish, fruits and nuts, vegetables, cereal foods and potatoes, lower meat and dairy consumption.
