Mediterranean diet helpful for people who already have heart disease


Posted by Misia

A Mediterranen diet not only may prevent the onset of heart disease, but it may also help people who already have heart disease stay healthy, new research from Greece shows.

Researchers looked at a thousand patients who had suffered heart attacks or severe chest pain. Nearly half of them experienced a second heart-related event within two years after their original hospital discharge, but patients with the most Mediterranean-style diets were at 31 percent lower risk of suffering another heart attack or experiencing chest pain during the first month after they were discharged from the hospital.
