A Note from Dr. B.:
You may have heard of the Mediterranean “diet,” which includes a high consumption of fish, fruits, raw and cooked vegetables, the use of olive oil and wine in low to moderate amounts. A major study in Italy confirmed that eating a diet rich in these foods lowers the risk of heart disease.
