The Mediterranean diet beat out a low fat diet for heart health, according to a new study released by the New England Journal of Medicine.
The study is reliable because of its size. It involved 7,500 people who were monitored for five years.
The people who ate the Mediterranean diet had an astonishing 30 percent lower risk of cardiovascular problems compared with the low fat group.
The Mediterranean diet includes extra olive oil or nuts, lots of fruit, fish, chicken, beans, tomato sauce, salads and wine.
