Colourful Mediterranean Diet linked to less heart attacks and strokes
A global study led by Professor Ralph Stewart of Auckland City Hospital, New Zealand, has shown that adherence to the Rainbow Diet greatly reduced heart attack, stroke and cardiovascular risk. Following over 15,400 people globally showed the results did not change wherever the participant lived.
The researchers built a point system. From every point closer to the perfect Rainbow Diet adherence, the risk of heart, stroke or cardiovascular problems declined by 7%. The research looked at people who had already had an ‘event’, of average age of 67 years.
The research was published by the European Society of Cardiology, April 2015. Chris Woollams, former Oxford University Biochemist and Author of the Rainbow Diet, added, “What was really interesting was the finding that it was better to be positive and to tell people to eat a Rainbow Diet, than it was to tell them to avoid certain foods.”
