HAYWARD, Calif., April 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A recent study by Spanish researchers about the healthy benefits of olive oil has propelled the Mediterranean Diet once again at the center of the debate about healthy lifestyles and natural living. A multi-center, multi-year (5 years), randomized study supported by the official funding agency for biomedical research of the Spanish government and involving 7774 subjects, the PREDIMED Trial (Prevención con Dieta Mediterrànea) has found that about 30 percent of strokes and deaths from heart disease could be prevented if high risk subjects switched to a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil, and other traditional foods from that region. The finding was so startling, and so definitive, that the study was concluded ahead of schedule because results indicating benefits were irrefutable.
