Diets Rich in Nuts and Olive Oil Lower Stroke Risk

A plant-based Mediterranean-style diet, heavy in nuts and olive oil, reduces risk of stroke.

Vegans who incorporate nuts and olive oils into their diets are lowering chances of stroke and possibly heart disease by 30 percent, according to a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. While the reduced risk of stroke was statistically sound, the lower risk of heart attack findings was not––this may be because of the low number of heart attacks suffered by the 7,447 people studied in Spain during the five-year span, points out Wall Street Journal. Participants between 55 and 80 years old with a high risk of heart disease were told to have a minimum of four tablespoons of olive oil or 30 grams of walnuts, almonds, or hazelnuts per day depending on their experiment group.
