This study was carried out on a group of women of childbearing age. Also on this week’s list of notable articles, a great number of which were carried out on children and adolescents, was that from the DIMENU project, in which they conclude that the Mediterranean diet led to a better lipid and glycemic profile in healthy adolescents, an association that benefited from the practice of physical activity; on the other hand, the PASOS study, which evaluated the determinants that led to a better adherence to the Mediterranean diet.
