Other news


In this week's newsletter, we would like to highlight the CARDIOPREV study, a randomized study for secondary cardiovascular prevention with a total of 1002 patients. This study is a large RCT that compared the effects of a Mediterranean diet (with free provision of extra virgin olive oil) versus a low-fat diet, and reported an adjusted HR= 0.719 (95% CI 0.541-0.957) for the primary endpoint (a composite of mayor CV events, including myocardial infarction, revascularization, ischemic stroke, peripheral artery disease and CV death). This study has had an impact on the media, such as the article in the health section highlighting the importance of consuming healthy fats, especially extra virgin olive oil, as opposed to low-fat diets.

In addition, this week we have several studies that link the Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil with a delay in biological aging, as in the case of the Moli-Sani study.
Among other studies on disease prevention, two meta-analyses find a negative association between the Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil and the occurrence of type 2 diabetes, as well as the occurrence of lung cancer. Another review study -this time, a systematic review- found prevention of this type of diet in the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
