In recent years, the Mediterranean diet has been one of the most studied diets, and therefore one of the diets whose health benefits are best known. One of its main characteristics is that it is very rich in extra virgin olive oil, which has shown to be one of its primary beneficial components. A study carried out in Spain across three different cohorts showed an inverse association between coronary heart disease (CHD) and the consumption of extra virgin olive oil between 20 and 30 grams per day, finding a HR of 0.57 (CI95% 0.34 to 0.96) in the category for the consumption of more than 30 gr/day of EVOO compared to those with a consumption of less than 10 gr/day when considering probable cases of CHD. In the same line, another study of the PREDIMED-Plus project has shown greater weight loss and improvement in HDL levels in patients with metabolic syndrome after an energy-restricted Mediterranean diet enriched with EVOO and physical exercise intervention was performed compared to those with the same diet and no physical exercise, showing a synergistic effect between exercise and diet.
In another study within the framework of the MCC-Spain project, a case-control study of gastric cancer and adherence to a Mediterranean diet was carried out, including 459 cases and 3440 controls. The association between high adherence to a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil and gastric cancer showed a decreased prevalence between 48% (OR = 0.52; CI 95% = 0.28-0.94) and 75% (OR = 0.25; CI 95% = 0.12-0.94), depending on its location, compared to low adherence.
