-- back now -- the doctors have heard a lot about it the Mediterranean.
-- -- -- what is it how do we do it and virtually Eric this is actually one of the most important segments that we're doing right now.
New England to our own medicine study coming from Spain looking at 7500 patients follow -- five years and this the first time so real landmark study.
That shows Mediterranean diet.
Can reduce the risk of heart disease by 30%.
That's significant because all this is stat means that we've been giving to patients only helps them by 25%.
All these studies about diet and food and nutrition and hard.
Are all have been observational study except this one which is a really good randomized study and I'd like this.
Doctor Martin and Martinez from Spain -- done an amazing job now what are we talking about yes we're talking about.
That extra virgin -- -- boy of about four tables when I checked we're talking about salmon fish nuts are absolutely great for you.
Fruits and vegetables.
And really replace and push all that red -- and then process me.
Out of your.
Diet what you do is you don't want to have a drastic change you wanna do very slowly.
But this is a very significant and exciting one and I think I I cars a lot of people to really start doing this fish.
Chicken and Turkey is that it's something our hearings Espana and you're not drinking red -- where I'm a glass of red -- daily part of that is absolutely don't think senator is that okay.
Well let me took -- the -- little more than study.
Actually had three groups in the first group.
They took people these -- people that are high risk of heart disease they have high blood pressure high cholesterol many were on Staten drugs they they had family history they smoked.
And they said what do we do to improve things for one group they gave -- -- -- hazelnut -- the second group -- gave -- olive oil to.
And the third group they said we want you want -- low fat diet.
The -- the third group which is the control group by the way there is a problem with that which is they didn't get exactly the low fat diet -- -- supposed to get.
And they didn't get the fish that the first and second group got.
So it's not a perfect study but I actually like you also the same as David does I think it ends it -- more evidence to the fact.
That fish that Omega threes.
That -- that notes that olive oil and even more important Jamie cutting down on that red meat cutting down on that -- like we said in the first segment.
Eating more fish and poultry.
All of that improves life -- and decreases your -- -- in this study it was stroke it was mainly stroke that you -- less risk of but other studies have shown less heart disease I think that this Mediterranean diet is -- -- One thing -- you -- you can't.
To have chicken -- -- to say that the need.
Not you don't want salted nuts we'll get unsalted now yes it's -- -- very what's important about this.
Is that it actually stop this study in the middle because the result was really really significant.
That's really important this is not one of these observational studies that were bringing to you it's a real deal and I want people to pay attention to this.
Start adding not dipping -- bread in the olive oil.
Pat are able to tour south pad knots and stick to healthy diet that's more important and I -- I'm more important it taken so this happens I'm doctor all the way again cut the stress if you can.
We're gonna go we have been a topic I'm particularly interest in error to.
But thank you both on that the Mediterranean diet for you.
