Epidemiological studies have suggested a lower risk of morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease associated with a Mediterranean dietary pattern. There is limited evidence from interventional studies, but a large recent study supports a beneficial effect. It is most likely that the beneficial effect is attributable to several components in this dietary pattern rather than a single component. In conclusion, it seems reasonable to recommend a Mediterranean diet to persons with known or high risk of cardiovascular disease.
