Today is Wisdom Wednesday at Aortic Hope!
We had a wonderful Live Event with Dr. Stacy Fisher during September and one of the things she discussed with us had to do with diet. Dr. Fisher was sharing that she recommends you discussing with your physician their thoughts on the DASH and Mediterranean Diets.
Today we will be sharing the Mediterranean diet with you. Please remember this is a conversation topic and articles shared do not necessarily reflect the opinions or recommendation from Aortic Hope.
Check out this article from the Mayo Clinic about how "Interest in the diet began in the 1950s when it was noted that heart disease was not as common in Mediterranean countries as it was in the U.S. Since then, numerous studies have confirmed that the Mediterranean diet helps prevent heart disease and stroke."
