A new study shows that the Southern European Atlantic Diet may help protect the heart.

A new study shows that the Southern European Atlantic Diet may help protect the heart. Researchers at the University of Porto Medical School in Porto, Portugal, report that residents of northern Portugal and the Galicia region in the northwest of Spain have very low rates of death from heart disease.
The researchers studied 820 people who suffered a heart attack and 2,196 people who never had a heart attack, all living in the same region. People whose diets adhered most closely to the Southern European Atlantic Diet (SEAD) were at a 33% lower risk of heart attack compared to those with eating patterns which followed it the least. The SEAD consists of fish, red meat, pork, dairy products, legumes, vegetables, potatoes, and wine with meals.
