Mediterranean diet and Cardiovascular Health

Ramon Estruch, a Spanish researcher on benefits of the Mediterranean diet, will speak in London at a Symposium on Cardiovascular Health on 5th December 2013.

Registration and abstract submission is now open for the Symposium.

Professor Estruch's theme will be outcomes of his multi-centre study reporting that, for patients who already are at high cardiovascular risk, a Mediterranean diet without calorie restriction is more effective than a low fat diet in reducing the occurrence of serious cardiovascular events.

His findings were published in the New England Journal of Medicine at the end of February 2013.

This event is one of a series of Symposia on Cardiovascular Health being held by the CVRT at the rooms of the Medical Society of London, one of the oldest continuing medical societies in the world.
