Washington: Researchers have claimed that a gene variant, strongly linked with the development of type 2 diabetes, seems to interact with Mediterranean diet - featuring olive oil, fish, complex carbohydrates and nuts - to prevent stroke.Researchers from the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (USDA HNRCA) at Tufts University and from the CIBER Fisiopatologia de la Obesidad y Nutricion in Spain set out to investigate whether genetics contribute to the cardiovascular benefits seen in the Prevencion con Dieta Mediterranea (PREDIMED) trial.Based in Spain, the randomized, controlled trial enrolled more than 7,000 men and women assigned to either a Mediterranean or low fat control diet and monitored them for cardiovascular disease, stroke and heart attack for almost five years.
