More Evidence that Olive Oil and Vegetables Help Your Heart

A new study has determined that women who eat more olive oil and leafy vegetables are less likely to develop heart disease.

Women who eat at least one serving of leafy vegetables each day are more than 40 percent less likely to develop heart disease. And three tablespoons per day of olive oil also led to a 40 percent decreased likelihood of a heart disease diagnosis.

According to Reuters:

"This is not the first study to link olive oil or vegetables to good heart health. Most famously, the traditional Mediterranean diet -- rich in vegetables and monounsaturated fats from olive oil and nuts ... has been tied to a decreased risk of heart disease."
