Default Mediterranean diet not all it's cracked up to be

What's not to like?

Dr. Caldwell Blakeman Esselstyn Jr., the author of the best seller Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure, who promotes a vegan diet and does not allow olive oil.

His views and those of another promoter of a very-low-fat diet, Dr. Dean Ornish, president of the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute, have influenced many to try to become vegan. Former President Bill Clinton, interviewed on CNN, said Dr. Esselstyns and Dr. Ornishs writings helped convince him that he could reverse his heart disease in that way.

Dr. Esselstyn said those on the Mediterranean diet still had heart attacks and strokes. So, he said, the Mediterranean diet was able to create disease in people who otherwise did not have it.

Misleading Research

"The New England Journal of Medicine article entitled Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease with a Mediterranean Diet is misleading and inappropriately titled. It should read Promotion of Cardiovascular Disease with a /Mediterranean and Control Diet.

All three dietary groups had almost equal facility promoting the growth and clinical appearance of cardiovascular disease in those who at study onset did not have this illness. The single exception was the control group which had a significantly higher stroke rate; however at baseline, they also appeared to have a greater BMI, waist circumference, hypertension, anti hypertensive agents and diuretics suggesting a cohort at greater risk for strokes.

Earlier this month the British Medical Journal updated the randomized Sydney Heart Study, which confirms the findings of this present Spanish study that the addition of oils worsened the outlook for cardiovascular disease.

By way of contrast, our small plant based nutrition study (devoid of 10 food items contained in the Spanish Study Control diet group known to injure endothelial cells) took patients with established advanced cardiovascular disease and not only halted disease progression but was able to demonstrate disease reversal. We will shortly publish an expanded version confirming our original findings.

The epidemiological ultimate confirmation of the power of plant based nutrition to prevent cardiovascular disease is best demonstrated in T. Colin Campbells China Study. In a rural province in China over a three year period examination of over 250,000 death certificates, not one death was attributable to cardiovascular disease.

Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D."

Would you be willing to share with us the lentil soup with Swidden chard and wheat berry salad recipe. They sound delicious.

Well certainly appears that you are,
U having been making a lot of Med diet posts, miss leading IMO that is healthiest diet when in fact it is not.

do try to pick healthy choices.
that's fine but at the same there is enough scientific evidence that anyone with cardio vascular disease that consumes oils is on their way to increased problems by damaging their endothelium* linings.

I wouldn't say anything if you cautioned your comments with that info.

-----

*endothelium
The endothelium is the thin layer of cells that lines the interior surface of blood vessels and lymphatic vessels,[1] forming an interface between circulating blood or lymph in the lumen and the rest of the vessel wall. The cells that form the endothelium are called endothelial cells. Endothelial cells in direct contact with blood are called vascular endothelial cells, whereas those in direct contact with lymph are known as lymphatic endothelial cells.

Vascular endothelial cells line the entire circulatory system, from the heart to the smallest capillaries. These cells have very distinct and unique functions that are paramount to vascular biology. These functions include fluid filtration, such as in the glomeruli of the kidney, blood vessel tone, hemostasis, neutrophil recruitment, and hormone trafficking. Endothelium of the interior surfaces of the heart chambers are called endocardium.
