Swedish Research Highlights Health Benefits Of A Scandinavian Diet

May 29, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A “Nordic” diet rich in berries, root vegetables, legumes, whole grains, cabbage, rapeseed (canola) oil, nuts, poultry and fish reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, a Swedish study has found. Participants in the research followed either the Nordic diet or a diet that included butter, fewer berries and vegetables, and more red meat and white bread. The Nordic diet lowered cholesterol levels and inflammation associated with pre-diabetes, researchers reported.
