A Lund University study of 166 Swedish adults has shed some light on the up-and-coming New Nordic Diet, which reportedly fends off cardiovascular disease. Subjects who ate berries, vegetables, lean meat, whole grains, canola oil, low-fat dairy, and three servings of cold-water fish a week ended up with lower levels of “bad” and higher levels of “good” cholesterol than those who ate more red meat and white bread, less produce, and butter instead of canola oil. The Nordic eaters also showed less inflammation associated withpre-diabetes. Eat betterconquer new worlds.
