Podcast 165: The Mediterranean diet’s salutary interaction with risk-conferring genes

Running time: 14 minutes.

A study in Diabetes Care shows that people at higher genetic risk for diabetes and cardiovascular complications had a relatively lower stroke risk when they adhered to a Mediterranean diet. Dr. Jose Ordovas, the study’s senior author, is our guest for this discussion about the interaction between genes and diet — and its implications even for those without risky genetics.
