A heart-healthy diet has been the cornerstone of CVD prevention for decades. As nutritional science continues to evolve, we are beginning to understand more about the cardiovascular benefits of certain foods.Patients often seek health and nutrition advice from GPs, however due to constantly emerging data on nutrition, health and well-being the current recommendations can often be unclear.
