The diet—which is chock full of vegetables, fruits, nuts, fish and monounsaturated fats—has previously been confirmed to reduce the risk of stroke and other cardiovascular disease by 30 percent, according to the New England Journal of Medicine. As for this most recent study, researchers analyzed the diets of more than 5,000 Italian women and found that those who most scrupulously followed the Mediterranean diet had a 57 percent reduced risk of uterine cancer.
