Abstract

Aims. The Mediterranean diet has long been associated with lower incidence of cardiovascular disease. Little information is available on association between high Mediterranean diet, antioxidant vitamins intake and arrhythmias. We sought to investigate the relationship between adherence to Mediterranean diet and atrial fibrillation (AF). Methods and Results. A group of 800 patients of mean age 54 ± 11 years was included in the study; 400 of them had a first detected episode of AF. Nutritional parameters were assessed by a self-administered food frequency validated questionnaire and completed by an interviewer-administered 7 days diet recall.
