The Mini MED Study: Foods from the Mediterranean Diet and Health

This study plans to learn more about how consuming a diet with foods typical to a Mediterranean Diet such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables in a Western-style diet compares to eating a typical Western-style diet. This study will look at how diet affects overall health including risk factors for heart disease, gut health and inflammation as well as underlying mechanisms linking whole food to health. Findings from this study will potentially inform effective dietary recommendations and interventions, thereby reducing chronic disease in humans.
