NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Published on The New England Journal of Medicine's Web site earlier this year, the first major clinical trial shows the Mediterranean diet can prevent about 30 percent of heart attacks, strokes and deaths from heart disease. In conjunction with Open Road Media, Hearst Magazines is releasing a new ebook titled Delicious Mediterranean Diet Recipes. Hearst's editors have curated the best recipes and tips from the archives of the most popular magazines including Country Living, Good Housekeeping, Redbook, Eating Light, Quick & Simple and Woman's Day to create this must-have guide for preparing the perfect holiday meal.
