    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Mr. Nowicki is completely missing the point that an incremental addition of olive oil to whatever a base diet it was, has reduced the risk! He has also missed the fact that an incremental addition of olive oil worked better than an incremental addition of nuts and seeds to a base diet!

    This cannot be changed by the nature of the base diet. Incidentally 37% fat is quite low fat for Spain, they do eat fatty food. It doesn't really matter what the baseline was.

    You add olive oil - your risk goes down. Period.

    Mind you, his pointing out of the authors' unsaviory connections with the corporate establishment are interesting but does not constitute a scientific criticism, only a warning hint that the authors may have fudged something. It does not prove that they did.
