MedicalResearch: What recommendations do you have for future research as a result of this study?
Answer: Our study reinforces the health benefits of olive oil in a context of a Mediterranean diet in individuals at high cardiovascular risk. Further research should focus on analysing if similar associations exist in other populations, such as younger healthy individuals or individuals living in regions where the intake of olive oil is lower.
