How do we know that a Nordic diet is beneficial?
In spring 2008, a clinical study (NorDiet) was conducted in which 88 people were given a specially developed menu to eat for 6 weeks.
The results of the study showed that the Nordic diet reduces bad cholesterol (LDL) and also influences other markers that indicate a higher or lower risk of heart and vascular disease.
