    ..Further studies are necessary to investigate whether a MedDiet could have a preventive role in cataract surgery. ..
  3. Guo X, Tresserra Rimbau A, Estruch R, Martínez González M, Medina Remón A, Fitó M, et al. Polyphenol Levels Are Inversely Correlated with Body Weight and Obesity in an Elderly Population after 5 Years of Follow Up (The Randomised PREDIMED Study). Nutrients. 2017;9: pubmed publisher
    ..408; 95% CI: -0.788 to -0.028, p = 0.036) after adjustments for potential confounders. To conclude, a greater polyphenol intake may thus contribute to reducing body weight in elderly people at high cardiovascular risk. ..
