Comparative studies on nutritional constituents and blood pressure (BP) levels were performed in two rural areas--in Japan (Ohda) and Spain (Navas)--with low incidences of ischemic heart disease. BP levels of both populations were relatively low, probably resulting from potassium- and magnesium-rich Mediterranean diets in Navas and from fish protein-rich Japanese diets in Ohda assessed by 24-h urine analyses according to the World Health Organization (WHO) Cardiovascular Diseases and Alimentary Comparison (CARDIAC) Study.
