HEART AND STROKE FOUNDATION GUEST APPEARANCE ON "DR. OZ"

Popular U.S. television health show features the Foundation's Dr. Marco Di Buono

TORONTO, Jan. 20 /CNW/ - The Dr. Oz Show, a nationally syndicated U.S. television health and lifestyle talk show will feature a segment on the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet with Dr. Marco Di Buono, Director of Research and spokesperson for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Dr. Di Buono, who has a PhD in Nutrition and is of Italian descent, discusses the benefits of the Mediterranean diet with Dr. Oz, who is of Turkish ancestry. 

"Italy, Greece and Turkey typically have a diet that's low in saturated fat, high in whole grains and high in vegetables and fruits.  This coupled with a traditionally active lifestyle and strong social networks, works to minimize stress, and it's ultimately very good for your heart health," says Dr. Di Buono.

The segment will appear on The Dr. Oz Show airing Friday, January 21, 2011 at 3 p.m. on CBS (WIVB Channel 16) and in Canada on CTV (Channel 8) at 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Dr. Di Buono said that the actual experience of being in the NBC studios was exciting and a bit surreal.

"The entire production staff was so helpful and made it easy to stay focused. Dr. Oz is extremely personable and easy to work with, and if they want the Heart and Stroke Foundation to come back with more health information for their viewers, I will be happy to return on HSF's behalf," he added.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation, a volunteer-based health charity, leads in eliminating heart disease and stroke and reducing their impact through the advancement of research and its application, the promotion of healthy living, and advocacy.
