Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the leading causes of death in many developed countries. It is known to be linked with smoking, sedentary lifestyle, alcohol intake, and food patterns. Food consumption has tremendous influence on CVD risk and protection. Thus, the paper describes two diet patterns—Traditional French diet and the Mediterranean diet—and explains the relationship between characteristics of each diet to CVD risk. Traditional French diet is high in sugar, salt, ultra-processed food, and alcohol intake, and the paper demonstrates the potential risks and mechanisms on CVD. In addition, the Mediterranean diet is proved to reduce CVD risk and can serve as a protective role in CVD prevention.
