There is no study that has been able to analyze equal sample size in Spain, with data collected over a long period, from 2015 to 2018, and with information that allows comparative analysis by type of activity, diet and even environment environmental-regional, underlines.

In a preliminary analysis, made after signing the agreement, there are variations in the risk of having a heart attack of up to six times more, according to habits and the geographical area .
