Dr Eduard Escrich lead a team of researchers from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona on a study concerning the impact of fats on the body and especially oily fats such as corn oil, sunflower oil and pure olive oil.
Scientists of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona Breast Cancer Study Multidisciplinary Group have been studying breast cancer and it’s link to fats such as from saturated sources and unsaturated sources like pure olive oil. The scientists have managed to prove the restricting properties that pure olive oil has on cancerous cells.
Not all oils are good. Corn oil is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids which aggravates the tumor and speeds up the development process. Quite a scary thought considering that almost all processed goods contain some form of corn oil. No wonder breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in western countries responsible for 16% of all female cancers. Still, contrary to popular belief, men can also develop breast cancer. Doctors are trying to increase awareness of this fact in a effort to increase the number of men who come for an annual check-up for breast cancer symptoms.
These results showing that pure olive oil benefits fight breast cancer symptoms give scientists hope in the quest for finding a permanent cure for breast cancer. Until then it seems that a Mediterranean diet is the best way of preventing breast cancer symptoms from showing in both women and men.
This is just one of the many pure olive oil benefits and just one reason to go on a Mediterranean diet.
Just think about it. It tastes good, it helps fight breast cancer and a whole other list of healthy issues and risks. It can help you lose weight if you decide to also exercise just a little. Did I mention that it’s yummy?
So don’t just stand there and wait around. Pick today as the changing point in your life. Chose a healthier diet, exercise a little each day and live healthier. Eat well, live long and enjoy life more.
