Breaking News: Intake of Olive Oil could reduce Cancer risk
Saturday, May 30, 2009
The olive tree, Olea europaea, is native to the Mediterranean basin and parts of Asia Minor. The fruit and compression-extracted oil have a wide range of therapeutic and culinary applications. Olive oil also constitutes a major component of the "Mediterranean diet." The chief active components of olive oil include oleic acid, phenolic constituents, and squalene. The main phenolics include hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol, and oleuropein, which occur in highest levels in virgin olive oil and have demonstrated antioxidant activity. Antioxidants are believed to be responsible for a number of olive oil's biological activities.

Oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid, has shown activity in cancer prevention, while squalene has also been identified as having anti cancer effects. Olive oil consumption has benefit for colon cancer and breast cancer prevention. The oil has been widely studied for its effects on coronary heart disease (CHD), specifically for its ability to reduce blood pressure and LDL cholesterol. Antimicrobial activity of hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol, and oleuropein has been demonstrated against several strains of bacteria implicated in intestinal and respiratory infections.

    This is good news. The more you can prevent having to go through mesothelioma chemotherapy treatments the better off your body will be. But of course that's my opinion. I wonder if the whole pH diet works as well. I hear it does, and it would be interesting to see if a patient was willing to try the pH diet and other remedies to get rid of their cancer.
