EVOO Linked with Lower Risk of Premature Death

EVOO Linked with Lower Risk of Premature Death

A recent study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found a higher consumption of olive oil may lower risk of premature death . From the article:

    “The researchers used health data collected between 1990 and 2018 for 60,582 women     participating in the Nurses’ Health Study and 31,801 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up     Study. All participants were free of cardiovascular disease or cancer at the beginning of the study     and completed dietary questionnaires every four years. During the study period, 36,856 people     died.

    Participants were asked how often they used olive oil in salad dressings, added to food or bread,     or in baking or frying. According to the findings, people in the highest category of olive oil     consumption (more than seven grams per day) had 19% lower risk of total and cardiovascular     disease mortality, 17% lower risk of cancer mortality, 29% lower risk of neurodegenerative     mortality, and 18% lower risk of respiratory mortality, compared with those who never or rarely     consumed olive oil.”

Apollo Olive Oil is one of the few olive oils available that is certified to be 100% real extra virgin olive oil.
