Now, the newest study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, reports about scientists in Spain who followed their research subjects for 13.4 years, and proved that the Mediterranean diet of eating fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds and plenty of extra virgin olive oil, really does lower the risk of death!   "The authors concluded, "To our knowledge, this is the first prospective study to show that olive oil consumption reduces the risk of mortality... our findings provide further evidence on the effects that one of the key components of the Mediterranean diet has on mortality and support the need to preserve the habitual use of olive oil within this healthy dietary pattern." Nutrition experts recommend adding one to two tablespoons of fresh-pressed extra virgin olive oil (post-cooking to prevent degradation of the oil) to your meals each day to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease."

The jury is in - Olive oil lowers mortality by a quarter and heart disease by nearly one-half
