Less Than A Tablespoon Of Olive Oil Lowers Death Risk, Study Says

Adding less than a tablespoon of olive oil to their diet lowers a person’s risk for death from heart or lung disease, as well as brain disorders and cancer, a study published yesterday by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found.  Compared to participants who rarely or never consumed olive oil, those who added one-half tablespoon or more to their diet daily had a 19% lower risk for death from heart disease, the data showed.  They also were 17% less likely to die from cancer and 18% less likely to die from lung disease.
