Researchers reviewed almost 4,000 human studies on olive oil and reduction of cancer risk, selecting 46 for a more in-depth data analysis.
These studies included breast, colon, pancreatic, gastrointestinal, lung, prostate, and urinary tract cancers.
Results: versus the lowest intake of olive oil, those with the highest olive oil intake had a 31% reduced risk of developing any kind of cancer.
Olive oil is an anti-inflammatory antioxidant.
Olive oil contains a compound called oleocanthal that can kill cancerous cells but does not harm healthy cells.
