A new study has found that extra virgin olive oils (EVOO) can be used to kill cancer cells. They were made public January 23, 2015.
Paul Breslin (a Rutgers University nutritional scientist), David Foster (a Hunter College biologist) and Onica L. LeGendre (a Hunter College chemist) discovered that oleocanthal can cause cancer cells to become immune to their own enzymes.
Oleocanthal, a chemical in Extra Virgin Olive Oil(EVOO), can be described as a chemical known as 'aloe Vera Aldehyde. Oleocanthal can also be made from olive pulp when it is crushed.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil has many compounds with a 6-carbon ring arrangement. These substances are collectively called "phenolics" and are used in Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
A range of inflammations.
Development and formation of cancer.
Researchers discovered that cancer cells could die almost instantly when oleocanthal was used. Researchers found that oleocanthal almost instantly caused cancer cells to die.
Numerous studies show that oleocanthal can cause cancer in the developing body.
An upstream phenomenon may exist that could be called a "book phenomenon" and needs to be clarified. This involves opening the lysosome and releasing toxic chemicals inside the cell.
David Foster and Onica laGendre studied the breast, prostate, as well as pancreatic cells. They demonstrated that LMP can kill them, but it did not kill three types of healthy cells.
These studies confirmed that Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains anti-inflammatory, antioxidant properties. They also revealed the potential for extraordinary health in diets rich olive oil like the Mediterranean diet.
