I know everybody is different, but when something works for me, like a good novel, I want to share it with somebody else.

Like most people who care about what they eat, I take in quite a bit of Olive Oil every day.


Then I picked up that in order to really reap the benefits, it has to be organic and it must come from a single source.

Mine was a simple Extra Virgin and it came from the "European Union", which meant it came from a variety of sources,  and processed with olives which were probably out of date.

Extra virgin olive oil is loaded with antioxidants, like oleocanthal, which has been linked to cancer cell death.

That much I didn't know - read more.


We all know that Olive oil contains nutrients that help with inflammation - is generally good for the cardivascular system,  does not contribute to weight gain. and may even reduce diabetes 2.

I did put on a little weight which I could have done with anyway and was probably down to the fact that I am consuming about a litre of the stuff each week.

I sprinke it on eveerything - even my cereal which I take with almond milk.


And an added benefit to the cancer news is that my getting older joints - just feel - wait for it - OILED.

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is amazing.

But only from a single, known source.
