Olive Oil Fights Breast Cancer

Since I’m Her2 positive this interests me.  On one hand I think….wow I should eat more olive oil.  On the other hand I am a bit angry because I think…..”I do eat a lot of olive oil.”  I cook probably 90% of my food with olive oil!  Oh well.  I’ve thinkcooking it makes it rancid so maybe the trick is to eat it uncooked (per the article on it being cold pressed).  Maybe I’ll need to go to a spoonful of plain olive oil a day…..lol! 

Here’s a bit of the article:

“Researchers from the University of Granada in Spain wondered why a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil appeared to lower breast cancer risk in some studies but not in others. They theorized that the answer could depend on the type of cancer. Their research found that two chemicals in olive oil—lignans and secoiridoids—block the HER2 protein that causes breast cancer tumors to grow more rapidly than other forms of the disease.”
