Health benefits of extra virgin olive oil
"May your medicine be your food and food your medicine"
30% of the energy in this diet comes from healthy fats such as olive oil, while the intake of saturated fats doesn’t exceed 7%. In fact, populations based on the Mediterranean diet have significantly lower than average incidence of coronary heart disease and cancer.
There are numerous studies that link the inverse incidence between olive oil consumption and breast, gastric, colon, endometrial and ovarian cancer. The most extensive and prestigious study of those that have been carried out is PREDIMED.

Age of onset in olive oil consumption
When the child is six months old, the olive oil intake in the diet can begin. Olive oil is the one that contains very similar fats to those present in breast milk and it’s also the easiest to digest, apart from the fact it contains excellent qualities, as we have seen.
An adequate amount is 20 to 30gr per day, which is equivalent to about 2 or 3 tablespoons daily.
