Olive oil cuts risk of breast cancer


The fight against breast cancer may begin in the kitchen. A new study suggests that women can dramatically reduce their risk of the disease by following a version of the Mediterranean diet that goes heavy on extra-virgin olive oil.

Data from a large, randomized clinical trial show that women who did so were 62 percent less likely to have breast cancer diagnosed compared with women who were simply asked to reduce the overall amount of fat in their diets. The results were published last week in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.
