When we eat is just as important as how much we eat.

Thought-provoking studies:   When we eat is just as important as how much we eat.  The pleasure center of the brain that produces the chemical dopamine and the brain's biological clock that regulates daily physiological rhythms are linked.  High-calorie foods which bring pleasure disrupt normal feeding schedules resulting in overconsumption.  Obesity causes disease.   A related study found that limiting eating to a 10-hour window per day may help prevent chronic diseases associated with metabolic syndrome.  Metabolic syndrome is closely linked to overweight or obesity and inactivity.   Time-restricted eating involves consuming all calories within a limited period each day, in this case, within 10 hours. Earlier studies show the practice supports circadian rhythms, which are the 24-hour cycles of biological actions that affect most of...

EVOO consumption can protect against mental decline

Results of a new study by researchers at Temple University show that consuming extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) can protect the brain against different forms of mental decline.  This study was conducted on lab mice using total polyphenol count of 253 mg/kg.   The results show that EVOO can guard against frontotemporal dementia.  In frontotemporal dementia parts of the brain shrink.  Frontal and temporal lobes of the brain are areas associated with personality, behavior and language.   Previous research also showed that EVOO consumption can preserve memory and protect the brain against Alzheimer’s disease. While all of these studies were done in animal models, researchers have already found enough evidence that extra virgin olive oil can benefit humans as well.  Domenico...

Greek Olive Oil Fights Breast Cancer Cells

Another groundbreaking study lead by Professor El Sayed at the University of Louisiana showed that oleocanthal, a naturally occurring compound found only in premium, high phenol olive oil, reduced the recurrence of HER2 dependent breast cancer as well as decreasing the size of other types of breast cancer tumors that appear after treatment. El Sayed’s group discovered that a daily dosage of oleocanthal, significantly fewer mice developed recurrent tumors in comparison with the control group, and those that did develop more tumors had much smaller ones.  In a follow-up study, researchers also found that oleocanthal combined with a conventional breast cancer treatment may work better than drugs alone while reducing the required dose of the medication to ¼ of the original dose (1). Siddique and...
