Eating Olive Oil & Greens Almost Halves Risk Of Heart Disease

An article in today’s Live In The Now covers 2 clinical studies that show dramatic health benefits from consuming olive oil and fresh green vegetables.

One study found that “consuming at least an ounce of extra virgin olive oil each day lowered the risk of a cardiac event by 44% compared to those who consumed a half-ounce or less.”

They also found that “women with the highest daily consumption (one serving or about 2 ounces) of raw vegetables such as spinach or endive had a 46% lower risk of developing heart disease compared with women eating less than 2 servings per week.”

The best way to eat olive oil is cold, in salad dressing. And it you have it over fresh greens, well, you get double the benefit.
