Eating Bread With Olive Oil Could Cut Your Heart Attack Risk In 6 Weeks by sammiestar: 5:57pm On Dec 09, 2014
Yes! You read it right. Eating your
bread with olive Oil could cut your
heart attack risk in just 6 weeks.
New tests reveals that regular
consumption of olive oil
dramatically improved chemical
signals in the body linked
to coronary artery disease.

A study which was led by Glasgow
University confirms the health
benefits of a cornerstone of the
Mediterranean diet, especially for
those who don’t normally eat olive
In a report published in The
American Journal of Clinical
Nutrition 20mls was added a day,
about four teaspoons to the diet of
healthy adults, which is the amount
used in bread during a meal. But a
range of signals for heart disease
measured in the urine improved in
only six weeks,

Dr Bill Mullen, of the Institute of
Cardiovascular and Medical
Sciences, said:
‘If we are able to identify the early
signatures of diseases before they
have had a chance to take hold we
can start to treat them before they
become a problem requiring costly
medical intervention.
‘It is the first time this technique
has been applied from a nutritional
perspective to try to get to the
bottom of which food or what
ingredient is truly responsible for
health benefits.’
Dr Emilie Combet of the School of
Medicine at Glasgow University,
‘What we found was that regardless
of the phenolic content of the oil,
there was a positive effect on CAD

‘Any olive oil, low or high in
phenolics, seems to be beneficial.
‘Our study was a supplementation
study. If people in the UK replaced
part of their fat intake with olive oil,
it could have an ever greater effect
on reducing the risk of heart
The changes detected were subtle,
and conventional markers of heart
disease such as cholesterol were
Dr Mullen added:
‘This is one reason why is it
difficult to convince people to
change their diet, they can never
see an effect.

‘We have shown, for the first time,
how proteomics can successfully be
used to measure the health effect of
food in a small study group after
only six weeks.

‘Currently measures of markers like
cholesterol can only tell you if you
are at risk of developing a disease,
not if you have it or if you don't.
‘What proteomic analysis of urine
can do is measure if you are at the
very early stages of disease
development, before any symptoms
are present, further measurements
after lifestyle changes or drug
treatment can then show the effects
of treatment.’
Olive oil contains omega-6 fats, a
form of 'healthy' polyunsaturates
which blocks the body's response to
inflammation in chronic conditions
such as heart disease and arthritis.

With this, I suppose including Olive
oil in our meals won't be such a bad
thing. If you have any other
advantages of Olive oil in the
improvement of our body please
