Yes! You read that right! In what seems like a ground-breaking news, a team of researchers at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences at Rutgers are impressed and blown away by the results, which has serious implications when it comes to how the public may soon view simple nutrition as a weapon against cancer –
a simple compound in olive oil is capable of killing cancer cells ‘within 30 minutes to an hour’ — and it doesn’t harm healthy cells.
The compound utilized, known as oleocanthal, has previously been identified as an ‘anti-cancer’ agent, but the true extent of its ability to fight carcinogenic cells was virtually unknown. Several studies exist on the compound’s other benefits as well, which include its potential effects on:
- Inflammation (there could be other ways to keep your skin healthy)
- Tumor suppression
- Age-related disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
This new study, which has found that this compound can truly kill cancer cells in under an hour, may be the most amazing. Specifically, the study found that cancer cells exposed to oleocanthal were dying in a matter of 30-60 minutes — all thanks to the way in which the olive oil compound uses the enzymes of the cancer cells. Puncturing the insides of the cancer cells where the cell ‘waste’ is held, the compound wreaks absolute havoc on the infected cells.
There is no doubt that mega pharmaceutical companies will certainly swoop in to patent pharmaceutical technologies that attempt to mimic the behaviors of oleocanthal (with a list of side effects and reduced effectiveness), but the key here is that for virtually nothing you can start to experience the benefits of this key olive oil compound yourself: just pick up some high quality organic olive oil at your local grocery store.
