A lot has been written and said about the nutritional properties and health benefits of olive oil and, though new research is acknowledging and confirming its good points by the day, much ground has yet to be explored. Olive oil is the chief source of fat in the Mediterranean diet, an eating pattern whose healthy benefits have always been known to the mediterranean peoples.
A host of studies in recent years have demonstrated that this diet, which equates with a particular lifestyle, is healthy, balanced and good for everyone. The fact is that the olive tree is part and parcel of the history of the mediterranean peoples.
It is therefore a pleasure for us to present this publication of the International Olive Council: “Olive Oil Health Notes” in which our chief aim is to provide simple, up-to-the-minute information about the health benefits of olive oil. This pubblication is free of charge and everybody can download it from the digital edition of the IOC library. You need only to go on the front page of the IOC website. Click on News, than choose pubblications / digital edition and follow the instructions that you will receive directly by the website; or reach directly this link: https://www.internationaloliveoil.org/product/olive-oil-health-notes/
It is hard to discuss certain subjects in terms that are easy to understand for the layman but still interesting for health professionals, but we hope we have taken a big step forward in doing so and that we have managed to make this publication pleasant reading for everyone.
Enjoy you reading
