Olive oil consumption improves prostate cancer outcomes

A plant-based Mediterranean diet can aid in the treatment of some common forms of cancer, according to research out of Brown University.

Dr Mary Flynn, Associate Professor of Medicine at Brown University, led the research. This morning she spoke to 3AW Breakfast about her findings.

She said that the study found a plant-based Mediterranean diet, which is high in extra virgin olive oil, halted the progression of prostate cancer in men who had been diagnosed with less severe cases of the disease.

A diet high in extra virgin olive oil was also found to improve cancer outcomes for breast cancer patients.
