Cooking Trick STOPS Brain Cancer

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

All cancer is scary. But brain cancer might just be the most terrifying type of all.

And if you’re lucky enough to survive it… after countless rounds of chemo, radiation, and surgery… you could be faced with a long, tough road to recovery.

So your best bet is to never get brain cancer in the first place.

Fortunately, Scottish researchers have recently discovered that a common food can stop brain cancer before it starts.

And it‘s easy to incorporate into your diet every single day.

Olive oil is the cancer-busting food I’m talking about.

And for years, nutrition experts have been telling you to eat more of it because it’s good for your heart.

More recently, researchers from the University of Edinburgh wanted to see if olive oil could fight brain cancer.

For the lab study, scientists examined how oleic acid, a compound found in olive oil, affects certain proteins linked to brain tumor growth.

After exposing living human brain cells to oleic acid, the team was astonished…

The oleic acid completely stopped the growth of the cancer-causing proteins!

Researchers report oleic acid helps fight tumors because it stimulates the production of a powerful molecule that prevents the proteins from forming in the first place.

This means olive oil can prevent brain tumors before they start.

More research is coming to prove that eating olive oil has the same effects as the lab study, but I wouldn’t wait.

Olive oil is full of antioxidants that can help your body fight inflammation and neutralize free radicals — two of the key drivers behind all disease, including cancer.

You can get olive oil at your local grocery store. Be sure to choose the extra-virgin variety, as it has the highest antioxidant content.

Live well,
