Adding olive oil to your diet may help prevent an early death.

We are keeping an eye on this research.

Including olive oil in your diet may help you live longer, according to a new study by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health researchers.

The study, published online on Jan. 10, 2022, in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, discovered that persons who consumed more olive oil had a decreased risk of death during a 28-year period compared to those who consumed olive oil infrequently or never.

The researchers analyzed data from two big trials that included over 90,000 men and women. At the start of the study, all subjects were free of cardiovascular disease and cancer. Every four years, they were asked to complete dietary questionnaires. In total, 36,856 of them perished during their studies. Those who ingested the most olive oil on a daily basis — an average of more than a tablespoon — had the lowest risk of death during the study period. They possessed:

a 19% reduction in the total risk of death
a 19% reduction in the risk of cardiovascular disease
a 17 per cent reduction in the risk of cancer-related death
a 29% reduction in the chance of mortality from a neurodegenerative disorder
a 17% reduction in the chance of dying from a respiratory condition.
Olive oil may provide additional health benefits when used in place of items that include animal fat, such as butter, according to the study's authors.
