    Bellucci Premium, a Producer of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Issues a Statement Regarding the Effects of Olive Oil on Prostate Cancer

    Bellucci Premium comments on the role of olive oil in stopping the progression of prostate cancer, following an article that details the research.

    On June 29, Bellucci Premium, a producer of extra virgin olive oil, reacts to a recent study on olive oil and its effect on the health of prostate cancer patients.

    A June 17th article on the Olive Oil Times titled “Replacing Some Carbs with Healthy Oils Can Slow Prostate Cancer,” reports on the findings published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine on the role of vegetable fat in the diets of prostate cancer patients. It was found that “replacing 10 percent of calories from carbohydrates with vegetable fats was associated with a 29 percent drop in the risk of lethal prostate cancer,” after diagnosis. These vegetable fats include olive oil.

    The article reported that fats in a diet do not cause harm, as long as it is the right type of fat. Monounsaturated fats that are contained in olive oil are considered a healthier, or superior, fat. Nuts are also considered to contain theses beneficial fats. Substituting olive oil for saturated fats like butter can also be used as a preventative measure to any cancer.

    Olive oil also is a great source of antioxidants, according to the article. These antioxidants provide a ‘protective element,’ according to research. Bellucci Premium, a producer of organic olive oil, recognizes these all of these benefits and embraces new studies that highlight what olive oil can do for the health of the consumer.

    Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Bellucci Premium, supports the further study of the benefits of olive oil. “Each new study furthers the reasons why eating an olive oil rich diet can improve your health,” she says. “With each new convert to the olive oil rich Mediterranean diet, we see an opportunity to enrich the lives of our consumers and give them a push to pursue a healthier lifestyle.”

    Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
