'Useful, attractive and captivating' Olive Oil Times

Is it true that two tablespoons of olive oil a day can halve your risk of heart disease and help sustain weight loss?

Can olive oil kill cancer cells, fight Alzheimer's Disease, revive a failing heart and even turn off bad genes?

The Olive Oil Diet takes an authoritative look at the science behind the headlines. Recent studies have shown that a diet based around olive oil will significantly improve your health, well-being and vitality. It will also help you maintain a healthy weight and avoid heart disease, stroke and diseases such as cancer, diabetes and dementia.

All olive oils are not the same, however. This book also explores the effects of diverse varieties of olives, growing techniques and oil-production methods on the health-giving properties - and flavour - of different oils. With over 100 delicious recipes, it points the way to those extra virgin oils and food combinations that are likely to do you the most good.

This fascinating journey to the heart of the Mediterranean reveals the extraordinary health secrets of nature's original superfood.
