I drew this sketch yesterday while waiting on something that was taking a while. I had been thinking of what topic I wanted to put on this blog next and realized it was right before my eyes. I save empty olive oil bottles to make candle holder displays with, and so they were sitting there, some with candles, some without and I thought "aha" that's it--next topic. As Registered Nurse, I know the benefits of olive oil but I don't know if the world at large does. So this post is to remedy that. This is a watercolor sketch I drew using inktense watercolors and acrylic and it is on 11 x 14 paper in one of my sketchbooks . I signed it, photographed it, uploaded it and posted it as is true of all art on this blog and any blog of mine.
THE HEALTH CARE EFFECTS OF OLIVE OIL have been studied several times by National Institute of Health which gives grant money to scientific researchers and approves their topics. I am including some quotes from the studies that concern most of population in either preventing or curing certain diseases. I am numbering them for reference :
1) Olive oil is good for your heart: "Our results indicate that substitution of oils used in a typical American diet with extra virgin olive oil in overweight and obese older adults may have cardio-metabolic and immunological health benefits. This trial was registered at clinicaltrials.gov as NCT01903304."http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26251666
2) Olive oil in preventing colorectal cancer: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26303826 with quote :"Several studies have demonstrated that polyphenols form olive oil, lycopene, resveratrol and capsaicin have multiple anticancer properties affecting several metabolic pathways involved in cancerogenesis, apoptosis, and metastasis in CRC cell lines."
3) "Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system because of its anti-inflammatory properties. "..."Premature atherosclerosis in HIV-infected patients is associated with chronic infection by itself and adverse effects of antiretroviral treatment (ART).... The objective of this study was to determine whether the consumption of EVOO improves inflammation and atherosclerosis biomarkers in HIV-infected patients receiving ART. ...CONCLUSIONS Our exploratory study suggests that EVOO consumption could lower hsCRP in patients on ART."
4) Olive oil figures into a healthy diet: "Cluster 3: healthy/diet, including 29 % of the participants, with a higher consumption of olive oil, fish, fruits, nuts, vegetables and lower alcohol consumption."with results of 'had lower LDL-cholesterol levels and clinical blood pressure."http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26268844..
5) "Monoglycerides of fatty acids/olive oil organogels" are being tested in cosmetics: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26263497
