Extra virgin olive oil increases life expectancy

30 September 2019

One of the findings of a study on animals carried out by the University of Granada is that, compared with other oils such as fish oil or sunflower oil, a regular intake of extra-virgin olive oil increases life expectancy.

The results were striking: those fed on extra-virgin olive oil had a longer than average lifespan and survival curve than those fed on sunflower oil.

The study was published in the prestigious Journals of Gerontology, Series A: Biological Sciences, the oldest gerontology journal in the United States, dating back to 1946.
