  1. Olive Oil Pushes Alzheimer’s Proteins Out of BrainThe mystery of exactly how consumption of extra virgin olive oil helps reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) may lie in one component of olive oil that helps shuttle the abnormal AD proteins out of the brain, scientists are reporting in a new study. It appears in the journal ACS Chemical Neuroscience.Amal Kaddoumi and colleagues, at Univ. of Louisiana at Monroe, note that AD affects about 30 million people worldwide, but the prevalence is lower in Mediterranean countries. Scientists once attributed it to the high concentration of healthful monounsaturated fats in olive oil — consumed in large amounts in the Mediterranean diet. Newer research suggested that the actual protective agent might be a substance called oleocanthal, which has effects that protect nerve cells from the kind of damage that occurs in AD.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2013/03/olive-oil-pushes-alzheimers-proteins-out-brain
