Researchers asked more than 4,000 women between the ages of 60 and 80 to follow one of three diets, a Mediterranean diet infused with extra-virgin olive oil. a Mediterranean diet rich in nuts, or a low-fat diet. After 5 years, the extra virgin olive oil dieters had a 68% reduced risk for breast cancer. The Mediterranean diet is also low in meat, dairy and sugar.
