“…Avocado oil linked to anti-ageing…”

“..Avocado oil may have anti-ageing properties like those attributed to olive oil, say researchers.

Fat pressed from the exotic fruit could be a potent weapon against conditions such as heart disease and cancer, it is claimed.

Avocado oil is similar in composition to olive oil, consumption of which is associated with unusually low levels of chronic disease in some Mediterranean countries.

New research conducted in Mexico, the world’s largest avocado producer, has now demonstrated its power to combat destructive rogue oxygen molecules.

These unstable “free radicals” wreak havoc in the body, triggering chain reactions that destroy cell membranes, proteins and even DNA.

The phenomenon is one of the prime drivers of ageing and believed to play a major role in damage to arteries and cancer…”

    Contrary to this announcement, much quoted research shows that vegetable oils [ being extracts and not ingested in close association with other parts of the plant matter ] all inhibit important action of the blood vessels to maintain health.
    For healthy individuals [ usually young if on a Western diet ] some advocada is OK but delinitely not for most aging western diet omnivores who will have accumulated blood vessel damage.
    Advocado is particularly bad ifor them and its oil extract should be avoided.
