A Compound in Olive Oil May Prevent the Brain Cancer

A new research from the United Kingdom suggests that an oleic acid found in olive oil may help prevent brain cancer.olive oil may prevent brain cancer

A team of researchers tested the effects of oleic acid on living human cells and cell extracts. Having analyzed their findings, the scientists concluded that the compound inhibits the activity of a cell protein called Musashi homolog2, which stops the protein from halting the production of miR-7, and prevents the formation of the brain tumors.

Study co-author Dr. Gracjan Michlewski of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology at the University of Edinburgh says: “While we cannot yet say that olive oil in the diet helps prevent brain cancer, our findings do suggest that oleic acid can support the production of tumor-suppressing molecules in cells in the lab. Further studies could help determine the role that olive oil might have in brain health.”
