It has been established that the inhabitants of Crete manifest the lowest mortality indices with respect to cardiovascular diseases and cancer. For Cretans, the secret to longevity and good health is very simple. They eat anything that their rich soil produces and consume a lot of olive oil. In a recent study published in the August issue of Neurology, a lower incidence for stroke with higher olive oil use was observed. When cooking or choosing a salad dressing, follow Popeye's lead and fall in love with olive oil.
