Abstract

Michael J Hill Memorial Lecture 319 1 1 1 2 1 R W Owen , R Haubner ,GWurtele , W E Hull , B Spiegelhalder and H Bartsch Epidemiologic studies conducted in the latter part of the phenyl propionic acids. Olive oil, especially extra virgin, twentieth century demonstrate fairly conclusively that the contains smaller amounts of hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol, people of the Mediterranean basin enjoy a healthy lifestyle but also contains secoiridoids and lignans in abundance. with decreased incidence of degenerative diseases. The Both olives and olive oil contain substantial amounts of data show that populations within Europe that consume other compounds deemed to be anticancer agents (e.g. the so-called ‘Mediterranean diet’ have lower incidences of squalene and terpenoids) as well as the peroxidation- major illnesses such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. resistant lipid oleic acid. It seems probable that olive and Studies have suggested that the health-conferring benefits olive oil consumption in southern Europe represents an of the Mediterranean diet are due mainly to a high important contribution to the beneficial effects on health consumption of fibre, fish, fruits and vegetables. More of the Mediterranean diet. European Journal of Cancer recent research has focused on other important factors
