Olive oil is good for the heart: FDA promotes it to “a medicine”

Good news for the Mediterranean diet: the US Food and Drug Administration, after long and thorough research, has sanctioned that Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a number of properties that are highly beneficial to health, and has modified the appellation of the product from “salutary” to “medicinal”. It will now therefore be possible to list the numerous beneficial properties of the oil on labels, and indicate that taking half a spoonful of oil, without increasing the total number of calories consumed daily, guarantees a significant preventive effect on health.
