CTBR Member Finds Cancer Fighting Potential of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

CTBR member David Foster with first author Onica LeGendre (Hunter College) and Paul Breslin (School of Environmental and Biological Sciences) found that oleocanthal kills cancerous cells in the laboratory by rupturing vesicles that store the cell’s waste. 
The paper is published in Molecular and Cellular Oncology (DOI:10.1080/23723556.2015.1006077).
Dr. Foster explains the findings in this NBC News 4 New York segment.
