Really interesting and useful. Many thanks.

Interesting that they stopped the study early. I wonder if the data would have been more conclusive if they allowed the study to play out.

Also, I find it intriguing that you mention Keys’s work but did not link it to the low-fat dietary recommendations that ultimately spawned from that work. Keys work was one of the cornerstones that built the modern dietary recommendations (eating a low fat being one of the pillars of those guidelines)… While this study seems to support the “abundant” consumption of olive oil.

I think olive oil, with its high % of healthy mono-unsaturated fats, is a great thing to recommend.
