Dr. Limor Goren PhD is a cancer researcher with a PhD in Molecular Biology. Her research centers on one of the most important anti-inflammatory and anticancer molecules found in medicinal olive oil, oleocanthal. Dr. Goren discovered one of the mechanisms by which oleocanthal is toxic to cancer cells and showed that olive oils that are rich in oleocanthal can effectively kill various types of cancer cells.
But not all olive oil is created equal. It’s estimated that 80% of Italian olive oil is fake, diluted or mislabeled. When it comes to real extra virgin olive oil, the variety of olive, the method of harvesting and processing, as well as the age of the oil when you consume it all affect the polyphenol levels. The freshest, most potent medicinal olive oils can have as much as eight times more polyphenols, over 1,000 mg/kg vs. 150 mg/kg in a typical olive oil.

I've interviewed over 60 people who've healed all types and stages of cancer. Check them out here. Or use the search bar to find survivors of specific cancer types.
I also created a coaching program for cancer patients, caregivers and anyone who is serious about prevention called SQUARE ONE. It contains the step-by-step strategies used by myself and everyone I know who has healed cancer with nutrition and natural, non-toxic therapies.
