A natural compound in extra-virgin olive oil may help prevent and even treat Alzheimer’s disease, according to researchers. Oleocanthal, which is a naturally-occurring compound found in extra-virgin olive oil, alters the structure of neurotoxic proteins, which are believed to contribute to the debilitating effects of Alzheimer's. In turn, this structural change impedes the proteins' ability to damage brain nerve cells. "The findings may help identify effective preventative measures and lead to improved therapeutics in the fight against Alzheimer's disease," said study co-leader Paul A.S. Breslin, PhD, a sensory psycho-biologist at the Monell Center, a Philadelphia based sensory research in
