"This report focuses on studies examining the effect of olive oil on blood lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides) and lipoproteins (LDL, VLDL, and HDL). It is the first in a series of reports that summarize published studies examining the effect of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) on clinical risk factors for chronic diseases. These reports provide clinicians with science-based information and practical advice on how to teach patients to incorporate EVOO into the diet."
A team of UC Davis students was selected as the winners of the 2014 iGEM competition in Boston on November 3rd for their olive oil biosensor!
