    The one-third of people consuming the most extra virgin olive oil (2 ounces per day or 57 grams per day) were 35% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease (heart attack and stroke) during a 4.8 year follow-up compared to the one-third consuming the least (0.75 ounces or 21 grams per day) according to a study of 7,216 men and women at high cardiovascular risk, aged 55 to 80 years, from the PREDIMED study.
