Other news

It has been suggested that health claims could determine consumers’ perception of extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), and therefore consumption. In this sense, a study on consumer behaviours analysed the change in perception of EVOO for potential consumers in response to functional claims (those related to the role of a nutrient in the development and/or preservation of human physiological functions) and risk-related claims (those related to the ability of a nutrient to decrease disease risks). The results demonstrated that, compared to functional claims, risk related claims exert a stronger effect on the perceived health benefits of EVOO. These findings are insightful not only for food companies, but for health advocates (policymakers, medical doctors, nutritionists) seeking to promote the consumption of extra-virgin olive oil through effective strategies.

On the other hand, for the first time, a prospective cohort study demonstrated the potential benefits of the Mediterranean dietary pattern and other healthy dietary patterns on multiple myeloma (MM) mortality. In the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, patients with healthy dietary habits prior to MM diagnosis (determined by the alternate healthy eating index, alternate Mediterranean diet score, and dietary approaches to stop hypertension) showed a lower myeloma-specific mortality than those with unhealthy dietary patterns. In addition, healthier pre-diagnosis dietary habits and lower adherence to the Western pattern were not only associated with lower MM-specific, but also for overall mortality. Interestingly, the overall lower mortality in patients with MM was observed regardless of the time since the diagnosis was made. The authors suggest that these benefits could possibly complement more advanced therapies which have emerged in the past two decades to treat MM.
