I daily eat 5 -7 table spoons of extra version olive oil mostly sprinkling on food, salad. Any health benefits, or concerns from the saturated fat.

I daily eat 5 -7 table spoons of extra version olive oil mostly sprinkling on food, salad. Any health benefits, or concerns from the saturated fat.

Only calories!: There is little saturated fat in olive oil, which primarily is monosaturated fat, the fat with health benefits, and which also moderates your cholesterol and increases hdl. The only downside is the extra calories. If you are on a low carbohydrate lifestyle, it wouldn't matter. But on a conventional diet it would. It is a good idea to replace saturated fat with monsaturated fat when you can! ...Read more

Do any of you have opinions re holistic gallbladder "cleanses" using epsom salts, olive oil and lemon juice. What is left after all the tests?

Don't "cleanse"!: The ingredients you mentioned have no bearing on "cleansing" your gallbladder. In fact, epsom salts may harm your kidney. The gallbladder contains concentrated bile produced in the liver, & it empties in response to dietary fats. There is no physiologic way to wash out your gallbladder, so please don't waste your time and risk your health! ...Read more

Is it safe to drink a mixture of lemon juice and olive oil every morning?

My husband was diagnosed w/ gallbladder polyps & stones. He passed out green&black feces after drinking olive oil & lemon juice. Were that stones?

My husband was diagnosed w/ gallbladder polyps & stones. He passed out green&black feces after drinking olive oil & lemon juice. Were that stones?

Not gallstones: The combination of olive oil, lemon juice, and digestive enzymes in our gut creates "soap stones"; these are not gallstones. There is medication, however, that can sometimes dissolve stones. However, it is an ineffective alternative to surgery--the gb is a "gallstone factory"--new stones will form within a few years. Lastly, a polyp can be pre-malignant: if > 1 cm, the gallbladder should be removed. ...Read more
