American Association for Cancer Research
In our mission to raise awareness of eating a healthy diet and living a healthy lifestyle through the unique Mediterranean diet, we have teamed up with a partner to aid us in achieving this as well as helping in the fight against cancer.
The AACR is the world’s first and largest cancer research organization, dedicated to preventing and curing cancer through research, education, communication, and collaboration. Eighty-eight cents of every dollar donated funds lifesaving cancer research. The AACR administers grants to scientists across the world to fund meritorious research to propel progress against cancer. By accelerating the growth and spread of new knowledge about cancer, the AACR is on the front lines of the quest for prevention and cure.
The programs and services of the AACR foster the exchange of knowledge and new ideas among scientists dedicated to cancer research, provide training opportunities for the next generation of cancer researchers, and increase public understanding of cancer.
Prevention is also an important part of what AACR is promoting as well as researching. It is said that we prevent more than half the cancers that occur in the United States today by applying knowledge we already have, according to researchers. Obesity, poor diet, and lack of exercise account for almost one-third of cancer fatalities in the United States, so healthy behavior will lessen our risk. Therefore, nutrition and our lifestyle is an important part of trying to prevent cancer from developing.
We are extremely proud to join forces and partner with the American Association for Cancer Research in their fight against cancer by donating proceeds from each bottle sold. Extra virgin olive oil is a pillar of the Mediterranean diet, which has been shown from Ancient Greece to the modern times to have positive effects on our health. As the AACR is committed to cancer prevention through healthy behaviors this is a special partnership.
