Priority has therefore been given to a range of measures for run-off and soil erosion control. One such measure, the use of stone bunds built on natural contour lines, has been promoted and supported by governments, NGOs, extension agents and farmers for more than 25 years and is now widely used in the Sahel. The best results are often achieved when contour stone bunds are used in combination with the planting of grass and trees on the contour lines. In wetter years they help to reduce the climate-induced risk of run-off and erosion.
Medical pundits frequently hold forth about olive oil with faulty facts.
How often have you been warned not to cook with extra virgin olive oil because heat breaks it down — despite the fact that quality extra virgin olive oil actually has a very high smoke point, and is extremely healthy? A recent Spanish study on the cardiovascular benefits of the Mediterranean diet, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, triggered a spate of press coverage including two articles in the New York Times here and here.
Things could be worse. The study revealed no correlation between Mediterranean diet and reduced incidence of breast cancer, which is surprising until you read the fine print: Over the last thirty years, while working as a teacher, researcher and outpatient dietitian, Mary has reviewed the existing science concerning the role of olive oil and health; performed her own research on olive oil health; created a weight-loss diet that features extra virgin olive oil; co-authored books about the fallacy of low-fat weight-loss diets Low-fat LiesLifeline Press, and the health benefits of an olive oil- and vegetable-rich diet for breast cancer survivors and for people in general The Pink Ribbon DietDa Capo Lifelong Books, ; and celebrated olive oil in culinary events with prominent chefs.
In the process, she has gained a remarkable appreciation of olive oil not only as a health-promoting substance but as a delicious, uniquely satisfying food. Flynn is joining Truth in Olive Oil this week, to explain how her fascination with extra virgin olive oil was born.

To understand why this was happening, I started exploring the literature on how dietary fat is related to a wide range of diseases. Nutritional research studies routinely produce apparently conflicting results involving the same foods, often due to the study design, the participants used, or the food source of the nutrient.
Yet somehow, the research on olive oil was different: I found this fascinating, especially since at the time US health officials had begun to recommend low-fat diets to fight most chronic diseases, as well as for weight loss.
In fact, I have never supported the use of low-fat diets for any reason. In I co-authored a book for laypeople that presented the literature on low-fat diets, showing that they were neither healthy nor effective Low-fat LiesLifeline Press, For me, in fact, the main problem with low-fat diets was the hunger that resulted from reducing dietary fat.

I developed a weight-loss diet based on the basic eating principles observed around the Mediterranean by Ancel Keys and others, and widely practiced by Mediterranean populations today.
