that even if there were no olive groves yet,
I would have invented them.
(Greek Nobel Prized, Poet)
It has been known since ancient times that olive oil in our diet is vital for the health of every organism. The father of medicine, Hippocrates and the greatest physicians of the time, such as Galen, Dioscorides and Diocles, firmly believed in the beneficial effect on health and recommended its use on a daily basis as a treatment in many cases.
