Avocado Oil Could Have Anti-Aging, Disease-Fighting Capabilities. Avocado oil is similar in composition to olive oil, consumption of which is associated with unusually low levels of chronic disease in some Mediterranean countries. New research conducted in Mexico, the world's largest avocado producer, has now demonstrated its power to combat destructive rogue oxygen molecules. These unstable "free radicals" wreak havoc in the body, triggering chain reactions that destroy cell membranes, proteins and even DNA.The phenomenon is one of the prime drivers of ageing and believed to play a major role in damage to arteries and cancer. Oxygen free radicals, or "reactive oxygen species", are natural waste products of metabolism but may be generated in greater numbers due to factors such as pollution, tobacco smoke and radiation.
