I almost couldn’t believe it myself, but it’s true.

Today I bring you an urgent warning about America’s most fraudulent “health food”—one that’s likely in your kitchen cabinet right now.

It’s extra virgin olive oil. Problem is, you have no idea what’s in that bottle (I know I didn’t)! I think you’ll be as shocked as I was when you read this disturbing news and wonder...

How DARE anyone sell us food like this!

Please understand, I’m not talking about all olive oil. Far from it. Good, fresh, authentic, and pure extra virgin olive oil is one of Mother Nature’s most delicious and healthful marvels. That’s why I use it in so many of my recipes and have been consuming it for so many years. Also, consuming high-quality, nutritious fats like pure olive oil is one of the most effective ways to maintain a lean and fit body. That’s because healthful fats like olive oil help you feel full longer.

And, when you replace empty carb calories with nourishing fat calories, you help stoke your body’s “fat burning furnace” to burn more fat, including fat reserves you may be carrying around your stomach, butt, hips, legs, and other problem areas.

What’s more, studies show that pure, authentic extra virgin olive oil also helps you ease inflammation … protects you against heart disease, stroke, and even certain cancers … is a godsend for achy joints … and lowers blood pressure and bad (LDL) cholesterol. Can you see why I use it daily?

However, you gain these benefits only if you and your family are consuming pure, authentic extra virgin olive oil.

And that’s where the Big Food industry is trying to fool you!

As documented by several of America’s most respected media, many if not most of the olive oils in your local supermarket and gourmet store are fraudulent, adulterated, mislabeled, stale, or even rancid. This is true even of some famous brands whose names you’d immediately recognize.

For example, the New York Times recently published an explosive article entitled “Extra Virgin Suicide.” It reports that much of the olive oil sold in your local supermarket is adulterated with cheap soybean and other inferior oils. That’s very disturbing because most soy oil comes from genetically modified soybeans.

NBC News reports that “fake olive oil is rampant.”

CBS News adds: “Consumers who think they’re buying one of the healthiest foods on the planet often get something very different.”

“American grocery stores are awash in cheap, fake ‘extra virgins,’” confirms The Wall Street Journal.

A feature story on ABC’s Good Morning America was headlined, “Olive Oil Fraud Rampant.”

Forbes magazine warns: “Here’s the hard truth: the olive oil in your pantry, the one you bought for its health benefits and for some sliver of the seductive Mediterranean lifestyle, is most likely a scam.”

Why is this happening?

With so many recent studies hailing the health benefits of authentic olive oil and the Mediterranean diet, sales of extra virgin olive oil are soaring worldwide. Big money is involved, triggering widespread counterfeiting, dilution, and product substitution by unscrupulous foreign producers. American supermarkets have become dumping grounds for these fraudulent oils. Yet it’s almost impossible to police the shady foreign operators who supply these fake oils because they are beyond the reach of U.S. regulators.

An M.D.’s “consumer guide” to America’s best olive oils

If you click on the blue link below, you’ll discover an M.D.’s “consumer guide” to the world’s purest, freshest, and most nutritious olive oils. It’s presented by respected physician Joe W. Frazer III, M.D. The good doctor gives you two vital tips on how to buy safe and pure olive oil no matter where you shop. He’ll also share an insider secret on how to look for the right “code words” on the bottle that will tell you how fresh the oil is (beware: it’s NOT the “expiration” or “best used by” date!). Freshness is critical because olive oil, unlike wine, deteriorates with age, and you don’t want to feed your family rancid olive oil. You’ll also learn how to store and use your oil so it doesn’t grow stale or rancid.

You must insist on independent lab certification of purity

Most important, Dr. Frazer advises looking for olive oils that are independently certified to be 100% pure extra virgin. He tells which oils meet this gold standard and reveals where to find them. They are the purest, freshest, highest-rated award-winning olive oils in America and are out-of-this-world delicious.

Once I tried these olive oils, I knew I would never go back to the other stuff I was buying at the store. These oils are now the only extra virgin olive oils that I trust to put in my body and serve to my parents, husband and kids. I recommend them to everyone.

I obtain these best-of-the-best olive oils from the source that Dr. Frazer and many other olive oil experts recommend. It’s a unique service called the Fresh-Pressed Olive Oil Club. It’s one of the true “good guy” companies in the olive oil world.

How good are they? Listen to this…

Windfall for my readers: 1,200 free sample bottles (full-size), fresh from the harvest. First come, first served.

Every now and then (right around olive harvest time), this company conducts a generous free-sample marketing campaign. For a limited time, they actually give away—to readers of a select few publications—free full-size bottles of one of the world’s top-rated artisanal olive oils, fresh from the harvest.

These folks are so proud of their harvest-fresh, family-farm olive oils that they’re inviting you to try their unique club and taste their oil for yourself, cost free and risk free, with no obligation to buy anything now or ever. Quite a deal, huh?

I asked the company if my readers could be included in this free-sample giveaway program. They checked out my website and said yes.

So, as part of this free-sample marketing campaign, you can receive a free full-size bottle ($39 retail price) of one of the world’s best EVOOs, direct from an award-winning family farm. It’s independently certified by lab analysis to be 100% pure. It’s also fresh from the latest harvest and bursting with so much flavor, it’s like no other oil you’ve ever tasted. It takes your salads, veggies, grilled meats, fish, and more to whole new levels of flavor.

The full-size sample bottle is yours free as a no-risk, “no-strings” introduction to the club. It’s a really fair deal because you’re never obligated to buy anything, now or ever. Even the shipping and handling costs to your front door have been waived for this free-sample giveaway campaign.

However, because of customs regulations, this big free sample bottle is available only to my readers who live in the U.S. If that includes you, you're in luck.

Free $39 bottle giveaway ends Saturday, December 12

If you’d like to try this delightful club and receive one of their free bottles, I suggest that you act now, for two reasons:

First, the company has reserved a strictly limited number—1,200 free bottles (100 cases)—to share with my readers. Problem is, I’ve got hundreds of thousands of readers, so these 1,200 free bottles should go very fast, and it’s first come, first served. Also, their generous offer expires Saturday, December 12, which will be here before we know it.

Finally, whether you plan to claim one of these free-sample bottles or not, I encourage you to check out Dr. Frazer’s consumer guide. It will give you lots of helpful information on one of Mother Nature’s most healthful superfoods, provided it’s 100% pure and authentic and independently lab certified as such. You’ll see how to avoid the scores of scam, counterfeit oils flooding your supermarket’s shelves...and how to choose instead the freshest, purest, and most nutritious olive oils for your family.
