So far, only a few studies have tested avocado’s ability to prevent and fight cancers like prostate cancer, acute my eloid leukemia (a cancer of the blood and the bone marrow), and oral cancer by inducing death in cancer cells.161718
Avocados have been proven to fight prostate, oral, and blood and bone marrow cancer (AML) effectively.
But several studies on the bioactive substances like oleic acid, avocatin B, vitamin E, lutein, beta-carotene, alpha-carotene found in the fruit show that avocados could help with other cancers too.These compounds help inhibit the growth of precancerous and cancer cell lines, induce cell death (apoptosis) of abnormal cells, and also arrest the cell cycle.
Dietary vitamin E and luteinare linked with a decrease in the risk of breast cancer even in women with a family history of breast cancer, while the carotenoid scan prevent oral cancers. Oleic acidis also known to reduce cancer risk by reducing inflammation.

7.Helps In Weight Loss
The weight loss effect of avocados is beyond debate.About 80% of an avocado’s carbohydrates come from fiber. Of this, about 70% is insoluble and 30% soluble. Fiber can keep you full longer and help you restrict calorie intake. Fiber also helps avoid those sudden dips or spikes in sugar or energy levels that can lead you to make unhealthy food choices. Also, the high fiber content in avocados prevents constipation by promoting easier bowel movements.
