1.The  fleshy green fruit is being used in the development of a drug that researchers hope will one day be able to fight blood cancer.

In a study published in the journal Cancer Research, Paul Spagnuolo, a professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, writes of a fat in avocados that combats acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a rare and deadly form of cancer, by targeting leukemia stem cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed.
“The stem cell is really the cell that drives the disease,” Spagnuolo said
A drug for leukemia derived from avocados is still years away, but even those without cancer can still benefit from the food.

Past studies have shown that eating a lot of avocados is associated with lower blood cholesterol. In one study that involved putting people with slightly elevated levels on a diet rich in avocados for just seven days, researchers saw a 17 percent decrease in cholesterol levels.
