WHY IS OLIVE OIL GOOD FOR YOU ?

Olive oil is a monounsaturated fat. Monounsaturated fats reduce bad cholesterol, especially when used in place of saturated and trans fats which raise bad cholesterol, such as hydrogenated palm oil (which is often labelled as vegetable oil on foods) and many other types of cooking fats and oils.
 
Olive oil also contains vitamins, antioxidants and polyphenols  which are essential in a healthy diet. These help neutralise free radicals in the body. An excess of free radicals in the human body damages cell membranes and other structures including cellular proteins, lipids and DNA.
 
Olive oil is an essential part of the 'Mediterranean dietí. Research has confirmed that the mediterranean diet, which includes consuming olive oil as the main source of dietary fat, can reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and the incidence of cancers.
