My impression is that olive oil is good for the heart. I remember hearing of a study where scientists were trying to figure out why Italians did not have higher rates of heart attacks due to their diet being so high in fat, and they determined that the olive oil was a preventive factor. It's good to use cold-processed oils (rather than heat-processed oils) in salads and such also. (Heat can change oils and make them toxic.) Chris1, do you concur?
