More scientific information about olive oil
In American continent people are still very misinformed about extra virgin and the market now is promoting more the use of coconut virgin oil and less the olive oil
My Congratulations for your wonderful site and the information you provided on the 'The scientific truth on cooking with extra virgin olive oil'!!!
I am living in Canada, I am a Greek immigrant and here in this American continent people are still very misinformed about olive oil and the market now is promoting more the use of coconut virgin oil and less the olive oil...Sure, coconut oil is excellent too BUT NOTHING IS LIKE OLIVE OIL..NOTHING. One of my ancestors, Hippocrates, said that "olive oil is the wet gold" and the "great therapeutic"...Our Greek (and Roman) ancestors knew a lot more that those modern doctors and nutritionists with the americanised marketing that devalues such an old and valuable oil. Goddess Athena gave the olive tree as a gift to the Athenians....Hippocrates used it to treat 60 different conditions and ailments. Bravo to our Italians brothers for supporting and always value such a great oil and Bravo for your great site. I have used some of the information you give to a debate with other nutritionists from America that believe that cooking with coconut oil is better than olive oil.....When I presented your information they were speechless....xaxa
May the Gods be with you...:)
