If you're not using olive oil when you cook...here's why you might want to start.

A half tablespoon of olive oil may help prevent death from heart disease. According to a new study from the American College of Cardiology, consuming more than seven grams of olive oil a day, which is approximately half a tablespoon can lower a person’s risk of death from cardiovascular disease, cancer, dementia, or respiratory illnesses. Researchers on this long-term study credit the positive results to the olive oil’s antioxidant properties.
