The Mediterranean Diet has a reputation for being one of the world’s healthiest. And with good right: Studies have shown that sticking to Mediterranean eating patterns—lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and olive oil and little red meat—offers a wealth of health benefits, from keeping weight in check to managing blood glucose levels. Science also suggests that the diet reduces inflammation, a risk factor for heart attack and stroke, and may even ward off depression and lower the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
I have read too many times that Canola Oil is not good for you due to the processing. I will stick (no pun intended) to Olive Oil and Butter. If you keep the fats in your diet to a minimum neither of those should cause a problem.

I also have heard that Canola Oil is NOT good for you.
I will stick with extra virgin olive oil.
