Q: Here I get olive oil. Can olive oil be used for cooking? Is it fat free and cholesterol free?? also could olive oil be used as body and hair oil? as I dont get any coconut oil here.
A:Olive oil can be used for cooking. It is not fat free or cholesterol free but it is the kind of fat it has that makes it a healthier choice compared to other oils. Olive oil is said to be heart-healthy, although it may not actually directly lower blood cholesterol as much as serve as a substitute for saturated fat (which raises cholesterol). It is available in three different forms but the fat and cholesterol content is more or less the same in all of these.Olive oil is used for body and hair but usually the packing for these purposes is different than that which is used for cooking. You can always look for an olive oil packing which is used for body and hair in a drug store.
