Can you please clarify why Extra Virgin olive oil  which has Saturated fat lowers LDL (bad cholesterol.) Is it advised to eat lot it olive oil daily?

False statement: Olive oil does not lower LDL. Olive oil raises ldl less so compared to other fats. Although there is some saturated fat in olive oil the major component is monounsaturated fat. This topic is too complex for me to answer fully here. But suffice it to say... Small amounts of olive oil daily 1 tablespoon or less combined with a healthy diet is healthier than many other fats ( trans-fats&sat. fats) ...Read more

Eat fish for Omega 3: Our bodies don't convert omega 3's from flaxseed into the epa & dha readily available in fish (oil). There are some attempts to make epa & dha from seaweed & algae but otherwise, read label for epa & dha content. You won't see much from flaxseed products nor will you get much conversion either.

How healthy is soybean oil compared to olive and canola oil?

Wouldn't eat it: in large amounts all by itself for any of them. Total calorie intake in a day is probably the really really bad feature.
