I daily eat 5 -7 table spoons of extra version olive oil mostly sprinkling on food, salad. Any health benefits, or concerns from the saturated fat.

I daily eat 5 -7 table spoons of extra version olive oil mostly sprinkling on food, salad. Any health  benefits,  or concerns from the saturated fat.

It is a good idea to replace saturated fat with monsaturated fat when you can! ...Read more
