In brief: Many uses

I'm glad you're health-conscious.
It's a cooking oil popular in Europe, it's the basis of putty, is used to lubricate pool cues and cricket bats, thin paint, and was the basis of linoleum. Despite all the talk online, if there's a real health benefit it awaits demonstration. Enjoy your smoothies, but these are no substitute for sensible eating, avoiding smoking and staying aerobically fit.
