What oil? Which vinegar? What about sugar?

Why is olive oil special?

Post by Aytundra »

Did I miss reading something?
Iirc from a post, back in the days of no internet and researching out of books, you concluded to use olive oil.
Why did you conclude to using olive oil and not other oils?

Olive oil is most readily/easily/naturally harvested using simple cold pressing techniques, and it (1% omega 3, 8% omega 6) perfectly balances a fruit diet that is relatively high in omega-3 (omega 6/3 is close to 2:1).
Avocado oil is excellent (same omega 6/3 ratio), but very expensive.

Are you suggesting we need to obtain minerals from oil?

Merely just noting that selenium is higher in olive oil than other oils.
That selenium seems to be the only mineral there in olive and compared to other foods (hence taking it in would allow controlled intake of selenium).
Of course fish is a source of selenium, but fish also presents other minerals like calcium...iron (depending which fish)...mercury...

In Revici's work, selenium + 3 lipids of egg + ???, corrects for anabolic imbalances.
But can't find recipe.
