    With regards to vegetable oil, are they all the same? I mean, I know olive oil is great, however, not everyone likes its smell. What about sunflower, maize, flaxseed, palm or other cooking oil are they the same?

    100% virgin olive oil is different.

    Most of the Vegetable oil in the US comes from soybean oil. It is processed with a solvent called hexane which is highly flammable, and very close to gasoline.

    They claim the hexane is all removed from the product, however some residual hexane has been found in the final product.

    I like natural foods that have undergone minimal processing like 100% virgin olive oil.
