Historical Importance of Pure Olive Oil
“Use Extra Virgin Olive Oil and You Might Just Forget to Die”
— Article Headline in Reader’s Digest
There is one superfood mentioned often in the Bible that modern medicine is studying intensely for its potential in fighting America’s biggest killer diseases, including heart disease, stroke, cancer, Alzheimer’s, as well as arthritis and inflammation everywhere in the body.
We’re talking about olive oil. Honored in olden times as both a food and a medicine, olive oil was so revered that it became a symbol of prosperity, joy, and health. Kings were anointed with olive oil as a sign that they were chosen by God to rule.
Other ancients revered olive oil as well. Homer called it “liquid gold.” Hippocrates, the father of medicine, hailed it as “the great healer.”
Fast forward to today, and scientific studies are proving the ancients right, with profound health benefits.
Stick with “Extra Virgin”
When you shop for olive oil, be sure to buy extra virgin. As you may know, one of our favorite sayings about food is, “If God made it, then it’s fine, and try to eat it in the same form that God made it.” That’s why we prefer extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). It’s the only grade that retains its natural phenols (antioxidants) and other health-promoting compounds. EVOO is cold pressed, meaning it’s not extracted using high heat or harsh chemicals. It’s minimally processed, leaving in all the wholesome nutrients that God meant it to have.
Other olive oil grades, such as “virgin,” “pure,” or “light,” have been industrially refined, which destroys the healthful phenols.”

It can be a godsend for arthritis sufferers because it can reduce inflammation and ease joint pain without side effects.
Extra virgin olive oil lowers blood pressure and reduces your risk of diabetes. It may even help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. If you want to avoid osteoporosis, it’s outstanding because it enables the calcium in your food to be better absorbed into your bones. Extra virgin olive oil is loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols that help regulate your immune system and aid it in protecting your body against disease. It contains zero carbs, which makes it ideal for those on the popular, Paleo, Atkins, vegan, and other eating plans.

Cancer-Causing Agents in Fake Olive Oils?
In his New York Times best-selling book, Extra Virginity, olive oil expert Tom Mueller warns of contaminants and even cancer-causing agents in fake olive oils. He writes:
“Italian investigators have found hydrocarbon residues, pesticides, and other contaminants in fake oils, and pomace oil, a common adulterant, sometimes contains mineral oil as well as PAHs, proven carcinogens that can also damage DNA and the immune system. Then there’s the 1981 case of toxic oil syndrome in Spain, when rapeseed oil adulterated with an industrial additive, sold as olive oil, killed eight hundred people and seriously injured thousands more.”
This is why you never want to feed your family counterfeit olive oils cooked up by criminals who couldn’t care less about your family’s health.
3 Mistakes When Choosing Olive Oil Brands
However, even if the label says “extra virgin,” you’ve got to be careful because many olive oils in stores are rancid, adulterated, or even counterfeit.
Here’s how to buy with confidence and avoid the biggest mistakes.
Mistake #1: Buying stale olive oil “off the shelf.”
Olive oil, unlike wine, does not get better with age. Like eggs, meat, fish, veggies, and other fresh, natural foods, olive oil is perishable. The olive is, after all, a fruit. Similar to other fruit juices, olive oil is best enjoyed fresh-squeezed. That’s when you experience its peak freshness, flavor, and nutritional potency.
Forget the “best used by” date on labels. They tell you nothing about how recently the olive oil was pressed. The best EVOO producers put a pressing date on the label (also known as the “harvest date”). Preferably, you want to see a date no older than six months ago. As The Wall Street Journal puts it, “When it comes to olive oil, the younger the better.”
Avoid buying olive oil in stores, where the oils sit on the shelf for months or even years, growing stale, musty, and rancid. That’s definitely not healthy. We recommend buying online, where you can secure outrageously delicious olive oils fresh from the latest harvest. That’s when olive oil is bursting with just-plucked-from-the-tree flavor and goodness. Try just one bottle of such fresh-pressed olive oil from a good online company, and you’ll likely never go back to store-bought oils. Below we name our favorite online source of harvest-fresh olive oils.
Mistake #2: Unwittingly buying olive oil made by the Mafia.
As you’ve probably heard, fake, Mafia-made olive oils have been flooding U.S. supermarkets. If you’ve missed this frightening story, here are just a few of the headlines you can check out online…
NBC News has reported that “fake olive oil is rampant.” The Wall Street Journal adds, “American grocery stores are awash in cheap, fake ‘extra virgins.’” In an explosive exposé, 60 Minutes has cautioned that you face a “sea of fakes” when you shop for olive oil in stores.
Why Is This Happening?
Thanks to the many health benefits of authentic olive oil, demand is soaring worldwide. But pure extra virgin olive oil is quite expensive. Just as notorious crime families pocket fortunes by creating cheap knockoffs of designer clothing and handbags, they palm off fake olive oil as extra virgin, the highest grade. The New Yorker magazine has reported that the profits in counterfeiting olive oil are “comparable to cocaine trafficking, with none of the risks.”
Because America is the world’s largest consumer market, the crooks have successfully targeted U.S. supermarkets as their favorite dumping ground.
Buy from a supplier whose oils are independently lab certified to be 100% pure extra virgin. This gives you protection against all the fakes. The source we name below is one such conscientious provider.
Mistake #3: Thinking that all olive oils taste alike.
If you’ve always bought your olive oil in a supermarket, odds are you’ve never experienced the extraordinary diversity of flavors that await you among the finest artisanal oils. Ordinary mass-market olive oils sell in such huge volume that they must combine inferior olives from many farms and different growing regions, with little regard for flavor compatibility. This typically results in a dull, lifeless flavor profile.
In contrast, award-winning artisans create their oils from olives grown on small boutique farms. These dedicated masters are free to strive for flavor perfection from each different type of olive. This makes their award-winning creations as rich, complex, and distinctive as the finest wines, especially when you use them with your favorite foods.
For example, some olive varietals naturally possess a bright, spicy flavor. These oils are audaciously bold and pair magnificently with a hearty charred steak or grilled lamb. In contrast, other artisanal olive oils are pressed from olives that yield softer, more delicate nuances. These will perfectly complement—without overpowering—your delicate baked halibut. Still, other olives naturally yield a greener, more herbaceous oil that will crown your salad greens and veggies with farm-fresh flavor.
Discovering these delectable differences in fine artisanal olive oils is such fun. And, as any master chef will tell you, educating your palate in this way is one of the great secrets of elevating your favorite dishes to new heights of flavor and satisfaction that you, your family, and your guests will love.
The moment you twist the cap off one of these outstanding just-pressed oils, inhale its harvest-fresh bouquet and savor its garden-like taste, you’ll know that this is how fine olive oil is meant to be enjoyed. But where can you find such oils, since they’re not available in stores?
