Olive Oil (ELOO) - one of the World's Healthiest Foods?

For those of us who are swigging olive oil daily, here's some background on olive oil.

Olive oil is rich in Vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant:

"It turns out that people who use olive oil regularly, especially in place of other fats, have much lower rates of heart disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, and asthma."

This is a pretty technical article. The most interesting and relevant bit concerns storage: it should be in a dark place, away from heat. Most olive oil is in glass bottles, so that means I shouldn't store mine by the stove but in a closed cupboard :)
