  1. I am not sure that I understand what you are referring to when you say that pure olive oil is detrimental. In fact, the Sages teach, Tractate Horiyot 13b, that olive oil is very beneficial for remembering things. Interestingly enough, researchers in the Lewis Katz School of Medicine in Temple University found that pure olive oil protects against loss of cognitive function. Researches showed that consuming fine olive oil protects the ability to learn and remember and also prevents the creation of amyloid deposits in the brain which bring on Alzheimer’s.
