Food scientists at the University of Georgia report that cottonseed oil outperforms olive oil
in terms of blood lipid normalization during a 5 day trial diet of each. The scientists studied 15 men using a crossover design study in which each subject followed a diet rich in one oil or the other for 5 days, enjoyed a break, and then followed a diet with the other oil.
When the data was tabulated, those eating the cottonseed oil-rich diet had higher HDL cholesterol values but lower total cholesterols, LDL cholesterols, and triglycerides than when eating the olive oil-rich diet. It appears that cottonseed oil will be the new oil of choice in your diet.
