Hi,Maria,thanks for query.You have asked the most debated and difficult question.Nothing is best and ideal.The ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids is important oil that you consume.None of the oil have this in ideal limit.The best option would to be change your oil every 3 months and in rotation.Mustard oil,ground oil,oilve oil and other oils to be used in rotation,The bottom line is eat less oil and stay healthy.
wishing you good health.

I generally walk about 5 kms a day six times a week and also do yoga for 20 minutes a day. ( Exercises prescribed in MR. SADAHIV NIMBALKAR'S BOOK). I do feel short of breath while climbing stairs and also my natural walking speed is lower than a person of 50-55. Stress tests every year for the last 5 years showed ok results. I do not smoke or drink and take 7 hours sleep every day. Should I reduce/ give up for 6 months cholesterol preventive drugs to give my liver some rest. I am prepared to take a calculated risk.
