Olive oil

Many people have been trained to stay away from all oil, particularly if they are eating a low-fat diet and watching their weight. However, olive oil features monounsaturated fatty acids, which recent research shows helps protect you from the early signs of dementia that go along with aging and some diseases of the brain.
