Avocado Oil and the Brain, 2

Do you use avocado oil or other vegetable oils for frying?

Typically, I eat  salads undressed or with a little balsamic sprinkled on them. Since fried and stir-fried foods are not on my menu, I do not use avocado oil (or any other oil, for that matter), although it is touted as one of the healthier oils. I prefer to eat the avocado itself because of the fiber and many nutrients it contains such as potassium, antioxidants, and an anti-inflammatory substance. As far as “vegetable oils,” I read labels carefully and avoid those products (except for extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil). The fallout from the extraction process for many vegetable oils is something I want to avoid.
