This is the conventional wisdom. Unfortunately it is wrong. Since olive oil has an omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 13.4 to 1, it would only be reasonable to expect that it would promote inflammation.

Here is an article on olive oil that cites the scientific literature: olive oil nutrition

From the article: “Foods rich in monounsaturated fats like olive oil may be better than foods full of saturated and trans fats, but just because something is “better” does not mean it is good for you.”
