Did you know that the U.S. consumes 8 percent of the world's olive oil, yet produces only about 1 percent of it? I'm not at all surprised to see that Spain is hands down leader in olive oil. When Susan and I visited there, we would go for miles on the train when all you could see on both sides of the track were olive groves. For miles and miles.
Another lesson here: big consumers of olive oil live longer and have far less heart disease. More proof that what God put here for us to begin with beats any improvement we've attempted.
