Cooking with unique oils

Olive oil has some new competitors. Physicians say sesame oil, avocado oil, walnut oil and coconut oil are worth giving a try. Better yet, each comes with health perks. Sesame oil is known to help with diabetes and to prevent cavities. Avocado oil contains vitamin E, walnut oil is said to be the new fish oil, and coconut oil is known to help with digestion.
