Default Linoleic vs. Oleic (safflower oil)??

It seems that the oleic safflower oil is better than the linoleic
safflower oil.

The USDA search puts the majority of total fats in opposite categories
between the linoleic (mostly poly-unsat) and the oleic (mostly mono-
unsat. fat).

I know that mono-unsat fat is healthier for low-cholesterol dieting than
poly or sat. fats. My question is are we again talking about genetically
engineered fats?

I did read a piece of medical opinion at:

http://www.tinyurl.com/zprp7 which only draws no beneficial conclusion of
a reduction in high blood pressure between the two.

My concern is a reduction in LDL cholesterol. I can't be only stuck with
olive oils, for salad dressings and sauteing, etc.

Any thoughts?

Andy
