Many times the reason not to cook with olive oil is because the olive oil in your region might be fake or not pure olive oil. So unless you have access to olive oil that meets the EU standards you should avoid cooking with olive oil.

So a quick summary would be that you can cook with Olive oil but you need to know which Olive oil you are using and its smoke point and what temperature you will cook it at. Generally anything below 180c is fine.
