Olive oil - How much is too much?

I don't know if this really belongs here or not, but since I'm vegan and this concerns my cooking, I guess it does.

I cook with olive oil a lot. I was wondering how much is too much, and what can it do to you? Can it clog your arteries, etc.? I'm worried because I'm having some chest pains right now, and even though I know/*hope* it's just my paranoia (I can be overly paranoid about my health), I'm still really worried.

I'd say I consume 2-4 tablespoons of olive oil a day. I am really kind of obsessed with it. I love the fruity flavor and never cook with any other oil. I also put it on top of pasta.

Please ease my mind! Or, if you can't, at least tell me now how much harm it does so I can change my eating habits. I have a fairly healthful diet, save for the occasional soy ice cream, but I worry about my health a lot.
