Does cooking olive oil "ruin" it in any way? I'd be more specific but I'm quoting my girlfriend so I want to be very careful here.

Does cooking olive oil ruin it?

I grew up using butter in the pan for everything. Then, at some point, I started using olive oil instead. So now I have a girlfriend and she's adamant. VEGETABLE oil is fine for cooking but frying with olive oil ruins it and may possibly make it toxic.
This is hooey right?
