Virtually all oil and margarine products sold in supermarkets. A process to such a degree that if they consumed on a regular basis, disease can follow. For oil the refining process often involves a chemical solvent for extraction and a very high temperature for processing and deodorizing. Margarine is hydrogenated meaning that hydrogen has been added to the oil to make I harder room temperature. The result in both cases is an abundance of very harmful Trans fatty acids. Tran’s fatty acids in cell membranes weaken the membranes protective structure and alter normal transport of minerals and other nutrients. This creates an elevation of blood cholesterol levels and metabolic disorders that can cause arthritis, heart disease and cancer. The alternative to these highly refined and toxic oils is unrefined organic cold press oils found at health food stores.
