Seed Oils: Is this Toxic Waste in your Favorite Foods?

We tend to think that everything in the health food store is healthy, right?

Unfortunately, there are TONS of toxins hiding in products on the shelves of your local health food store.

In order to improve the color, smell, and stability of these oils, anti-oxidant chemicals are added to the oil solution. These chemicals include BHA, BHT, and TBHQ which have been linked to hormone disruption, immune system suppression, and cancer.

BHA and BHT are both banned in the UK, Japan, and many European countries because of their harmful carcinogenic properties…

So where do these oils hide and what products should we replace them with?

These seed oils are EVERYWHERE! Most restaurants, fast food companies, and packaged foods contain seed oils.

It's no surprise that Chipotle, Chick Fil A, McDonalds, Taco Bell and pretty much every single fast food restaurant use seed oils such as canola oil, safflower oil, rice oil, and sunflower oil.
