Toxic Cooking Oil

Michelle RBefore I talk about vegetable oil, I have to talk a little bit about soy.

I promise this will make sense in a few minutes.

I am sure that you have read, or heard that soy is sooooo good for you.... But what you may not realize is that there are thousands of studies linking soy to malnutrition, digestive distress, immune-system breakdown, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders, infertility, cancer and heart disease. In fact, the only soy that has any health benefits is organic soy that has been properly fermented. After a long fermentation process (like 3+ years), the phytate (this is what makes soy so scary) levels of soybeans are minimized significantly, and their beneficial properties become available to your digestive system.

When my son was little, he went through a 'I don't want to kill any animals' vegetarian phase. I talked this over with his pediatrician, and he told me to be very, very careful with the products marketed as being vegetarian because most of them were jam packed with soy, and that could be very dangerous for my growing child.

I had no idea how dangerous until today!

oil Raise your hand if you have ever cooked/baked with vegetable oil. I know I have and I also know that there are tons of products that have vegetable oil listed as an ingredient which seems safe right?? Yeah, that’s what I thought too, but what you may not know is that more times than not it's actually soybean oil (labeled as vegetable oil) that is being used in these products that we are buying, eating and feeding our families.
