'These oils have already turned rancid'
geez, wouldn't people just say - this stuff tastes bad, I'm not going to buy it? You don't seem to give people much credit.
'The oil is steam cleaned (again!) to remove the odor of chemicals. This step is called deodorization and it again involves high temperature and high pressure.'
Oh my, heat and pressure, like grandma uses in her pressure cooker at home.
And this helps to prove one of my points. Science has since learned that trans-fats are bad for you. So, we are now labeling these and reducing them in our foods. Yep, it was probably a mistake to encourage margarine over butter, but we are correcting it, and I think that's a good thing.
At any rate, how much margarine is someone who is trying to maintain a healthy weight going to eat in a day? Goes back to my desire to eat a diverse range of foods, and lots of bulky, low-calorie ones.
But more importantly, are you going to share with us how you think we should reap the benefits of new technology if you are so risk adverse? Without that info, calling out every mistake that has been made is hollow. We have to weigh them against the progress that has been or could be made.
Air bags save lives, Air bags have hurt/killed some people. But, since the good far outweighs the bad, it would be irresponsible to call for the removal of air bags from all cars. And, industry has responded by making even safer air bags.
So tell us, how you are you going to do this?
