LATEST NEWS: PALM OIL IS BAD NEWS

Leave a comment

News: The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has deemed palm oil a possible carcinogen. According to the EFSA, palm oil becomes potentially cancer-causing when it is processed at high temperatures (approx. 200°C). When refining oils, the EFSA found that the glycidyl fatty acid esters (GE), 3-monochloropropanediol (3-MCPD), and 2-monochloropropanediol (2-MCPD) – all potential carcinogens were formed. The highest levels of these substances were discovered in palm oils and palm fats. The EFSA also cites margarine and “pastries and cakes” as the main sources of exposure for consumers aged three and above.

TAKEAWAY: Avoid food that may have been cooked in palm oil. This is especially dangerous for babies. Make sure that your baby food does not contain Palm oil.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
