Ah Finally, Extra Slutty Olive oil!

Unpopular facts…. Slutty or Virgin… all oil is bad for you! Now I know the marketing has you believing that only certain oils like canola, vegetable or hydrogenated oils are bad for you but all oil including olive and avocado is because oil is a carcinogen and even more toxic once heated above 170 degrees. 
Just think about your body as a cup of water, which it realistically actually is; what happens when you try to mix oil and water?  What happens to the cup when you pour out the oil and water? Which one lines the cup forever? 
That’s what happens when you eat oil. If you’re suffering from inflammation, arthritis or gastrointestinal issues, besides dairy, oil is one of the first things you should eliminate from your nutrition.  Once you look at oil as a pleasure or indulgent ingredient, your health with vastly improve!
