Is Certified Organic healthy for you???

I love how the government has strict rules on what could be called certified organic. Hence society thinks “this must be healthy”- NOT!! Please do not ignore labels, since when is corn blue? we know from many studies Vegetable, hydrogenated and partly-hydrogenated oils including margarine, soybean oil, corn oil, crisco, peanut oil, canola oil, safflower oil and sunflower oil. canola safflower and sunflower oil is no good .. why?It is vitally important because these oils (with the major exception of olive and coconut oils) contain way too much omega 6. Over consumption of omega 6 is quite likely to be a major contributor to heart disease, cancer, autoimmune disease, and neurodegenerative disease (i.e., most disease). particularly if you’re talking about cooking with them. Polyunsaturated fatty acids (like omega 3s and 6s) are unstable when heated, and prone to oxidation—this is bad.

Paleo approach to oil is to use saturated fats for cooking (coconut oil, lard, tallow, duck fat) as they are stable in the heat.

You should try to achieve an overall balance of dietary fats from all foods, in which the omega 6 to omega 3 fat ratio is less than about 3 to 1, preferably closer to 2 to 1… The best oils are low in saturated fat and high in either polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fat… The next best bet is canola oil, with a ratio of 2.0…

From “The Paleo Diet: Loose Weight and Get Healthy by Eating the Food You Were Designed to Eat”, by Loren Coradain, Ph.D.:For the Paleo Diet
Saturated vs. unsaturated Fat

Blue chips contains all 3; canola oil, safflower and sunflower oil! Horrible…..
