Cooking Oil

When I was researching how vegetable oil is processed. I discovered they use the petroleum solvent hexane to help get more oil from the seed. Then boil the solvent off. What if they don’t don’t boil all the solvent off and what happens when you put the solvent into the mix. Does it make a new brew. To make you glow in the dark.

Don’t think of just your own cooking with oil, but what about those french fries? What were the herbicides used to go the seed source to make the oil?

What about pesticide and any fungicides? Then there is the whole genetic engineering of the seed (gmo). I know everyone is on the gmo thing, don’t forget the process.

Since I am on a roll. What is in the water the crop is grown with and don’t forget the soil. There is a lot to all this stuff. Don’t get hung up on one thing.

Grow your own or at least grow something. Or have a grower, grow your own for you. Just a thought.
