Frying in Extra Virgin Olive Oil?

Hello-Just because a product is on the market doesn;t mean it is entirely safe to cook with.
Grapeseed oil and Canola oil are probably two of the worst.
Just do an internet search for both of them on the problems with the two oils.
Grapeseed is nothing more than poison to your system and Canola oil comes from Canada and was originally developed to lubricate machinery. It wasn;t selling real well so the CA FDA was paid off to approve it for human consumption. Then the US FDA was also paid off to approve it.
Please don;t use either of these oils for cooking or salads. Just use EVOO and be safe.
