    I was surprised to see grape-seed oil on your list of toxic oils. I was under the impression that grape seed oil was one of the superior oils to cook with…although I must admit I have never researched this myself, and have only gone on hear-say.

      Hi Ruth, thanks for the question; it inspired me to search a little deeper into grape seed oil. I’m finding that grape seed oil is one of the recent popular “health fad foods”.

It is also high in Omega-6 fatty acids, which are harmful in excess. Here is a very helpful article I found on it from a website I source often and have come to trust for good information:
