It’s a useful product that’s relatively harmless when used correctly. So what’s the problem? The trouble is that growers tend to use land that might otherwise harbor endangered species for growing these trees. Palm oil trees grow in the same environment as tropical rainforests, which are a source of medicine, food and other materials, aside from being a vibrant ecosystem. Deforestation of the rainforests is also having a significant effect on climate change since it contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions. Palm Oil: Friend or Foe?

Mostly I do not, but it's a good idea. I stopped eating Doritos and palm oil is one of the reasons I eat more whole plant foods rather than processed foods, but apart from that I don't much, so it's a bit haphazard.

I know that reading through the sometimes massive array of ingredients on packaging is boring, confusing and sometimes extremely dis heartening but man, if you feel that you don't want to be responsible for the raping of our planet by huge companies, do it!

The alternative? The one that I prefer.................. cook and eat as much as you can made at home from the raw ingredients
