Vegetable oils are NOT healthy, especially hydrogenated ones!

Vegetable oils are typically soy, canola, or corn and are almost completely polyunsaturated fats. Oils from soy, canola, or corn are most likely genetically modified, definitely rancid by the time they are "finished," and are BAD for your health. Thus, hydrogenation starts with a bad product, and ends with an even worse one.

You know, I honestly never thought about that, but you're totally right. I can manage to eat - and enjoy - straight coconut or olive oil in relatively large quantities, but soy, canola, and corn?  Echhh!  >:o

Imagine if, at a fancy restaurant, they brought out one of those oils to dip bread in, instead of olive oil.... LOL
