TLC-Bytes … Toxic foods to avoid: BHA/BHT

BHA/BHT or simply fried oil has been used and left to cool and then re-heated and used again – like they do in some restaurants.

Why do we care?

It affects sleep, increases appetite without the body needing food/energy, and, long term, can damage liver and kidney. It is also linked to baldness, behavioral problems, cancer, fetal abnormalities, and growth retardation.

What can I do?

Avoid fast food, always use fresh oil to fry food, ensure that the food you order at any restaurant is fried in fresh oil.
