How to avoid fraudulent olive oil

Did you know that the majority of imported olive oil has been adulterated?  Many are either rancid or cut with toxic seed oils like canola, sunflower, safflower or soy.  

Seed and vegetable oils contain a massive amount of linoleic acid which results in excess oxidative stress, metabolism and mitochondrial dysfunction, obesity and radical loss of energy production. It also impairs apoptosis, fostering cancer growth. As the use of these oils has greatly increased in the past 100 years, so has the rate of chronic disease. These include commonly used vegetable, canola, peanut, sunflower, safflower, corn and soybean oils.

Because of the high profits tied to phony olive oil sales, olive oil imported from Italy may also be tied to organized crime.  

If you're consuming olive oil to realize all of its amazing health benefits, you need to make sure it's pure. The tips in slides should help!
