Once again I had a (thankfully mild) vertigo attack this weekend. The only thing I ate that was different was a handful (Ok, a double handful, heaping) of potato chips processed in cottonseed oil. I guess that was it.
A few minutes ago I read on the web how cottonseed oil is bad for everyone because it has pesticides, toxins, etc., but it’s cheap, so companies like to use it instead of more expensive oils. Also they say that if the packaging states “processed with cottonseed oil, sunflower oil, or canola oil”, it’s probably cottonseed oil.
So I’ll be avoiding those chips from now on. I’d like to find some that are Ok, because I really love ’em. Bet you can’t eat just one!
