Adulterated cooking oil can cause heart diseases

Heart disease expert, Prof. Oladipupo Akinkugbe, has cautioned Africans against cooking with adulterated vegetable oil.
Akinkugbe made the appeal during an endorsement and certificate presentation ceremony to PZ Wilmar Limited, makers of Mamador cooking oil in Lagos.
According to the heart specialist, regular consumption of contaminated cooking oil can cause heart diseases and cancer of the stomach.
He advised consumers to buy only oil that had received certification for consumption.
He said, “Globally, high cholesterol in various sources of oil has been a major risk factor for heart diseases among people of all ages. You must ensure that you are not at risk for such diseases through your diet.
“We advise Africans to only cook with oil that have undergone rigorous test by scientists. They can check for a sign of the heart when buying them.”
