They’re on our salads and in our frying pans but which oils are best for different uses, and which are best for us? From avocado to grapeseed, sunflower to soy, Carolyn takes us on a tour of the choices before us. Are table spreads better for us than butter? Learn the shocking truth about the controversial oil that’s in 90 percent of our table spreads – palm oil. And could the BBQ cause cancer?
