Palm Oil - Need a movement against it
From biscuits to chocolates,fried stuff, everything has palm oil. It is the biggest health hazard & an environmental disaster. Palm oil is the largest that's imported.
India grows so much coconut, ground nut etc but still we import 70% of our edible oil consumption.
Can this circle with LocalCircles assist get the Govt to ban palm oil import over a 1 year period. I am sure alternatives will emerge.
That biscuit maker Parle will start using a better oil instead. more

But who can afford olive or canola oil Sir? For the health of the people of India, the government needs to stop the import of Palm oil and get the farmers to produce other oil seeds so that we are self sufficient. Sunflower, safflower, peanut, etc are good oils which can be used instead of palm oil. more
