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

If Palm Oil is so much Harmful, then Govt must stop its Import. more  
What we think we save by using cheaper oils affects our health and makes us spend on medicines and health care. And we should stop importing, producing and using all those oils that negatively affect our health more  
Yes Heart problems more  
There is a need to highlight the negative features of Palm Oil and public awareness has to be made. This will act two ways. One public will avoid Palm Oil and 2nd government will think on the adverse effect. 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
