They say canola oil is “heart healthy” and a good source of monounsaturated fats similar to olive oil. Nothing could be further from the truth.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air we breathe inside our homes and offices can be five times more polluted than the air outside, and this may be affecting your health and the health of your family members.
“Indoor air quality can be worse than outdoor air quality in almost every case,” according to William J. Calhoun, MD, professor of medicine and vice chair of the department of medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.
That’s because enclosed spaces like homes and offices allow pollutants to accumulate and concentrate in the very places where we spend almost 90% of our time.
