Everything you need to know about palm oil


Why is it so bad? Which everyday products contain palm oil? Are there alternatives? The digital newspaper “Público.es” devotes an article to health and environmental impact of palm oil. Including a reference to the research on the relationship between fat and metastasis performed by Salvador Aznar Benitah and Gloria Pascual at IRB Barcelona.

In the study, published in Nature, the researchers reveal that, in mice, the human oral cancer cells that are most likely to migrate from primary tumors are marked by the surface protein CD36—a scavenger receptor that binds fatty acids.
