Sardines in Soybean Oil – Dangerous Combination

sardines in soy oil

The threat seems rather disturbing as the media and governments are lax about reporting the dangers of this ingredients. Corporations large and small continue to inject this disastrous substance in food, which is an unnecessary additive.
