My maternal grandmother, who many of you read about in my book, has no gallbladder. My father has no gallbladder.

Diane Sanfilippo FAQs, Fats and Oils 26 Comments

(11/1/11 Note: The revised version of Loren Cordain’s The Paleo Diet no longer promotes canola oil as healthy, but at the time of this post’s original publication, the version of The Paleo Diet that I purchased was pro-canola oil.) I have been saying I should blog about this topic for months now, so here it goes. I’m keeping it pretty short …
