A non-governmental organization, New-Life Community Care Initiative, NELCCI, has cautioned rural women in Enugu State against the dangers associated with the usage of bad cooking oil.

The Executive Director of the organization, Florence Ifeanyi- Aneke gave the charge in Obioma Community, Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State, during a step-down training which came after an earlier training organized by Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa (CAPPA), for journalists and the civil society organizations in Enugu State.

Ifeanyi-Aneke told the women that Trans-Fat remains a major cause of cardiovascular diseases, urging them to avoid the usage of bad oils to checkmate the spate of cardiovascular diseases.

She advised that “even though the economy is too bad and poverty is biting harder, it is still better to stay alive and safer.

“You must all avoid the use of bad oil, as well as re-usage of oil over and over again. Some of you may use oil to fry things over and over, thinking that you are saving money, but it is not good for your health.”

“It is one of the reasons people are suffering from one sickness or the other. So, our message today is that you must avoid Trans-Fat oil; it is dangerous to your health. Those of you doing business should also save the life of others by using good oil,” she counseled the women.
