Why you should not reuse cooking oil?
When the oil was already used for cooking, that is, it was already heated; the temperatures reached in that process could have damaged it. As a result, that oil has already lost its properties and at that moment has already begun its oxidation and decomposition.
What are the negative implications of reusing oil for your health?
When starting the oxidation process, this used oil begins to generate free radicals, which are terribly harmful when they come into contact with cellular components. (Free radicals are basically molecules that are generated by toxic agents in our body). This damage to the cells in our body, can generate diseases as cancer and premature aging.
