There is an element of truth to this. High-oleic oilseeds yield a healthful

Don't believe everything you read, or assume the context of remarks like
that, to be relevant. But even if that were true in the vegetable oil

Farmers are smart enough to produce crops with the resources at hand. They
use a lot of petroleum now because the price is low.
