NOTE: Choose oils that are unrefined, unheated, and extra virgin in quality to use medicinally or as a dietary supplement. Choose nuts that are either raw or dry roasted without added salt if cooked. Avoid peanut butter whenever possible -- although children can digest peanut butter, it causes massive liver build up; if you have a quick metabolism & healthy liver, it's okay to have organic peanut butter. Non-organic is grown together with cotton, which is heavily sprayed with chemicals due to the fungus factor.
