Desirable change

To create awareness among the public; young and old about the consequences
of re-using used cooking oil for cooking food. In addition to that, to provide them
the alternatives to using cooking oil.

The recent scientific studies by Dr Csallany from University of Minnesota shows


that used cooking oil contains toxic compound called HNE which will increase the
chances of getting heart disease, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and
liver disease, to name a few. Therefore, we feel it is important for the public to
aware of this new finding.

Cooking food using cooking oil is not the only mean to cooking. So we want to
remind people or introduce to the public the several different methods of cooking.
These include steam cooking, grill cooking and the use of cooking spray.
For this information to reach the public, we come up with a plan to make a
brochure which instead of printing mass copies by ourselves, we are going send
a prototype copy of the brochure to the Ministry of Health in hopes that they
would consider of distributing copies of the brochure.
