breastmilk is best 4 babies? maybe human fat is healthiest 4 frying.

Nope, because we are top level predators our fats tent to contain rather high concentrations of persistent organic pollutants like DDT. I once read that average Americans were not fit for human consumption because of this. Though the levels may have dropped a bit, I'd still go with olive oil.

You better include a lot of average UKnians. The UK was awash in DDT too.
