Negative value: Not only does mineral oil have no nutritional value but it can interfere with the absorption of fat soluble vitamins (a, d, e and k). I do not recommend the use of mineral oil and, if ever used, should only be used on rare occasions. See http://www.Nationalmssociety.Org/treating-ms/medications/mineral-oil.
