Default Soybean Oil Question

I have been reading many negative things about soy and it made me think that some of the meat that I am able to eat free thanks to work is cooked with soybean oil on the grill. Would 1-4 tablespoons/day (rough estimation based on anywhere from 0-18ozs of meet cooked with grill sprayed with soybean oil) be a cause for concern? I do consume fish oil and do not eat any other sources of soy or any other omega 6 fats. I believe I am ok from the fatty acid balance perspective but wonder if that exceeds a moderate amount of soy consumption. Opinions welcome.

Yep I am not a big fan of high soy oil consumption.....may want to just rotate it with some canola oil.....walnut oil.....coconut oil.

I'm guessing he works in a restaurant or something because he said "gets at work for free" so changing the oil is most likely not a possibility.

Would that little amount of soybean oil be detrimental enough to offset the amount of food he gets for free?

I dont see a problem with that...eat some veggies with it to sop up any radicals produced...sup with fish oil. Free food, sign me up!
