MYTH 👉 Processed Seed & Vegetable Oils Are Healthy ❌
Many people perceive vegetable & seed oils as healthy. Maybe it's because they have the word "vegetable" in them (vegetables are good for you, so vegetable oil must be good too, right?) Even the mainstream nutrition organizations recommend that we eat them, because according to them, unsaturated fats are much healthier than saturated fats.
However, many studies have now demonstrated that these oils can cause serious harm. The composition of the fatty acids in them is different than anything we were ever exposed to throughout evolution. This is leading to physiological changes within our bodies and contributing to multiple diseases.
Humans only started consuming them about a 100 years ago, because we didn't have the technology to process them until then.
Yet, somehow the nutrition geniuses figured that these would somehow be very healthy for humans and certainly better than the "dangerous" saturated fats.
These oils, which include soybean oil, sunflower oil, corn oil, canola oil, cottonseed oil, safflower oil and a few others are very high in polyunsaturated Omega-6 fatty acids, which are harmful in excess and can contribute to inflammation.
Despite these oils being recommended to reduce heart disease, there are actually multiple studies showing that they increase the risk.
However these oils are actually recommended by the beloved organizations that are supposed to be in charge of protecting our health.
This is one example of where blindly following the conventional nutritional wisdom can put you in an early grave.
SUMMARY: Processed seed & vegetable oils are very UNHEALTHY, loaded with Omega-6 fatty acids and trans fats that can contribute to disease.
