I’ve committed myself to helping people improve their lives via exercise, nutrition, and the right mental attitude. In this post I’m sharing the dangers of using palm oil (and palm kernel oil) and why you should steer clear of any products that list it as an ingredient.
Palm oil, made from the fruit of the oil palm tree is one of the most widely produced edible fats in the world. The oil palm yields two types of oil: One is extracted from the flesh of the fruit (palm oil), and the other from the seed, or kernel (palm kernel oil). Much of the commonly used palm oil is in an oxidized [processed] form. •
Once the oil is oxidized, it damages your DNA, inflames your heart tissue, and raises your risk for several types of cancer.• Producing palm oil in large enough quantities to meet a growing demand requires farmers across Southeast Asia to clear huge swaths of biodiversity-rich tropical rainforest to make room for massive palm plantations. Today palm oil production is the largest cause of deforestation in Indonesia and other equatorial countries with dwindling expanses of tropical rainforest.• Here are commonly used oils you should 100% avoid ingesting: canola, corn, cottonseed, peanut (sorry Chik-Fil-A lovers), safflower, soybean, and sunflower.
