Vegetable oils are claimed to lower cholesterol levels, which if these claims were true, would help to protect you against heart disease (The Worlds Biggest Killer).
However… Despite lowering the LDL cholesterol, they can have disastrous effects on your health and metabolism.
Now I will share with you the reason why Vegetable oil is no good for you and what you can have instead for optimal health.
You would think Vegetable oil would be healthy because it has “Vegetable” in it… afraid not. The Term “Vegetable Oil” is just a false advertisement and not true what so ever!
Vegetable oil is made from grains, seeds and beans.
Here are some examples of what I am talking about:
Corn Oil= Grain
Canola Oil = Seed
Soybean Oil= Bean
Sunflower Oil= Seed
Safflower Oil= Seed
Peanut Oil= Bean, Yes it’s a bean not a nut.
Sesame Oil= Seed
More alarming than that though is the fact that all vegetable oils listed here are extracted using the poisonous solvent Hexane and this chemical process is responsible for over two thirds of hexane emissions in America.
Hexane processing strips the remaining nutrients from the oil, and turns a significant quantity of polyunsaturated fats into artery clogging trans fats! Forget looking for that on the nutrition label, (Nobody would buy it).
Since replacing just 2% of calories with dietary trans fat is associated with doubling your risk of death from cardiovascular disease, this is a significant health issue (Obviously).
What You Should You Use Instead?
When It comes to any food, keep in mind that where it comes from and how you store it can matter a lot.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (The Best)
Others (not just for cooking but for general health Below)
Nuts (In moderation)
VEGETABLE OIL IS NOT A FOOD. IT’S AN INDUSTRIAL PRODUCT, AND IT HAS NO PLACE IN ANYONE’S DIET!
