For years, doctors have been advising us to choose vegetable oils like, canola and soy, over other oils such as, coconut oil and butter. As it turns out, this well intended advice was bad advice.

You see, vegetable oils like: soy, corn, canola, cotton seed, sunflower, and safflower, are all refined oils, which means that they’ve been exposed to very high temperatures, and caustic chemicals which can make them an unhealthy option.

Refined vegetable oils are also high in inflammatory omega 6 fats. The combination of too many omega 6 fats in our diets, and not enough omega 3 fats, promotes the parthenogenesis of many diseases including: cardiovascular disease, cancer, inflammatory disease, and autoimmune disease. The ideal ratio of omega 6 fats to omega 3 fats is 1-1. In the common western diet, however, the ratio is closer to 16 to 1, with the amount of Omega 3’s being severely deficient.

We now know that Instead of using vegetable oils, it’s better to choose healthier oils like coconut oil, olive oil, butter, and gee, for cooking, baking, and salads. These oils are anti-inflammatory. They help support vascular, heart, and brain health. When shopping for groceries, be sure to check labels so you can avoid inadvertently purchasing and consuming unhealthy, and potentially dangerous, oils.
