The Shocking Origin of Vegetable Oil — Garbage!

Looking back over the last 40 years, it’s hard to understand how we could have been so gullible. We believed that fat, and more specifically saturated fat (found primarily in animal foods), was thought to increase cholesterol and cause heart disease. Instead, we should switch to ‘heart healthy’ vegetable oils, like cottonseed, corn, safflower and soy oils. But recent evidence suggests this was a Faustian bargain. The industrially processed seed oils were much, much worse. It was all a terrible mistake that began with Crisco.

Put the PUFAs Down and Stop Gulping that Fish Oil

"...Fish oils remain liquid even at cold temperatures and prevent fish from freezing in very cold water. In an oxygen rich and warm environment like your body, however, the structure of these fats is not stable and breaks down easily into health deteriorating substances. The biochemistry of fish oils and our body does not match. End of story. We have lost context." Rob Turner

Saturated Fat: Those were thought to be unhealthy… precisely the opposite of what we now know to be true

"In Woody Allen's 1973 movie, Sleeper, the protagonist woke up after being frozen for 200 years, to find that saturated fats were health foods. At the time the movie was made, that had already been established (e.g., Hartroft and Porta, 1968 edition of Present Knowledge in Nutrition, who showed that adequate saturated fat in the diet helped to protect against the formation of lipofuscin)."
