All vegetable oils are harmful

Note: this post has been updated in January 2022.

All Vegetable Oils Are Harmful to Our Health

I have read many articles from mainstream nutrition organizations, and they recommend we use these oils because according to them, unsaturated fats are much healthier than saturated fats. OK, let’s agree if that is true then all oils must be healthy.

Maybe the widespread misunderstanding on all oils is fueled by lazy journalism. It is possible that lazy journalists and maybe misinformed journalists are the biggest source of misinformation about food for the average American. – via The 8 Least Healthy Vegetable Oils, According To An MD

Why do so many individuals perceive vegetable oils as being healthy? Maybe it is because they have the word “vegetable” in them and that makes them healthy in their mind. If vegetables are good for you to eat, it follows that the oil of vegetables must be good also. The mainstream media has a lot to do with this perception. – via Are Vegetable Oils Really Healthier for Your Heart?

However, many studies have now demonstrated and support the facts that these oils can cause serious harm to your health. Olive oil is an example; it is nothing but liquid fat, but you read about it all the time as being a healthy oil, and we should use it in almost everything.

I love this video by Dr. Esselstyn, it presents the case that all oils are bad for your health!

What do you think of Dr. Esselstyn’s video on consuming no oils? Do you agree or not?  Do you or does someone you know follow his advice?  His position again is to be healthy you must consume a plant-based diet with no added oils!

With the research I have done, I do agree with the idea that oils are not good for you or your health.  I follow Dr. Esselstyn's advice and try to avoid all oils in my diet.

Conclusion - Get away from toxic oils

Science confirms that a diet rich in whole, plant-based foods can help you live to the fullest and still get adequate protein. In fact, a growing number of physicians advocate a completely plant-based diet for many of their patients who suffer from diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Check out these great sources:
