Firstly, why do they dump TOXIC veg/seed oils into so many
products? Because it is cheap.
Secondly, do they know it is TOXIC? Yep.
Lastly, why do they then dump in in products like baby formula? Because it is cheap and they do not care about your health over PROFIT. See another great article here.
Are you sure you want that doughnut?
Ok if you wish to eat a perfectly formulated obesogenic combination for yourself, but please do not give it in the name of a special occasion.
The list of ingredients is FRIGHTENING and people give this as a treat. What!?! It is probably kinder to punch them in the arm. Don’t punch anyone, but at least that bruising goes away. However, internal bruising (inflammation) can, and does, lead to illness and disease.
Imagine giving someone a box of this carbage? Yikes. What a lovely combination of TOXIC artery clogging veg/seed oil, sugar, grains (same as sugar), chemicals, preservatives and whatever other garbage these type of companies dump in there.

5. Cholesterol Craziness
When did heart disease start getting out of control? Precisely when society switched from stable, saturated fats to vegetable and seed oils. This switch came via the saturated fat and cholesterol scare prompted by Ancel Keys and the bogus lipid hypothesis, which purported to link saturated fat and high cholesterol with heart disease.
That myth has been thoroughly debunked, yet we’re still suffering the consequences of the scare. In fact, it’s still being pushed today by Big Agriculture — the people who produce these oils — and government institutions who are funded by Big Agriculture.
The craziness is that vegetable oils are promoted as improving cholesterol. What vegetable oils do in many cases is reduce total cholesterol numbers. What nobody told you is that total cholesterol numbers are meaningless. 75% of heart attack patients have a lipid panel that does not indicate high risk for heart attack. Relying on total cholesterol numbers (which is the standard panel) is worse than flipping a coin.
So, what does matter? The size and type of cholesterol is what matters. And while vegetable oils may lower total cholesterol, they skew the size and type of the particles in the wrong direction. If you want more information on understanding cholesterol in clear terms, check out my podcast interview with Jimmy Moore about his new BOOK, Cholesterol Clarity.
The need to know information is this: if your goal is a healthy heart, vegetable oils are literally killing you.

3. Gut Disruption
One of the first things you learn about gluten is it’s ability to disrupt gut flora and function. A lot of the improvements you see in your body when you go gluten-free are due to the healing of systemic inflammation as your body is no longer spending every waking minute attacking ingested gluten or your own tissue depending on your condition.
Unfortunately, if you’re consuming vegetable oils, you’re not able to heal completely. If you’re following strategies to heal your gut, but you’re still consuming vegetable oils, you’re taking one step forward and two steps back.
4. Immune Suppression
If you’re tired of getting sick — which is a huge annoyance, right? — then you have to do things that strengthen your immune system. Since your gut houses 80% of your immune system, keeping your gut functioning properly and your healthy gut flora happy goes a long way toward sick-proofing yourself.

2. Lopsided Omega-6 to Omega-3 Ratios
We all know how important it is to reduce inflammation.
One way is to consume fats that are considered high in omega-3s (O3) rather than high doses of omega-6s (O6) because O3s have the unique ability to calm the flames of systemic inflammation. But that’s not the whole story.
What matters most is our ratio of O3 fats to O6 fats. The optimal ratio is 1 to 1. Many Americans — due to the overconsumption of O6 fats — are hovering around the 30:1 mark.
Vegetable and seed oils are mostly comprised of O6 fats. Even Canola Oil, which is touted as “heart healthy” and “packed with O3 fats” is a poor choice because the O3 fats in Canola Oil are typically rancid by the time you consume them.

Are Vegetable Oils Bad for You?
A better question might be: “Did you know vegetable oils (actually seed oils) are not fit for human consumption?”
From a Recent Primed Couple:
“Hey Chad .. Mary accidentely consumed vegatable oil last night … and was sick for the entire night. 😦
Looks like both of our bodies are responding strongly when we re-introduce poison into our systems.”
This cool quote from Hippocrates could relate to grains, sugar, non-fermented soy, low-fat stuff and vegetable/seed oils. When you consume these frankenfoods you are doing harm to yourself.
Here is part 1 of 6 reasons to avoid toxic vegetable oil at all costs. There are a lot more as you can read here from Healthy Holistic Living. He mentions 11. Wow.
Summary of what you’ll learn below:
Catherine Shanahan, MD “…discovered that every single patient that just had a heart attack had consumed foods made with vegetable oils with their last meal before the heart attack…”

People Who Would Never Touch Fries (I am making an educated guess)
LeBron, Kobe and Novak Djokovic know that fries cooked in vegetable oil can be deadly seeing they immediately constrict your arteries upon eating them. They all follow the Primed/LCHF way of eating real food.
Similarly, celebrities like Jessica Biel, Megan Fox, Matthew McConaughey, Miley Cyrus and Gwyneth Paltrow want to maintain a healthy mind and body so they too would avoid anything cooked in vegetable oil seeing it is but a molecule away from being plastic!
