Healthy Fats - Blog Entry - Feb 10, 2014
In this first edition of "Finding Balance" we'll be taking a close look at which fats you should incorporate into your daily diet and which you should steer clear of.
Industrial oils such as canola, soybean/vegetable, cottonseed and corn are toxic for humans to consume. They contain oxidized cholesterol, are high in omega-6 fatty acids, high in trans fats, create inflammation in our bodies and significantly raise our risk of cardiovascular disease. When the oils are extracted, hexane is used as a solvent. The oils are then refined, bleached and deodorized. Since the oils are heated to very high temperatures, it is necessary to deodorize them because of their rancidity. Bleaching the oils give them a clear “pure” color. Some people even have sensitivities to these oils; it disrupts their digestion terribly when eating foods that contain industrial oils.Excellent replacements include: palm oil, coconut oil, grass-fed ghee, grass-fed butter, real olive oil, and animal fats such as grass-fed tallow and pastured lard. Most of the healthcare crisis in America can be resolved by eating mostly wholesome foods.
