The bottles of yellow oil on the supermarket shelves are labeled heart-healthy but they are in actuality damaging for our health (and the heart). These seed oils are unstable fats extruded from seeds that are not meant for human consumption. They are deodorized and colorized to make them look and taste appealing, but they are rancid and difficult to digest. They can (and do) lead to a host of health conditions from obesity, to cancer, to diabetes, to premature aging.
Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, describes the issues with these oils: canola, safflower, sunflower, soy and more. Sally explains how to spot the seed oils in our foods and how to swap them out of the diet.
