Small Seeds of Change – Say No to Vegetable Oil

Did you know vegetable oil is hazardous to your health? I know it’s hard to believe when it’s been a staple in the kitchen your whole life. Even after I heard the research, it still took me a long time to say no to vegetable oil and switch to an alternative. Change is hard. But now I understand the destruction it can have on your body. And on the flip side, I’ve learned how amazing the good oils and fats are for you. Your food won’t taste different. Well actually, it will taste better! You won’t even know the bad stuff is gone. But your body will.

Vegetable Oil Can Hurt your Body

Vegetable oils are bad for you because they have very high levels of polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs). PUFAs are highly unstable and oxidize easily. Oxidized fats cause inflammation and mutation in cells. Oxidation can lead to all kinds of health concerns, including cancer, endometriosis, heart disease, and PCOS.

The human body’s fat make-up is about 97% saturated and monounsaturated fat. We must have fat for hormone production and rebuilding cells, but the latest research shows we need to get it from healthy traditional sources. Read more about it here
