Good Oil and Bad Oil

Since 2016, the American Heart Association’s video on youtube had recommended a mixture of good and bad oils within their Healthy Cooking Oils 101 Video. Now however, many Doctors are speaking out and it’s time that we do our research and learn to discern what’s truly healthy vs. what’s not.

There is Four Major Types of Fats

There are four major fats in food:

  • Saturated fats
  • Transfats
  • Monounsaturated fats
  • Polyunsaturated fats

Saturated Fat

The majority of saturated fat comes from the animal kingdom. Contrary to many beliefs, saturated fat is actually very healthy for humans. As long as these fatty oils are from organic, grass-fed, and natural products that have not been altered/tampred, then they have the following benefits:

  • Improved heart and lung (cardiovascular system)
  • Build and maintain a strong, healthy immune system, nerves and cell functions
  • Build and maintain strong bones
  • Supports healthy organs (brain, heart and lungs, liver, kidneys, bladder, intestines, etc.)
  • Promotes proper nerve and cell functions

Saturated fat is very good for overall physical health, it does not affect the cholesterol level as the body makes and needs them daily.

Saturated fats are found in:

Coconut, Butter, Cheese, Red Meat, Lard, Ghee and Other-Based Foods

>> Organic, grass-fed animal products are healthier.

Trans fats 

Many of us have often known that any ingredients with trans fat is a no-no; however, many of us did not realize that the propanda of coffee and a donut was actually a very unhealthy one. For trans fat has been hidden in all our sweet treats and processed food.

  • Commercial baked goods such as biscuits, cakes, cookies, crackers and pie crusts.
  • Fried foods, including french fries, doughnuts and fried chicken.
  • Microwave popcorn.
  • Frozen pizza.
  • Refrigerated dough, such as biscuits and rolls.
  • Nondairy coffee creamer.
  • Shortening, stick margarine and spreads

What Experts Say:

“Trans fat is considered the worst type of fat to eat. Unlike other dietary fats, trans fats — also called trans-fatty acids — raise “bad” cholesterol and also lowers “good” cholesterol. A diet laden with trans fats increases the risk of heart disease, the leading killer of adults.” – Trans fat is double trouble for heart health – Mayo Clinic

Monounsaturated Fat/Omega 9

Monounsaturated fat comes from the plant kingdom. When they are harvested and prepared properly as needed, they help nurture our bodies and keep us healthy. For example, avocados, olives, and seeds can be nutritious when they are cold-pressed and their oils are undamaged, especially by heat or chemicals. Nuts, if eaten whole may need to be soaked or roasted first.

  • Improved heart and lung (cardiovascular system)
  • Build and maintain a strong, healthy immune system
  • Promotes healthy brain, body, and cell functions

High monounsaturated fats are found in:

  • Avocados, olive
  • Nuts such as almonds, hazelnuts, macadamia, peanuts and pecans
  • Seeds such as pumpkin and sesame seeds

It’s important to note that many plant-based cooking oils have been over-processed, refined, transformed, and altered by heat and chemicals which have caused an unhealthy mutation that is no longer healthy for humans.

>> Do not use these oils for High-Heat Cooking.
>> Naturally cold-pressed is the best.

Polyunsaturated Fat / Omega 6

As a type of polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA), omega-6 help stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism, and maintain the reproductive system. – Omega-6 fatty acids Information | Mount Sinai – New York


High Polyunsaturated fats are found in:

  • Canola, corn and soybean
  • Chai, cottonseed and flaxseed oils
  • Sunflower and safflower
  • Walnuts
  • Fish
  • Vegetable oil

It’s important to note that many plant-based cooking oils have been over-processed, refined, transformed, and altered by heat and chemicals which have caused an unhealthy mutation that is no longer healthy for humans.

Contrary to today’s healthy belief system, the majority of the seed oils that are sold are extremely unhealthy. Many studies and researchers have come to realize that the following oils are actually harmful, and could be the cause of weight gain, chronic inflammation, and various diseases (cancer, diabetes, heart, and other organ failures, etc).

  • Canola oil, cottonseed, and soybean oil
  • Safflower and sunflower oils
  • Grapeseed oil
  • Vegetable oil (gmo corn/canola/soybean)

>> Do not use these oils for High-Heat Cooking.
>> Naturally cold-pressed is the best.
>> Avoid all seed oils that have been processed and altered by heat and harsh chemicals.
