List of oils "good" to "bad"

Okay . . . so working down the list . . . from "good to bad" . . .

We spoke about Avocado oil and Coconut oil being the healthiest yesterday.

And next on the list would be "Olive oil".

"Olive oil" is high in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, and may help prevent Heart disease, Diabetes, Arthritis, cancer and Alzheimer's disease. So this would be another great oil to put into your diet.

Next up . . . "Sesame oil" . . . it's high in antioxidants and has strong anti-inflammatory properties. It's good for the heart, helps control blood sugar and helps treat arthritis

Okay . . . so now we're getting a little on the fence here . . . "Safflower oil" . . . is an unsaturated fatty acid which may offer health benefits such as blood sugar control, better heart health and lower levels of inflammation. BUT . . . "Safflower oil" has been known to thin the blood. It may also slow down the clotting of the blood, which may increase the risk of bleeding in people who have bleeding disorders.

Next up . . . we've now moved to the bad side of town again with . . . "Corn oil"

People consider this a healthy oil because it contains components like vitamin E and phytosterols. BUT . . . overall it's not a healthy oil at all . . . Why you ask???

Well . . . that's due to it being highly "refined" and high in inflammatory "Omega-6 fatty acids. (Tomorrow we'll talk about the Omega 6 - 3 ratio).

Not to mention . . . "Corn" is a GMO crop!

Okay . . . so "Sunflower oil" is another one we need to stay away from. It's been shown to release toxic compounds when heated at higher temperatures over time. Not to mention this is another oil that is very high in "Omega 6" fatty acids, which contribute to "inflammation" in the body.

Last up . . . the "Soybean oil" that started this conversation when we were talking about mayonnaise. "Soy" can cause mild stomach and intestinal side effects such as constipation, bloating and nausea. It can also cause allergic reactions involving rashes and itching. And "Soybeans" affect "Thyroid" function negatively.

And at the bottom of the list is Cottonseed oil and Canola oil that we spoke of the other day.

So buyer beware . . . next we'll finish this topic with the "Omega ratio".
