I can't find any articles from legitimate websites that say canola oil is bad for you. In fact, the only ones who say that seem to be the same ones that think coconut oil is healthy. If you want to use that stuff, feel free, but I'm not getting anywhere near it.
My LDL is 37 and I'm not about to risk that. Report
The internet is a weird place. I was reading 10 Interesting Facts about Your Heart at
sting-heart-facts.html and I somehow ended up here. Lots of a good reads on SparkPeople, I even made an account because of this! Report
Great information! Report
Becky Hand seems stuck inthe past when giving us information about healthy fats and grains. Canola and soybean are NOT healthy oils. Grains, especially wheat, raise our blood sugars. Both groups create inflammation which is bad for our hearts. Report
Although this article is from 2011, I think most of the information is right on. We often hear that it's OK to eat egg yolks. Well yeah, but within reason and even the Egg Council admits that 25 to 30% of the population have a genetic need to limit dietary cholesterol. That's a LOT of people! I'm one of them. As for fats, yes HEALTHY fats are fine, but most people want to eat the chocolate cake not the oily salmon. Report
Wish there was a way to EDIT our comments.
Wanted to add kudos to accurate info re: fruits/vegetables & refined (added) sugars.
...and fix a typo. Report
Agree with sunshine65--article needs to be updated, all sources are from 2011.
One of the problems with Canola & Soybean oil is the prevalence of GMO sources.
Eggs (yolks) are no longer vilified. Report
I was going to say that also as I heard that saturated fats are apparently not necessarily the villains that they were once thought of as. My grandpa ate a diet high in meat and lived to be 97 and did not have any heart problems. Report
This article needs to be rewritten. A lot of the sodium, fat and cholesterol information is totally wrong by todays scientific studies. Please replace this with a new article. Report
Very nice article! Report
Great article. Report
Kudos to KPILVER, 2SNOWCRANES and DMATTISON :)) Thankfully people are starting to pay attention to the problems with wheat and other carbs. Try no sugar and no grains for 2 weeks. Your body will thank you. There are low carb teams here to help. Report
