A relatively new creation, vegetable oil is suspected to be the cause of heart disease and diabetes. Great video...
New UC Riverside research shows soybean oil not only leads to obesity and diabetes, but could also affect neurological conditions like autism, Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, and depression.
Used for fast food frying, added to packaged foods, and fed to livestock, soybean oil is by far the most widely produced and consumed edible oil in the U.S., according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In all likelihood, it is not healthy for humans.
It certainly is not good for mice. The new study, published this month in the journal Endocrinology, compared mice fed three different diets high in fat: soybean oil, soybean oil modified to be low in linoleic acid, and coconut oil.
The same UCR research team found in 2015 that soybean oil induces obesity, diabetes, insulin resistance, and fatty liver in mice. Then in a 2017 study, the same group learned that if soybean oil is engineered to be low in linoleic acid, it induces less obesity and insulin resistance.
So you think olives, avocados, and wild salmon are poisonous? Peat may be correct about some things, but taken to the logical extreme it becomes absurd in my opinion.Nope. All unsaturated fats are not for human consumption. I am a huge Ray Peat fan and his information has changed my life.
Unsaturated fatty acids: Nutritionally essential, or toxic?
The fact that Ray Peat got it so wrong about orange juice and sugar in general, which is obviously detrimental to metabolic health, pretty much scuppers his credibility. If he says we shouldn't be eating saturated fat, well that sinks the entire boat.So you think olives, avocados, and wild salmon are poisonous?

Peat pretty much says you shouldn't lift weights or exercise due to the stress it induces and the fat it will oxidize. But he doesn't realize coffee liberates free fatty acids as well and he advocates drinking tons of coffee. It just doesn't make sense. One thing about Peat that I think he completely lacks understanding of is the principle of hormesis. The organism needs resistance and stress in small doses to get stronger and healthier. Even if that means some PUFA once in a while.
I remember one guy on Ray Peat Forum, his diet consisted of gummy bears (for gelatin and sugar), orange juice, fat-free milk, and aspirin. I'm not joking, a lot of people on that forum seem to think this type of diet is healthy.
I'm about half way through the video. They are saying lipid/cholesterol level is tied to adverse outcome. It makes sense but I think that may be a red herring. My theory is that vegetable oils cause inflammation and that is what causes a lot of problems. Maybe that is the underlying mechanism that drives the inflammatory process though.A relatively new creation, vegetable oil is suspected to be the cause of heart disease and diabetes. Great video...
