Seed oils found in the freezer aisle, organic hummus, or even healthy salad dressings are evil. They are an industrial byproduct that can kill. Seed oils create cancerous and carcinogenic effects that wreak havoc on the body.

Yes, many seed oils are poison.

What’s the big deal with seed based oils?

Refined and processed seed oils have only come into mass production in the late 20th century.

These are not artesian olive oils forged from a laborious cold-pressing process. Seed oils are extracted from various plants via a chemical solvent process.

Are all seed oils poison?

The short answer is no, not all seed oils are harmful to your health. Coconut and high-quality olive oil are great as part of a balanced diet when consumed without excess.

Seed oils most scientists suggest moderating or staying away from altogether:

  • soybean oil
  • corn oil
  • vegetable oil
  • cottonseed oil
  • sunflower oil
  • peanut oil
  • sesame oil
  • rice bran oil

Are Seed Oils Bad for you?

Yes, seed oils are bad for you and can cause a myriad of health issues when consumed. The most shocking thing is that almost all foods contain seed oils. Check your fridge you will see in amazement or horror how prevalent seed oils are.

Seed Oils and Obesity

A study by the Journal of Nutrition compared seed oil to traditional fat consumption.  Rats studied receiving fat from safflower oil had a 12.3% increase in weight. This is compared to rats eating the same amount of fat but from traditional sources.

This would equate to 23 extra pounds of body fat gained by the average human.

Seed oils will slow the body’s metabolism and insure the human body holds more weight. Removing seed oils from your diet can assist with losing weight and better health.

Seed Oils and Inflammation

Seed oils have a lot of polyunsaturated fats. This causes a reduction in energy levels along with body inflammation. These fats can lead to obesity, heart damage, and diabetes.

A recent study by nih.gov revealed the following proving seed oils cause inflammation:

Despite the consistency of favorable recommendations regarding dietary LA, the possibility that this fatty acid contributes to excess inflammation has received considerable attention. The primary basis of concern is that large amounts of LA will prompt excessive formation of arachidonic acid (AA) and subsequent synthesis of pro-inflammatory eicosanoids (e.g., prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), leukotriene B4 (LTB4) and thromboxane A4 (TXA2).610 Elevated pro-inflammatory eicosanoid generation could drive up other biomarkers of inflammation (e.g., interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), C-reactive protein (CRP)) that are associated with increased incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancer and other chronic diseases.

The industrial extraction of these seed oils causes an inflammatory response in humans. This is due to oxidation both prior to and after consumption by humans.

Yes, Seed oils cause inflammation. Eating whole and unprocessed foods can prevent the body’s inflammatory response.

There is one seed oil that we endorse and that is due to it being created organically and without industrial processes. If you are looking to help with inflammation check out our review of the best organic black seed oils.

Seed Oils and Sunburn

The correlation between seed oils and sunburn is well known and studied for decades. While not as serious as obesity and cancer sunburn is not a joke.

A 1987 study showed that healthy fats and antioxidants can prevent sunburn. Seed oils have the opposite effect and can in face increase the risk of sunburn.  A diet filled with fruits, vegetables, and grass-fed meat creates a healthy foundation. Healthy fats and salmon are also shown to help in preventing sunburn caused by seed oils.

Seed oils including soybean, vegetable, shortening, hydrogenated, corn, margarine, sunflower, and safflower will make your skin sensitive to sun damage.

Not only does the elimination of seed oils prevent obesity but it helps with day-to-day health as well.

Seed oils and sunburn are absolutely related and the notion that you need high SPF suntan lotion is a falsehood propagated over the years.

If you are hitting the beach this summer, avoid the sunburn and cut seed oils out of your diet.

Seed Oils and Cancer

The most serious of issues is the relationship between seed oils and cancer.

A recent study by the Los Angeles Veterans Administration found a staggering revelation. When the fat is consumed equally in two separate groups. Those people obtaining fat from vegetable oils were 82% more likely to die of cancer. This number is twice as high as heavy tobacco smokers.

seed-oils-cancer

This study, peer-reviewed, is absolutely shocking to us. Consuming seed oils is almost guaranteeing a death caused by cancer.

Cut out seed oils from your diet now.

Seed Oils in Conclusion

Look at the ingredients of your food you are consuming large amounts of seed oils. Mayonnaise, salad dressings, and frozen chicken are all laced with industrially processed oils.

This can be detrimental to your health, life, and fitness.

You do not need to have a strict workout routine or exact calorie counting regiment in your diet. You only need to remove seed oils from your everyday caloric intake.

This may appear difficult at first but with time habits become your reality. Forge a lifestyle you can be proud of. Grow, prosper and thrive in the 21st century where everything is trying to harm your health.

What do you think about seed oils? Are they poisonous? A hip new diet fad? or somewhere in-between.

After several near-death surgeries and a heart attack at 29, I decided to get serious about my health and went from 278lbs to 181lbs in only six months. How? I built an entire team, including a personal trainer, nutritionist, psychologist, physical therapist, and sports masseuse. Having the same team as Hollywood stars allowed me to reach my goals fast and produce insane results.
