The purpose of this site is to collect lab research by medical doctors about herbs that are proven to treat illnesses and counter the false attacks on herbs by the medical industry and false claims by alternative medicine. I let the science tell the facts.

Hydrogenated oils & Low Fat Diets

Related articles and research: oils

A few health experts warn about synthetic oils such as hydrogenated oils. The low fat diets add to this by replacing natural oils with hydrogenated oils. Somehow the medical and food industries have subscribed to the theory's of low fat diets. Oils from meats have been painted with a black tar brush as being the cause of disease and obesity. Many believe that eliminating meat oils causes more harm than good. It is a proven fact that excessive meats cause health issues. However total elimination is worse. A ratio of 25% oils from meat is recommended by some researchers, who also warn that a diet without meat oils does not provide essential amino acids needed to run the body. They state these essential amino acids cannot be obtained with a strict vegetarian diet.

Report number one below gives some reasons for this and states cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity are due to hydrogenated oils causing our cells to become rigid which then prevents proper cell to cell communication. Or in other words causes our cells to stop transfer of essential chemistry required for healthy function of our entire body. If cells cannot transfer chemical signaling we become sick.

Since disease is increasing at a similar rate to the increase of low fat diets, could it be, that low fat diets with hydrogenated oils is a root cause of disease?

It certainly deserves investigation!!!

1. I specialize in providing scientific research, this article is a slight deviation and is mostly for reference. I will be adding scientific reports to verify its, as yet unproven theories. "Here is more information about what really causes type 2 diabetes: "Another lipid in a cell wall is cholesterol. And you thought it was a terrible thing. The cholesterol in each one of your cells forms a "hydrophobic" bond within the cell wall. Hydrophobic means "fear of water." It’s a cute way to describe this function of our cells, but in our lives it simply describes the reason we don’t melt in a rainstorm or fall apart when we take a shower or bath. Our cells resist water. Without this resistance, we would be water-soluble and we'd all dissolve in a rainstorm. Our diets in this country (and in Budwig’s country at the time) lack these highly unsaturated fatty acids and contain an excess of man-made oils known as trans fats (or partially hydrogenated oils). These oils are very much like cholesterol and our bodies cannot tell the difference. These oils get into our cell walls and destroy the electrical charge. Without the charge, our cells start to suffocate. Without the oxygen, the only way the cell can replicate is anaerobically. (They also are very tough oils and have a 20-year shelf life. They impede the process of cellular exchange, or letting nutrition in and letting wastes out. Trans fats are also responsible for Type II diabetes, since insulin is a very large molecule it has a difficult time passing through a cell wall created with man-made fats and not cholesterol.) In other words, trans-fatty acids attach themselves to the cell walls, and because they are a different type and shape of molecule, make the cell walls "rigid," and the large glucose molecules cannot penetrate the cell walls and get into the cells. Here is a more detailed way to explain it (taken from an email from a medical doctor): "Insulin binds with a cell wall receptor that causes a transport molecule to come to the wall and escort the glucose/ascorbate to where it is needed. The trouble is that it can't easily come through a port made of the wrong fatty acids. The cell may still have some good ports so increasing insulin will still help. Over time as the body continues to store excess glucose as triglyceride in fat cells and doesn't burn fat the person becomes obese--just look around you, it's everywhere...It is absolutely critical to avoid ALL trans-fatty acids, ALL hydrogenated oils, ALL CANOLA OIL, ALL margarine and ALL other "bad fats" like the plague, because they ARE A PLAUGUE on humanity!!!...I cannot emphasize enough that you must take significantly MORE omega 3 than omega 6"

This is an interesting report because it is a completely different approach than the rest of the world is teaching. Everyone in both the traditional and alternative health industries are saying genes, obesity and insulin production are the causes of diabetes. What if this report statements are right? If they are right it suggests that everyone else is looking in the wrong direction. Statistics suggest one third of us have diabetes and it is increasing. That statistic suggests that the traditional theories about diabetes and disease are not addressing the root causes. We should be reducing the incidences of diabetes, obesity and heart disease not increasing it.

2. Pub Med "The possible relationship between consumption of trans fatty acids (TFAs) and risk of insulin resistance or development of diabetes mellitus type II has been considered by a number of human and animal studies over the past decade. This review evaluates the evidence, and concludes that there is limited evidence for a weak association at high TFA intakes, but very little convincing evidence that habitual exposure as part of a standard western diet has a significant contribution to risk of diabetes or insulin resistance. The possibility of increased risk for individuals with particular genotypes (such as the FABP2 Thr54 allele) is of interest, but further work would be required to provide sufficient evidence of any association." This report states high meat consumption (western diet) is not the cause of obesity and diabetes. This is interesting because it conflicts with thousands of other reports that state high meat and fatty acids cause health risks. It is saying they have evaluated the reports that fatty acids cause problems and that high fatty acids is not the cause. Their findings suggest that if high fatty acids are not the cause of health problems, yet health problems are increasing, something else is causing the increase.
