Fried foods and your heart...

New research study just published:

Foods Fried in Healthier Oil Not Linked to Heart Disease

Thoughts? This sounds familiar to the news that eggs weren't actually evil!

Do you eat fried foods? What oil do you use?

Hi Haylen,

We do not consume batter fried foods in our family. Only stir fry in a Japanese Wok with extra virgin little Olive Oil. No deep frying.

Our family abandoned using Canola oil due to Hexane being used in the processing. No solvent is used in processing extra virgin olive oil.

Looking back in US history we can see the changes in cooking oil by major restaurants like McDonalds. First Beef tallow, then hydrogenated vegetable oil. Now they stopped using hydrogenated due to public pressure.

Its interesting to note the decline rate in heart disease never changed thru all these "oil changes". No visible impact on NIH graphs. But at least things have been moving in the right direction, and that's good news.
