Why are Vegetable Oils Bad


I’ve seen bits and pieces discussed on the forum, but I was hoping to get a comprehensive response, and any relevant links.

I know Nina Teicholz has discussed, but was hoping a kind keto-er would forward the most relevant video or articles.

Thank you!

Google is your friend.

A quick search of “nina teicholz vegetable oils” brought me the following.

They oxidize at room (or body) temperature unlike other fats which oxidize at much higher temps, and are highly inflammatory.


Google is full of nonsense, so I figured it would be more efficient to come here where folks have likely looked at this info before. Thanks for the response, I wasn’t sure if that video was the best comprehensive option.


Dr. Jeff Gerber and Ivon Cummins have a book out that has great information on this topic. It is available in Kindle form as well as hardback.

This doctor is now just doing research, Dr. Cate Shanahan:

She has a couple of books out and a lot of interviews on various health oriented podcasts. She is the reason I tossed out my veggie oils.


Do you have any other information about this inflammatory response?

Check out Tucker Goodrich’s work, studying vegetable oils is pretty much his obsession.


Dr Shanahan’s book Deep Nutrition has quite a good chapter on this. The entire book is well worth reading.
