Even Olive Oil
Nuts and Olives Themselves the Way to Go
Here’s another message most people don’t want to hear: no oil. We have been sold on olive oil, in particular, as a health food and way to prevent heart disease.
According to Caldwell Esselstyn Jr MD of Cleveland Clinic, olive oil — and ANY oil — increases heart disease, the same way butter does.
Dr. Esselstyn has shown heart disease can be reversed 100 percent of the time, using a plant-based diet. If you want to avoid heart disease and cancer, ditch all oils, which are in any case just highly processed (i.e., junk) food.
Yes, we know there are oils out there that have been minimally processed. But that’s not what most people are buying.
The bottom line: There are plenty of ways to get healthy fats in our diets, and adding processed oil isn’t one of them.
