Is vegetable oil bad for your health?

The question of whether vegetable oil is harmful to health has become crucial due to the 700% increase in chronic inflammatory diseases since 1935.

Chronic inflammatory diseases:

6 in 10 Americans suffer from chronic inflammatory diseases, with heart disease being the leading cause of death globally. Despite reducing smoking, drinking, and exercising.

Heart Diseases:

Evidence suggests that linoleic acid, an omega-6 polyunsaturated fat, can cause oxidative stress, oxidized LDL, inflammation, and atherosclerosis, particularly when consumed in vegetable oils, a major dietary contributor to cardiovascular disease.

Fatty Liver:

Most processed vegetable oil, often found on food labels, contributes to the development of fatty liver and is often a cheap and unpleasant oil like soybean, cottonseed, corn, canola, safflower, or sunflower seed oil.

Vegetable oil can cause death.

The “Sydney Diet-Heart Study” found that participants who consumed more vegetable oil had a 62% higher death rate compared to those who consumed less oil.

Vegetable oil can cause cancer.

Vegetable and seed oils have been linked to oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, and genetic damage, which are also key factors promoting cancer. Additionally, increasing the intake of corn oil, but not saturated fats, promoted prostate cancer. A low-fat diet showed no benefits in reducing cancer risk compared to a diet high in saturated fats.

Depression and Cognitive Disorders:

A study found that individuals with major depressive disorders had higher omega-6:n-3 ratios and inflammatory markers than those without. Consuming soybean oil led to weight gain, gene dysregulation, and higher rates of neurological disorders like autism, Alzheimer’s, anxiety, and depression. It also reduced levels of oxytocin, the hormone responsible for loving bonds. The study suggests reducing soybean oil consumption to reduce mental health resources and address social problems.

Bottom Line:

Vegetable oil is harmful due to its inflammation and disruption of hormone signaling, increasing the risk of


 Heart disease,


Neurodegenerative disorders,

Impaired fertility,

Fatty liver


Despite numerous factors contributing to inflammatory diseases, morbid obesity and heavy smoking are the most deadly lifestyle choices, with vegetable oil consumption being the most deadly. The conclusion is supported by randomized control trials, historical evidence, and large-scale observational studies.
