Why is everyone so down on vegetable oil? I thought it was supposed to be good for you!

Vegetable oil is not good for you. It is highly processed, and the omega-6 fatty acids in it are pro-inflammatory. We should strive for an omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 1 to 1, but most Americans have a ratio of 16 to 1 up to 25 to 1. There are some exceptions such as organically pressed sesame oil or high oleic oils, but generally vegetable oil is bad for us.
Transcript: "He said the question is why is everybody so down on vegetable oil? I thought it was supposed to be good for you. We all thought it was supposed to be good for us. We were not told the truth about that. It's not good for us at all. In fact, there are many people in my field in my neck of the woods and functional medicine and functional nutrition. Who if you ask them. What are the two most destructive ingredients in the American diet? Unquestionably. They would say, sugar and vegetable oil. So remember Vegetable came about at a time in history in American history. When two things were happening, one is saturated. Fat was demonized. Everybody thought saturated, fat caused heart disease. Many people still think that it's not true and they were looking for substitutes for saturated fat. And the second thing that happened was big food was going, we got all this runoff from our to stuff. We're selling for Wheaties and corn flakes and I wonder if we can sell it. Yes, we can. It's a great substitute for this thing. Everybody is afraid of now in one of my books. I think it's a great color storm. If we tell the story, the Minnesota, heart experiment in, which they actually tested the ingredient in vegetable oil against saturated fat, and found that risk factors went up even more. When the people ate the unsaturated fat. This isn't a blanket condemnation of all unsaturated fat, Omega, threes or an unsaturated fat. The problem with vegetable oil is twofold. Number one. Most of it is the most processed or You can imagine they deodorize it. They D gummit. They there's a so many processes that goes to the by the time it gets on the Shelf. There is absolutely nothing of any value in it. The second problem with it is that the omega-6 which is the main fat that's in vegetable oil is actually pro-inflammatory. Now, you need some omega-6 in your diet. You would like your omega-6 in your remote Omega-3 ratio to be about 1 to 1, that'd be ideal. Ours is 16 to 1 up to 25 to 1 in favor of the pro inflammatory omega-6s and we get it from corn oil, safflower oil, soybean oil, sunflower oil. These are just really not good oils for us. There are occasional exceptions. I mean, organically press sesame oil High oleic oils. Yes, they are not as bad but Basically live on omega-6 on the stuff that's in vegetable oil. They put it in every food product that you can buy in the store anything that comes packages, got partially hydrogenated or even if it's not partially hydrogenated corn, oil, sesame oil, sunflower oil, the cheapest the most processed the most pro-inflammatory oils, and I remember my great nutrition Mentor who started me in the field. Robert Cray on the lake barbecue man once said jokingly that if he wanted."
