We have a great range, from coconut to olive, vegetable to canola, avocado to rapeseed oil, in the market. From time to time, our companies bring us so many brands with tempting advertisements and promises of good health. But there’s a lot of conflicting data regarding the perfect oil. Olive oil appears to be the best but it is expensive and not suitable for frying as we are accustomed to. Why choose a safe edible oil?
Studies have found that consuming too much saturated fat ( present in our edible oils) – more than 20g for women and 30g for men per day, makes the liver produce cholesterol in our bodies that increases the risk of heart disease. Millions are suffering from coronary arteries, which is crippling our society. Do not use of too much of Oil . I repeat, do not use too much Oil. It is dangerous. Not only deep frying but reheating of oil should be completely abandoned as it makes oil carcinogenic.
Here comes a caveat , avoid fried things from the market as they go on reheating same oil again and again. Now how to satisfy our naughty taste buds when I suggest you no frying at all. Let us marinate our cooking items by adding spices grind at home, thus making them super-duper full of antioxidants. Boil it. Put a little olive oil at the end. Or else, do little frying with minimum possible oil to begin with and finally stop frying at all . I am sure our taste buds will enjoy and our coronaries will dance.Initially we may not like it, but it will become our habit and save us from atherosclerosis , the hardening of blood vessels leading to strokes and heart attacks – huge expenditure and a crippled life.Let us switch to the Mediterranean diet and fight atherosclerosis like they are doing in a very simple manner.If we start now, our next generation will have no problems, and there will be decline in atherosclerosis in our society which is steeping at a alarming rate now.
