We'd do much better if we'd stop teaching people to use processed oils like canola, soy, vegetable and corn oils that undo what we are supposed to do which is health reform and not health deform. In my experience I've seen our conscientious people suffer from strokes and heart attacks needlessly and all they'd have to do is stop using poison oils. Of course animal fats should be out of the question. Avoid them. Although coconut oil seems to have health benefits when it isn't hydrogenated.
We are warned in God's word about fats.
It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, in all your dwelling places, that you eat neither fat nor blood.” Lev. 3:17
The following website points out, In fact, this substance causes a cell-by-cell failure of the human body by destroying the porosity and flexibility of healthy cell membranes. It's like tearing your body down from the inside out.
What ingredient am I talking about? Hydrogenated oils, of course. For decades, food companies (and even our own government regulators) have lied to us about hydrogenated oils, telling us this disease-causing substance was not merely safe, but actually better for your health than other sources of fat like butter. But today, we know this was nothing more than a global deception, a hijacking of science by the food manufacturers in a blatant attempt to get people to buy their high-profit products like margarine, shortening and snack crackers.
Directly promotes heart disease
Promotes cancers: breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer
Results in low birth weight infants
Raises LDL (bad) cholesterol and lower HDL (good) cholesterol
Raises blood sugar levels and promotes weight gain
Interferes with the absorption of essential fatty acids and DHA
But it isn't just the hydrogenated oils in my opinion it's almost any polyunsaturated oil as is mentioned above.
Nevertheless, some researchers embraced the “lipid hypothesis” of heart disease, which argued that cholesterol in the blood causes atherosclerosis and that polyunsaturated fats reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood. This theory allowed the seed oil industry and its academic supporters to promote polyunsaturated vegetable oils as having drug-like therapeutic properties. “The idea of treating seed oils as drug-like substances, to be taken in large amounts, appealed to the food oil industry,” says Peat.
Of all the poisons in the food supply, trans fats are perhaps the most frequently overlooked. They’re hidden in all sorts of foods, from crackers and baked goods to breakfast cereals. And thanks to intentionally deceptive FDA-approved labeling laws, food products that contain sizable amounts of trans fatty acids can still declare “trans fats free” right on their labels (this clever trick involves reducing serving sizes until the trans fat level drops to 0.5 grams per serving, at which point the FDA says companies can just “round down” to zero).
I like to use sea salt and coconut oil myself. Webmaster.
Trans fats make the coronary arteries more rigid and contribute to the formation of blood clots, which can lead to heart attack or stroke. Trans fats also reduce HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels and increase LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. According to a study by Dr. Walter Willett, chairman of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, approximately 30,000 premature heart disease deaths each year can be attributed to the consumption of trans fats.

Now if that weren't enough even what's been thought of good oils are bad. Better leave off free oils of any kind. Looks like inspiration was right again.
What’s wrong with vegetable oils? The main problem is that polyunsaturated oils contain long-chain fatty acids, which are extremely fragile and unstable. “The unsaturated oils in some cooked foods become rancid in just a few hours even when refrigerated,” says Peat, “and that’s responsible for the stale taste of leftover foods. Eating slightly stale food with polyunsaturated oils isn’t more harmful than eating the same oils when fresh, since the oils will oxidize at a much higher rate once they are in the body. As soon as a polyunsaturated vegetable oil enters the body, it is exposed to temperatures high enough to cause its toxic decomposition, especially when combined with a continuous supply of oxygen and catalysts such as iron.”
In 1996, the Japanese announced a study wherein a special canola oil diet had actually killed laboratory animals. Reacting to this unpublished, but verified and startling information, a duplicate study was conducted by Canadian scientists using piglets and a canola oil based milk replacer diet.
In this second study published in Nutrition Research, 1997, v17, the researchers verified that canola oil somehow depleted the piglets of vitamin E to a dangerously low level.
In the abstract of the study, the Canadian researchers made the following remarkable statement: It is known that ingestion of oils containing polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) of the n–3 and n–6 series results in a high degree of unsaturation in membrane phospholipids, which in turn may increase lipid peroxidation, cholesterol oxidation, free radical accumulation and membrane damage. All very bad attributes.
That statement is remarkable because PUFA is considered essential to a healthy diet. Yet none of the above listed results of eating it may be considered healthy. So now we have something seemingly brand new to the dietary health arena.

Vegans eat no animal products, while vegetarians don't eat animals, but may eat products that come from them (such as dairy and eggs). ... Although all vegans tend to follow the same set of clear cut guidelines – eat nothing that came from an animal – there are a few different types of vegetarian diets. Feb 7, 2017

FDA eyes ban on trans fats due to heart disease risk
The Food and Drug Administration has announced plans to have so-called "partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs)," which are the main
source of artificial trans fats
in processed foods, to be classified as food additives. That means they
won't be allowed to be used in food without authorization of the FDA,
which may effectively ban the substances.
FDA commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg told reporters Wednesday that
the action is being considered because PHOs are "not generally
recognized as safe for use in food."

The agency will allow 60 days for comments from the public and food
manufacturers, asking the latter how long it might take to reformulate
current products should the determination be finalized.
The agency pointed out some companies have voluntarily been scaling
back the amount of trans fat in foods. But it wants more to be done - an
additional 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths from heart disease
each year could be prevented by reducing trans fats, according to the
"These are significant numbers," said Hamburg.
What about in the Bible and not eating certain animals being unclean or that you shouldn't eat? Was it just given for the Jews or is there something deeper than that and has to do with health and sanitation?
When switching to a vegan diet you may wonder, am I going to live longer or is it just going to seem longer. Funny, but I can assure you it will be a more productive life without the use of bad oils. So whether motivated by the fear of dying or joy of living, you need to consider all the options.
