You've put some words in my mouth, and I disagree with some of your other points.
No argument here: varied diets with low to moderate intake of cholesterol, fats, and refined sugars are the way to go.
Cholesterol is important because it's what the hormones are made out of. There's a nice graphic on the "Progestogen" wikipedia page... Refined sugar isn't nearly as bad as starch. HFCS is undesirable because it's made from corn, and there can be significant contaminates.
Raw food diets are for idiots that want to spend money following trends. But eating uncooked meat is not good for you either.
I used to eat a lot of raw meat, and it never caused me any trouble, but neither did I notice much of a benefit. Agree that many ppl spend a lot of money on the "raw" trend...
To be fair; people that want to lose weight need to eat fewer calories than they burn. It doesn't matter if they eat cardboard or drink nothing but Mountain Dew. To lose weight healthfully is a bit more complicated.
Disagree. People can put on weight with 800 calories/day if they have poor thyroid function, for example. The thyroid gland does not respond favorably to the polyunsaturated oils.
Palm oil increases the risk of esophageal cancer. Asia has proven an wealth of information about how bad for us processed food is and palm oil is no exception; rates of esophageal cancer went from negligible to as-problematic-as-the-West as soon as it was introduced.
Palm oil comes from Asia and Africa, so it was never "introduced". Basically: Citation Required.
(For those that don't know, anything labeled "vegetable oil" probably contains palm oil.)
In the United States, Vegetable oil is always made from corn, soy, rapeseed, safflower, or a blend.
Polyunsaturated oils are not even remotely toxic in moderation.
Says who? I gave a link to "lipid peroxidation", which CANNOT happen when the fat is Saturated.
They are readily oxidized fats, making them a preferred energy source for bacteria in the gut.
IF you're an ruminant that has four stomachs, then your digestive system has time and space to biohydrogenate those nasty oils. If you're a single-stomach'd animal, your body fat composition generally reflects the type of fats in your diet
In return for eating these fats, they secrete all sorts of beneficial metabolites.
Never heard of this. Link?
