Cooking With Lard Or Butter Healthier Than Vegetable Oil

A team of scientists revealed that vegetable oil releases toxic chemicals that are linked to cancer and brain degeneration.

When heated, vegetable oils such as corn, sunflower, palm and soya bean oils release chemicals called aldehydes that have been linked to various cancers and neurogenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.

Martin Grootveld from DeMontfort University, said, "A meal fried in vegetable oil such as fish and chips contains 100 to 200 times more aldehydes than the daily limit set by the World Health Organization (WHO)."

Cooking using lard, butter and olive oil was found to produce much lower levels of aldehydes - with coconut oil coming out as healthiest.

John Stein, emeritus professor of neuroscience at Oxford University, said "If you eat too much corn oil or sunflower oil, the brain is absorbing too much omega 6, and that effectively forces out omega 3."
