A new study by the French INSERM research agency confirms that hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated vegetable oils present in industrial processed food double the risk of breast cancer. There is strong correlation between the presence of hydrogenated oils in processed food and the statistical increase in cardiovascular pathologies, inflammatory syndromes and also some cancers.
Hydrogenated oils can affect heart health because they increase “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and lower “good” (HDL) cholesterol. Vegetable oils are chemically extracted from their source, chemically treated, and more chemicals are added to change the smell and taste. They’re packed with unhealthy omega-6 fats and have been proven to alter the structure of our cell membranes.
