"The best kinds of oils to cook with are canola oil, which is the oil highest in monounsaturated fat, and olive oil, which runs a close second but adds flavor and other benefits. Just by cooking with these oils, avoiding shortening and margarine, and limiting the total amount of fat you eat, your blood profile will change. Another way is to eat oils that actually lower LDL and triglycerides. These oils are known as Omega 3 fish oils, or essential fatty acids. These oils come from cold-water fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, and halibut."

"If there are no nutrients in the oil, they can stay on the shelf forever. 3. There should be no high temperature processing or hydrogenation of the oils, as these processes destroy the valuable nutrients and create toxins. (Look for expeller or cold pressed oils found mostly at health food stores.) Simple Diet Suggestions and Replacements Suggestion #1: Avoid processed vegetable oils such as canola, soy, cottonseed, corn, etc. Replacement: Use coconut oil, palm oil, and/or olive oil."

"A similar oil is grapeseed oil. Light destroys these essential oils, which is why they are also packed in dark capsules. Sesame oil has the desirable property of being highly unsaturated. It is the eating oil of choice in many ancient cultures. Canola oil is also a good source of some essential fatty acids. The reason oils are better than solid fats is because at normal body temperature they remain as oils and do not turn into sticky lard. For detailed information on the essential fatty acids and their best sources, refer to the book Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill, by Dr. Udo Erasmus."

"These include liberal amounts of omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil, flaxseed oil, and walnut oil, e.g.], omega-9 fatty acid (extra-virgin olive oil), and a more limited intake of omega-6 oils (vegetable and seed oils) and arachidonic acid (animal fat), including the yolk from boiled and poached eggs. Animal Protein Eat four- to six-ounce servings of fresh, unbreaded, unfried, oily, non-allergenic fish two to five times a week (salmon, Alaskan halibut, orange roughy, sardines, Chilean sea bass, trout, and mackerel, e.g.)."

"The oil derivatives were erroneously used while the oil was being refined into a consumer product. This rapeseed oil made it to the tables of tens of thousands of consumers, and "toxic oil syndrome" burst onto the scene. Twenty thousand individuals fell ill with a lupuslike autoimmune disease, and 1,200 people died. Keeping track of the vast array of food additives in use by the food manufacturing industry today and making sure that they don't contain traces of harmful chemicals is a heady job."

"Any clear container where you can see the oil should be avoided. 2. There should be an expiration date on the container. Nutrients have a shelf life. If there are no nutrients in the oil, they can stay on the shelf forever. 3. There should be no high temperature processing or hydrogenation of the oils, as these processes destroy the valuable nutrients and create toxins.

"The purpose of the grapefruit juice is to disguise the taste of the oil. Also, make sure you are tired and ready to sleep. Stir the mixture just before drinking, so that the oil and juice combine. Pinch your nostrils and drink the mixture as quickly as possible (the sooner, the better). Continue to hold your nose and use the remaining grapefruit juice to swish around in your mouth and then swallow to clean out the oil taste. If you keep your nose pinched until the oily feeling in your mouth is gone, the olive oil taste will be negligible. You're ready for bed now."

"Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), found in evening primrose oil, borage seed oil, and blackcurrant oil, helps prevent blood platelets from clumping together, improving the circulation and reducing inflammation. And linoleic acid, which is found in certain light vegetable oils such as corn, soybean, safflower, and sunflower oils, also helps hinder the production of prostaglandins. So to help control inflammation, consider adding green vegetables and one or more of these plant oils to your diet. ?Riboflavin. This vitamin, also called B2, is a part of the triple therapy."

"Continue to hold your nose and use the remaining grapefruit juice to swish around in your mouth and then swallow to clean out the oil taste. If you keep your nose pinched until the oily feeling in your mouth is gone, the olive oil taste will be negligible. You're ready for bed now. Lay on your right side as you go to sleep. It is possible to feel nausea or you might even throw up the grapefruit and oil mixture. If this happens, it is a plus because a significant amount of toxins will be gone from your body quickly. It is just not the most pleasant experience."

"Finely cut leaves lose their aromatic oil content more quickly than whole leaves. The aromatic oils accumulate as the tea leaf is growing and evaporate during and after the harvesting of tea leaves. Conversely, changes during the processing of tea leaves can contribute to the formation of some aromatic oils that remain in the final tea product. About five hundred different aromatic oils have been identified in some types of tea. Vitamins, Minerals, and Amino Acids The nutritional content of tea varies greatly according to the type of tea and the place where it was grown."

"Olive oil is the best of the vegetable oils. It contains 75 percent oleic acid (long-chain monounsaturated fat), 13 percent saturated fat, 10 percent linoleic, and 2 percent linolenic acids (the two essential fatty acids). However, olive oil should not be the only fat consumed. Butter, coconut oil, or palm kernel oil are important because they contain more short-chain fatty acids, which have many health benefits, such as faster energy utilization, antimicrobial properties, and anticancer properties. Also, too much olive oil may generate an imbalance of the essential fatty acids."

"The fresh leaves may be pressed for their oil and then added to olive or other vegetable oils. Preparations of St. John's wort oil will turn red with age and keep for about 2 years. Otherwise, you should dry the plant for future use. GROWING IT INDOORS If you're strapped for outdoor garden space, you can try growing St. John's wort indoors in wide, shallow pots. The soil should include two parts peat, two parts regular garden soil, one part compost or composted manure, and one part sand. Plant and water well; add water when the soil is dry."

"Using the wrong type of cooking oil can have a disastrous effect on our health. The cooking oil used by the majority of Americans not only contains the wrong kind of fatty acid but also is devoid of almost all nutrients. The vegetable oils commonly found in grocery stores have been processed into partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, which results in the removal of almost all of the nutrients from the oil. Also, these processed oils may contain the heavy metal nickel, which is used in the hydrogenation process."

"Coconut oil provides a quick source of energy and stimulates metabolism. This boost in energy not only lifts the spirit but promotes faster healing. The higher the body's metabolism the more efficient the immune system and the quicker the body can heal and repair itself. It's like a carpenter doing some repairs on your house. If he is tired and slow, it will take a long time to do the job, but if he is energetic and anxious to complete the task it will take a fraction of the time."

"Flaxseed oil is another fatty acid whose therapeutic benefits are very similar to those offish oil. In addition, it can lower cholesterol and promote soft-tissue healing. You cannot cook with it; it must be refrigerated; and the recommended dosage is one tablespoon twice a day. Other natural remedies for chronic sinusitis and the other respiratory conditions are peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, and camphorated salve (Tiger Balm). I put a very small amount (one drop) of peppermint oil on my fingertip, then wipe it around the outside of both nostrils."

"COQlO (see Coenzyme QIO) COTTONSEED oil (Gossypium species) Category: Botanical Antitumor Actions Cottonseed oil has been used traditionally as an anticancer agent, but limited human studies indicate that it does not have anticancer activity A Utile anecdotal evidence exists. Other Actions Cottonseed oil has been used traditionally to induce menstrual flow. Toxicity Cottonseed oil can induce a spontaneous abortion with pregnancy. Suggested Use Cottonseed oil is not suggested as an anticancer agent since there is no evidence that it works."

"The flowers make beautiful rich red oil when soaked in olive or almond oil and can be used to transfer the wound-healing gifts of this powerful plant. (See color plate 12.)

"The discovery was patented and the technology used to make the blended fat into a margarine spread, cooking oil, mayonnaise and shortening. It has also been added to fat in popcorn. So it is possible now to go through the day and obtain your fat from many sources of food stuffs, all of which contain this blend, which is a balance between the SFA and PUFA. It performs well—mouth feel, texture, etc. and the spreads are very flavorful—very nice products."

"Rather than totally hydrogenate the liquid unsaturated oil, only partial hydrogenation became the process of choice, and the key product produced by the hydrogenation process retained a double bond. While at first sight this sounds great, the molecule was also twisted around. The good, original fatty acid, the one called cis, became a trans, and it was later discovered that it had a different effect on the body. More and more products were developed that used these vegetable fats in place of fat from animal sources, such as butter, lard from pork or tallow from beef."

- Gene A. Spiller, The Trans Fats Dilemma and Natural Palm Oil (Get the book.)

"What is happening is that every time you use pressure and hydrogen to solidify the oil, all kinds of trans fatty acids are being formed above and below where the double bond is going from the cis to the trans position."

- Gene A. Spiller, The Trans Fats Dilemma and Natural Palm Oil (Get the book.)

"On the other hand, I have told you that some saturated fatty acids are required to make certain food products, since you can't cook everything with liquid oil. So a somewhat harder fat is needed. I've also tried to explain why it's better to have a naturally hard fat, with its fatty acids provided by nature, rather than partially hydrogenated unnatural trans fatty acids that were made as a modified fat. These partially hydrogenated fats don't metabolize very well."

"Reality Bites but Entropy Devours The global oil production peak will change everything about economic life in the United States (and elsewhere) and especially the value of things believed to be assets, including all paper securities and money. The runup to the peak, and the squandering of fantastic amounts of energy, has produced a pervasive entropic "pollution" of the entire economic ecosystem. That ecosystem is to some extent a construct of ideas, consensual agreements, and institutions for enacting and regulating those agreements."

"Because of their chemical composition, genes dissolve in water, whereas the protein fragments and bits of fat from the cell membranes dissolve in oil. To separate the genes from the cell membranes and proteins, Reid added an oily mixture to the solution—chloroform and phenol. She shook it up so that the protein fragments and fats in the mixture of molecules from the lung tissue would dissolve in the oily layer and the fragments of genes would stay in the watery layer. Then she let the mixture settle so that the oily layer floated on top of the water. She poured off the oil."

"This is where, back in 1859, the world's first successful oil well was drilled, but oil has come and gone, right along with the economy: The median income is now $25,000; 16 percent of the town is below the poverty line; and a few years back, about 75 percent of the kindergartners received government assistance for school lunches. Which is to say, this is not a wealthy suburb. In 1999 McCord visited Naperville, came home, and transformed physical education in Titusville almost overnight."
