Vegetable oils promoted by public health officials, the medical establishment, and many dietitians are associated with increased brain inflammation, atherosclerosis, and neurodegeneration. That includes these omega-6 oils:
• Peanut oil
• Safflower oil
• Sunflower oil
• Canola oil
• Corn oil
• Soybean oil
Foods that contain these oils are often oxidized, which makes them even more harmful to the brain and heart.
Most processed foods contain one or more of these oils. You should only cook with extra virgin olive oil or extra virgin coconut oil.
To increase the brain protective capacity, add turmeric powder to the oil and mix well.
