Refined oils (and especially vegetable and seed oils) have become a big part of the Western diet, and they’re generating a lot of controversy these days. Especially on social media, many people are saying that these oils are one of the driving factors in the large increase in various diseases like cancer, diabetes, and obesity. Do we need to eliminate refined oils from our diet altogether? If we don’t, are we imperiling our health and dramatically increasing our risk of various types of disease and dysfunction? 

This podcast is my evidence-based answer to those types of claims and to the questions that more and more people are asking me these days about these oils.
