Many lies were told to us about oils from the tropical regions e.g. coconut oil and palm oil in the 1980s.

Health professionals decided to focus solely on the saturated fats in these oils and only promoted the stigma; “saturated fats increase the chances of heart diseases.”

The healthy fats; mono- and poly unsaturated fats also contained in these oils were ignored. Olive oil thus gained a lot of grounds in many kitchens worldwide.

Most Africans leading a healthy lifestyle still believe these lies and have partially or completely eradicated palm oil from their diets.

Plant oils in moderate amounts e.g. palm oil, coconut oil, olive oil, cotton seed oil, soya bean oil, corn oil etc. are good for you. The real danger is in processed fats, animal fats and trans fats. Please follow the link below to watch the youtube video.
