  1. This is a very good talk on how seed oils became to be and why they are a health catastrophe. A horrifying tale of greed mixed with ego combined with terrible science.

    • Palm Oil May not be a sin on it’s own but….. in Indonesia it’s wiped out 90% of the valuable forest, and there was a lot of it. Along with the animals and birds in it. This is the same in India. Take a look at the hundred or more chemicals now that palm oil is added to. Please.

    • I used to live in Malaysia. I am quite familiar with palm oil plantations. Palm oil is a fruit oil. Palm kernel oil is a seed oil. They are not the same. Palm oil is like olive oil, the fruit is crushed. The huge pods smell horrible. The plantations were full of rats eating the fruit, and cobras from India to control the rats.

  2. That was a great talk on the history and chemistry of seed oils and how they are not appropriate in the human diet. Thank you Dr Max πŸ‘

  3. Handle seed oil in its place.
    Eat walnuts. Contains seed oil, because that’s a seed of a walnut tree. But don’t try to get the oil out of that seed and cook/fry with it.
    Just eat walnuts.
    Walnuts are great fasting foods at he end of winter. Fast period of the year. Promotes autophagy.
    That’s why here in Europe all the properties in willages have (had) walnut trees. All of them. People ate walnuts in wintertime, every year.
    (sry ’bout my bad English)

  4. 2:30 That was AHA moments – that we were so high on the food chain, and that our intestines are so different.

  5. I didn’t understand if even eating large quantities of seeds is bad (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc.).

  6. Great lecture. Perhaps repeat the questions audience ask or give them a microphone. I see the subtitles . Not all viewers have English as first language and this message is so important.

  7. Good on ya doc, good talk. I’ll be watching this agian. Animal fats where possible. No carbs and absolutely no sugars. What people never seem to realize is that vegetables are made of sugars.

  8. Unfortunately I see see big crowds saying “Woaah!” when the presenter says “It’s Lard!”. It’s deep embedded in people’s brains that saturated fat is bad.
