Please join me in welcoming Dr. Chris Knobbe! Dr. Knobbe is an ophthalmologist who has been working on seed oil research for the past 13 years. His research investigates industrial seed oils and their connection to obesity, diabetes, and almost all chronic diseases that plague us today.

Sugar consumption levels did not change much between 1922 and 1987; however, obesity increased by 600%! During this timeframe, vegetable oil consumption went from 78 calories per person per day to 497 calories, respectively! The average American gets around ⅓ of their calories from seed oils.

How do seed oils contribute to diabetes? Simply put, seed oils drive mitochondrial dysfunction, inhibiting the body's ability to burn fuel properly.

Seed oils are rich in omega-6 fatty acids that accumulate in our body fat, cell membranes, and mitochondrial membranes. These polyunsaturated fats cause oxidation and inflammation in the body. They are also nutrient deficient. When you consume foods that lack nutrients like seed oils or sugar, your body has to pull from nutrient reserves, creating deficiencies.

Cottonseed oil was the first seed oil introduced into the food supply. It was initially manufactured as machine oil and lamp oil. It was also used as fertilizer and cattle feed. The goal was to make money and outsell butter and lard, and the manufacturers were very successful. By 2010, the average American consumed 80 grams of seed oils daily.

One of the easiest ways to eliminate seed oils from your diet is to stop purchasing food with a label! Focus on whole foods like meat, eggs, dairy, and produce, and avoid processed foods.

  1. Seed oils are unfortunately in so many foods. Have to prepare everything ourselves to the on the safe side 😮

    • I was looking on the ingredients label of all the processed food in my house and virtually all have seed oils….even the foods at restaurants cook their food in seed oils 😢

    • I’m in my second year of trying but I did cheat with pizza a few times. I cut out all sugar it was in my tomato sauce snacks and I buy no salt butter, tuna etc I try to only buy real food. If I want pizza I make sauce and mozz in top of something

  2. Ultra Processed (anything) Seed oils rightfully own the “worst thing ever” award. They should be illegal

  3. I only consume grass fed butter, coconut oil, avacado oil and olive oil…so enlightening thanks for this! Lets share the news!

    • But I am confused, olive, coconut, and avocado oils are all made from the seeds of that food? Thus they are also seed oils?

    • Its something like, coconut and olive oil is made from the flesh part, not seed, and they are saturated, not like unsaturated seed oils. Ben Bikman talks about this. They dont oxidize quickly like seed oils.

    • ​@iriscarlisle7688 you need to understand the difference between virgin/extra virgin/ coldpressed oils vs the “seed oils”

  4. Here in Iraq, I often hear people with diabetes upon returning from visiting their doctors saying they have to cut the “oils”. When I protest saying that oils have nothing to do with diabetes, they say it was the doctors advice. The doctors advice, however, seems like a blanket statement vilifying all fats which means it is not applicable. Not once I could hear a doctor making the distinction between seed oils and other edible fats.

    • I think it’s a case the world over that Medical Doctors see SO MANY people with ill-health they are simply tired of repeating the same guidance every day.

    • @@SpamMouse At least they could say: get rid of the seed oils instead of saying get rid of fats. But, nah! They have to vilify saturated fat that has been with humanity from the beginning.

    • Olive oil is being adulterated, Avocado oil is too costly and not available.. Is cold-pressed Mustard or Sesame oil ok to consume? At least it contains some nutrients compared to the refined version…

    • @@user-zy7vv7bm3w well, put it this way, avocado sesame and mustard are not good oil, because they don’t come from Israel

  5. Thank you Dr. Berg and Dr. Knobbe! So enlightening. Cutting out seed oils has been huge for my health! So grateful for this channel.

  6. At 25:45, Ben Bikman PhD has his own similar saying – “If it comes in a box or a bag or has a barcode, its no good for you.” He also advises, if you must food shop in a grocery store, stick to the outer perimeter and stay out of the interior aisles because those are where all the highly processed foods are found. The outer walls is typically the less-processed items such as meats, vegetables, fruits and dairy.

    • Correctly said. I went to the grocery store and read labels, and realized that manufacturers are making us sick with synthetic ingredients. We have to practice the basics: plant and cook our food.

    • Every thing that’s not packaged like vegetables they spray preservatives poison on them and with the butcher and fish market they do the same thing so they can regain their colour. Go fishing grow your own vegetables

  7. I’m a Chef, I never eat out as I know everything has vegetable oil added. It’s in everything!! Eat at home is best anyway!

    • I couldn’t start a new thread but I did find that app on the Play store it’s called seed oil scout

    • Tell me about it. I’m allergic to soy, which is vegetable oil.
      It is in everything chewing gum waffles pancake. Mix any cookie. Any piece of bread in the store even has soy bean oil or vegetable oil same difference I stripped the fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, and occasional fish salmon and beef.

    • I found an app that does scout out seed oil restaurants is actually called seed oil scout which I found in my Play store.
      They do charge a couple bucks a month for the service

  8. I’ve given up almost everything over a year and a half ago. Now if any of these ingredients are hidden in something I’ve consumed I immediately know it and sick the next day.

    • I replaced seed oils with avocado oil about 1 year ago, and I feel that I feel less inflammation in my body. Other than AO I use EVO and butter for my own cooking. I am also restricting my diet of processed food especially snacks. I may eat at a restaurant only once a week.

  9. I went on vacation last week and ate too many things i wasn’t used to eating the last 2 yrs, now my body is so sore and inflamed ( i have fibro) its a good wake up call to get back at it

    • Oh I feel your pain. Anytime I eat anything with sugar in it or carbs, I can barely walk the next few days. 😊

    • Same here, 2 nights ago I hung out with friends I haven’t seen in a long time and are out at a restaurant….broke my 4 weeks of intermittent fasting of low carbs and avoiding seed oil, next morning I felt like crap 😅

  10. Seed oils need to be removed from the processed food supply. Replace it with beef/goat/bison tallow, pork lard, chicken schmaltz, duck fat, etc. Animal fats only.

  11. My grandmother lived to be 92 y.o. and she used Lard for everything 😌… Died of natural causes.

  12. Thank you gentlemen!! We need more open discussions like this worldwide!! Barbara O’Neill deserves recognition as well!! God bless!!

  13. I am so grateful for Dr Berg for his sound advice and making us aware of what is good or bad with us. Nobody is as clear and concise as he is.

  14. Excellent! An acquaintance complained to me recently about pain in his knees. He wore elastic bandages to alleviate it but it would often flair up. I explained to him about seed oils and he agreed to remove them from his diet (at least from food he prepared at home). Sure enough, two weeks later he had no need for the elastic bandages.

  15. Our food supply regulatory regime is corrupt. Companies and industries have been allowed to provide our society foods with little to no nutritional value in order to maximize profits over a healthy society.

    • The more people that are unhealthy and stoopid for their health is what the government wants,so they have profits from this victims.hospitals and pharmaceuticals is held by the government.without this victims,they willl lose alot of $$$ and the country will also go down.sad to say but this is a food chain for the country.they fed the country to survive.if all people are healthy and wise for their health,alot of businesses will be bankrupt.
