    Man O Man...

    So I was explaining good and bad oils to a person at work today. This person would fall into the CW category. I get this link emailed to me...

    Good fats vs. bad fats | Fox News

    Dude. I don't even know where to begin...

    I just replied with... "Here is a real guide to oils.."

    The real guide

    I love how the "Con" for coconut oil is: "Has a strong taste." Ummmm...?

    Goes right along with the "Hard to find in stores" con for lard.

    every single thing about that article pisses me off, but perhaps nothing pisses me off so much as the grouping of saturated fat with trans fat, as if they're the same.

    Don't instantly judge (as the people replying to you have). To your coworker you basically said "what you read was false, but here, read what I did because it's true." Don't give up on him just yet.

    So, humans lived what, a million years before the invention of 'heart healthy' vegetable oils? And yet didn't keel over at a young age with heart disease from eating all that saturated animal fat. Imagine that. Like I said, some people can't think for themselves.

    Meh, I've come around to the idea that some people just can't be helped. I have been told that you can plant a seed, but it will grow in its own time (perhaps in my kids movie KungFu Panda?). Sorry to get all zen on you, but I think its an apt way to take these sort of things. And yes, I get all of my life guiding philosophies from cartoons, as should we all.

    I don't even bother with oils any more. I use coconut oil for meat, butter for vegetables, and plain lemon juice for salad.

    Yes, some people need to be guided...so guide away. Don't expect someone to change their view just because the article you show them says something different than the article they read. Most people just read something and pass it along. Tell them the site to come to, tell them the books to read, tell them what you've learned in your research.
