    How bad are the crappy oils?

    Shop Now
    Yesterday I at a bunch of tootsie rolls. Not primal, I know, but I'm not super fussy about small cheats.

    I woke up last night with swelling and stiffness in my hands and knees. (I have rheumatoid arthritis which is dramatically improved with primal eating). I was trying to figure out what I could have done to cause a flare and then remembered the tootsie rolls. I looked up the ingredients and they are made of partially hydrogenated soybean oil with some sugar and flavorings! Yikes!

    I ate about 5 of them. Not the tiny ones, the middle sized ones.

    Is it possible that much soybean oil could cause inflammation? Or is it just a co-incidence? If it is the oils, I need to be more strict about eating places that cook in crappy oils.

    Thanks!!

    Yeah, it does for me, too. Just two or three evil cookies can hurt my hip, knees and hands and cause boils to erupt on my face and back. Takes up to a week to recover, but usually most is gone by day three or four.

    Dandelion tea will fight it like a boss.

    oh man, of all the neolithic no-no's, the crap oils are the worst. and the hydrogenated crap oils are the worst of the worst. i'd rather eat wheat sandwiches with sugar syrup.

    This is how "healthy" canola oil is made:

    This is without hydrogenation. Nuff said.

    Does anyone have an idea of the mechanism by which these fats can trigger inflammation so quickly?

    The unsaturated bonds make them burn far less cleanly than saturated fats.

    I don't think it's just the oils, if I eat sugar, I feel my arthritis almost immediately from the inflammation caused by sugar. The combination of the sugar and the oils would be deadly in terms of inflammation.

    So has the byproduct of the "less clean" burning been identified?
