I think it evolved into a pretty interesting discussion on the seed oil topic. Perhaps I’m biased.
The main parts of the video are:
- I discuss the difference in philosophy between seed oil supporters (such as Gil) and detractors (such as myself)
- I point out some specific flaws in a few of the papers he cites
- I do a deep dive on a VERY interesting paper connecting the genetics of the delta 6 desaturase (D6D) enzyme with dietary intake of linoleic acid. I’ve talked about D6D in Accumulating Linoleic Acid Prevents Diabetes.
- In the final part I discuss the realities of fryer oil. How often do restaurants change the oil? What hapeens to it over time? What are the biological effects?
I poke some light hearted fun at Gil, I hope he’s not too offended. I don’t think he’s a bad guy, we just disagree.
I think this video is a good one, buckle up!
