The major problem with most of these oils is that they are too high in omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Excessive amounts of Omega-6 can lead to increased inflammation of the body and may lead to disease. They may also be high in trans fats. Data from observational studies suggest that consumption of these oils is strongly associated with acts of violence and homicides. Many nutrition professionals still treat these oils as healthy foods and suggest we use vegetable oil that is not so easy to replace saturated fat, “heart health”.
This is an example where blindly following mainstream recommendations can lead to harmful effects on health.
Prior to processing, skimmed milk has a very unpleasant blue color, chalky taste, and watery texture, unlike natural milk. So, in order to whiten, thicken, and make it taste a bit more normal, milk powder solids are usually mixed with milk. You will find skim milk in most grocery stores is a mass-produced product from animals in intensive animal feeding operations, or factory farms, where cattle are kept in confinement and fed a diet that is totally unsuitable for their species . Real milk really makes a good body. It has many valuable nutrients. In addition to important minerals such as calcium, milk provides vitamin D, A, E and K. Well, skim milk is virtually free of vitamin K, as it concentrates on milk fat.So, even if you get a little bit of nutrients from drinking fat-free milk, you can not absorb them into your body,unless,you pair your glass of skim milk with a good stack of butter to smear on bread or something!
