What are the health effects of using vegetable oils? In general, we consider vegetable oils to be healthier than fats derived from animals. This is largely thanks to the efforts of commercial vegetable oil producers to link the modern problems of cancer and heart disease with animal fat (especially saturated fat) consumption. The truth is somewhat different. Pure vegetable oils, such as olive oil, sunflower oil, sesame oil, soybean oil, peanut oil, palm and coconut oil have been in use for thousand of years, and their benefits as part of a balanced diet are well understood. In order to derive maximum benefits from oil, it is beneficial to consume a mix of oils in order to maintain a balance between the three fatty acids. For instance, blends of rice bran and sunflower oils are the best buys and are suitable for frying. Sesame and Coconut add great flavor.
