Is It Bad For You?! Cooking Oil (Nasty Seed Oils?!)

Welcome back to Chat Sh*t Get Fit - Is It Bad For You? This week we explore the world of cooking oils. We answer the big questions such as "is coconut oil even good for you?", "Is canola as bad as the media sometimes portrays?" and basically come to a conclusion about the various types of cooking oils and their respective levels of fat types - so saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat. 

We are not alone this week, however! We are joined by a familiar voice in Jaebien Rosario or as he's known on Instagram "sciencebyjae" previously MrCogfit. He is literally walking data and he has come equipped with a mammoth load of scientific literature to help us come to a conclusion as to if cooking oils are bad for you (especially PUFAs, omega 6 and canola oil!)
