What's worse vegetable oils or grains?

Which do you think is worse for human health? I personally think that those highly refined vegetable and seed oils are just as bad if not much worse than grains. It's only been used for a couple of decades whereas grains have been eatan for many centuries.

Zest an orange, add a little bit of vodka and cover in an air tight container. Every day for four days shake the container. At the end of four days, open the container and let it sit until the alcohol evaporates.

I get an immediate strong negative reaction from sunflower oil unfortunately, so for me it is indeed a direct link that keeps me away from vegetable oils (except olive). Often I can eat bread without much reaction at all, just a vague sluggish feeling, or some guilt!

Interesting, I have only seen peel oils used in skin care preparations. Imagination now running wild with taste sensation ideas involving orange peel oil..... I wonder if Mr Google can tell me where to buy some in Australia...

There are dozen of peel oils. I use them as finishing oils all the time. Orange peel is my favorite!

I think grains get more attention because many get a fairly immediate negative effect (bloating, gas, etc) where as a lot of the negative impact from seed oils is likely more long-term and/or harder to directly link to seed oil consumption.

too aggregate to answer. Some grains are worse than some oils. Some oils are worse than some grains.

    Is canola oil worse that wheat?
    Is palm oil worse than barley?
    Is peel oil worse than rice?
    Is Quinoa worse than peanut oil?

Obviously several thousand combinations can be proposed and they won't all have the same answer

Modern vegetable oils. I think it's possible to prepare grains (other than modern hybrid wheat) properly and eat them in small amounts without harming health, although even properly prepared grains probably shouldn't be a large part of the diet for most people.

I would generally agree with you that I think vegetable oils are much worse, but I suppose this might depend on the type. I eat some rice and use virgin sesame oil from time to time, but I stay far away from whole wheat and soybean oil.

Part of me feels like that's the same as asking which is beter, getting punched in the crotch or getting kicked in the crotch.

Vegetable oils are more insidious than wheat/grains.

I would say - definitely oils. Why?

  1. The equipment to make vegetable oils did not appear till later in our industrial history.

  2. You can sprout and ferment grains.

  3. Oil is not wholesome. Fiber and some nutrients are removed.

  4. Most oils are extracted with some degree of heat (unless they are cold-pressed or made by hand).

  5. Grains are found in nature. Oils are made.
