Instead of focusing on fats, Bowden suggested avoiding junk food. “All these candies, cookies and sodas cause inflammation. Inflammation causes disease. It is that simple. We have to get rid of all these chemicals and start eating real food.” He suggested wild salmon and other omega-3-rich foods as they are anti-inflammatory.

Your mom told you to limit your butter and egg consumption based on 1950s and 1960s research that is now considered outdated and flawed. Healthy saturated fats, such as those found in avocados, nuts and Malaysian sustainable palm oil can be enjoyed in moderation.
Non-GMO Malaysian sustainable palm oil has a balanced fatty acid content. The natural oil consists of approximately 50 percent unsaturated fat and 50 percent saturated fat. “I use Malaysian palm oil all the time. It is loaded with tocotrienols and it stands up to heat. It also won’t cause inflammation like the other vegetable oils […]
The latest research on saturated fat surprised many people. “We were told to avoid saturated fats at all costs: ‘It is terrible for us. It causes heart disease’,” said Bowden. “And now we’ve been told that it is not true at all.” Two major studies have showed that there is no correlation between saturated fat […]
The largest supplier of sustainable palm oil to the United States takes a different approach to palm oil cultivation. “Malaysia has one of the most modern, enlightened environmental policies in the world. Literally 50 percent of their forests are protected forever.”
“But the oils that we’re cooking with – these corn oils – these are processed, horrible oils that contribute to inflammation. We need to redeem the reputation of good healthy fats like eggs and butter. Inflammation is a culprit in every major degenerative disease. Every single one.”
“Every country is different. Malaysia, for example, is one of the good guys. It produces sustainable palm oil. More than 50 percent of Malaysia’s forests are protected forever. Most of the oil palms are grown on old rubber plantations. It’s not newly cleared land. A lot of people get their geography mixed up. They think […]
“There have been two major studies in the last four years that have shown that saturated fat has no relationship to heart disease. We have just been sold a crock of you know what,” said Bowden. “And what we’ve been doing is replacing these normal, healthy fats from real whole foods such as eggs, nuts, […]
We need to switch to things like olive oil, coconut oil — which is a saturated fat but very healthy for you — and my favorite these days is Malaysian palm oil. It’s red because of all the antioxidants.
The Malaysian palm oil industry cares about its environment. It invests in wildlife conservation and the country has pledged to set aside at least 50 percent of her total land to forest cover. This lush country is one of the largest carbon sinks in the world.
