Not all saturated fats are bad and not all unsaturated fats are necessarily good. Appearing on Des Moines NBC affiliate WHO TV, Nutrition Myth Buster Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., CNS, gave viewers pointers on how to be smart about incorporating cooking oils into their diets. Nestled in America’s heartland, Iowa is the U.S. producer of corn and soybeans. Bowden cautioned them not to believe the myths about some types of oils.  “Malaysian palm oil, for example, has carotenoids and tocotrienols, and is sustainably farmed,” he said, adding: “It has been wrongly demonized. When I see No Palm Oil on a label, my head wants to explode!” He told host Megan Reuther, “Good fats do not contribute to inflammation, which is at the heart of every chronic disease.”
