Thank you for a great and informative mag. Your article on ‘fats and oils’ in the April 2017 issue was excellent! This is the first time that I read that seed oils are actually ‘trash’.
I have been using hemp seed oil as it is claimed to have many health benefits (Google it!). Since your article, I have stopped using it. Should I regard hemp seed oil also as ‘trash’? E.V.R.

Yes, my personal opinion and that of all purists who understand the difference between all the seed and other oils, is yes, it is not good for the body. The problem is: You see, that it completely throws out our ‘balance’ of omega-3 to omega-6 oils which is incredibly serious. An imbalance leads to inflammation, possible tumour growth, and dozens of other problems. So yes, ALL seed oils, no matter where they are from, I feel are detrimental to the human body.
I know that nobody has all the facts! If anyone thinks they do, watch out. But there is much evidence to back the science of the dangers of seed oils.
