I’ve long talked about the disastrous health consequences associated with heavy consumption of vegetable and seed oils.
What are common vegetable and seed oils?
Take a look at the majority of the items in your local grocery store and you’ll find them:
Soybean oil, sunflower oil, canola oil, safflower oil, cottonseed oil, peanut oil, and grapeseed oil are found in just about everything.
These oils have excessive amounts of a specific dietary fat known as omega-6 linoleic acid.
To understand why these oils are not ideal for human health, please read this post.
Migraines are one of the most crippling and common secondary conditions (symptoms) modern humans suffer from.
There are many reasons why migraines can develop. Some common causes include structural shifts and abnormalities of the cervical spine (neck) and surrounding tissues, environmental toxins, emotional stress, being sedentary, and poor dietary habits.
Typically, migraines are caused by a combination of all the above.
More specifically, related to dietary habits, the over-consumption of vegetable and seed oils has likely contributed greatly to the increased rate of migraines.
Migraines are often crippling, leaving the migraine sufferer incapacitated and unable to perform the simplest of everyday functions and activities.
Recent research shows that consuming too much omega-6 linoleic acid (found in HIGH amounts in vegetable and seed oils), caused an increase in chemicals that increase migraine pain.
To summarize, when a human consumes excessive amounts of this fat, it causes the production of chemicals that create inflammation and, consequently, makes that human more susceptible to pain of all sorts.
There is much more to discuss regarding how vegetable and seed oils (and consuming too much Omega-6 linoleic) disrupt and pervert normal cellular function and human health. Please see this post for more information.
While these omega-6 linoleic acids are needed in small amounts in our bodies, modern humans are consuming MUCH more than needed, and the consequences of that have been disastrous on our health and wellbeing.
