Oil should be in proper amount in our body, as oil is a from a fat and it helps in generating energy , vitamin absorption. “We need 10 to 15 percent fats in our daily diet to balance out our carbohydrates and proteins but we must moderate them within that limit. Also, we must be sure that the oil which we consumed is healthy for our body and wouldn’t be do any kind of disturbance inside the body. It will be of proper amount and of good quality as suitable for human body.

It should be healthy for human heart. At the same time, for a country where the onset of heart disease is about a decade earlier than others, it is best that we change our cooking methods and move away from deep-frying to lightly sautéing or stir-frying our foods to bring out their true flavours and increase our portion of vegetables in a plate.

“Now the age of patients who get heart bypass surgeries, necessitated by serious blockages of the heart walls, keeps on getting lower and lower. As Today the age of people fir heart deases decreasing from 32 to 27.

It decreases day by day. Hypercholesterolemia, when the body can’t process fats effectively, is a common complaint in the consultation room. Though diet, on its own, may not be the trigger, it definitely, with other factors, compounds the possibility of a heart disease,” says he.

The healthiest oils are those which mostly contain poly and mono-unsaturated fats and which help keep low density lipoprotein (LDL) in check. “I would say all vegetable oils are safer than animal fat derived ones. Anything drawn from nuts and seeds is good.

The worst oils are those which are hydrogenated or have saturated fats. In other words, those that are solid at room temperature like butter, margarine, shortening, lard, animal fat, full-fat dairy and even tropical oils like coconut and palm. Some studies point to coconut oil having a high saturated fat content but some argue that this isn’t the same as the saturated fat found in red meat.

So for taking human health as a primary factor we should be aware towards the oil quality which we are consuming continuosly as it must be beneficial for our body not risky.
