Do Vegetable Oils Cause Premature Aging?


Vegetable Oils Cause Premature Aging in Millions of Americans

"A plastic surgeon did a study in which he examined the diets of his patients and correlated them with facial skin wrinkling. Those patients eating a high vegetable fat diet had 78% more facial wrinkles and many appeared twenty years older than they were." - William Campbell Douglass, M.D., author of "Eat Your Cholesterol"

Note: Vegetable oils are also one reason your skin gets sunburned. They are found in baked goods and other processed foods such as cookies, cakes, crackers, breads, doughnuts and deep-fried French fries. Take these out of your diet, add in good quality fats and good oils (especially virgin olive oil) and you'll likely notice a difference when you're exposed to the sun.
