What Are Monounsaturated Fats

Monounsaturated FatsMonounsaturated fats are nonessential fats. Omega-9 (oleic acid) is the most significant monounsaturated fat, which is the major component of olive oil. These fats can be acquired from the food that you eat and human body can make them too.

When you are looking for cooking oil to use, there are several factors to consider, because not all cooking oils that are being sold in the market are healthy to your body. Monounsaturated fats will not turn rancid at room temperature. Just like small tub of expensive “fancy” anchovies packed in extra virgin olive oil, when stored in refrigerator, even for over three years, they will surely taste as fresh as the day you bought them. There are some companies today that fry potato chips and other foods in olive oil, however, this is not a good idea and not even healthy. Olive oil does not have a high smoke point, the point where the oil will start to smoke. You will hear about the Mediterranean diet and how those who follow it are healthier than those who don’t. But olive oil is low in precious PEOs. Olive oil won’t harm patients, but it won’t help them, either. It is merely a relative improvement compared to consuming adulterated fats.

Life systems Engineering Science makes the distinction between lack of a negative (which is still a good outcome) compared to a positive, which is a much better outcome). The reported “success” of the Mediterranean diet amounts to nothing more than lack of consumed adulterated oils. Dr. Rowen came to this conclusion years ago, as well. Imagine patient improvement resulting from the “Power of the Parents” with PEOs.
