Good Fat vs Bad Fat..

Hi guys..

I'm currently feel so bored about everything...bout my life, my works, bout everything..n of course laziness comes one after another...

Anyway..did u guys catch "Good Fat Bad Fat" show on AFC(Asia Food Channel) last few days..? If u didn't..dont worry the show surely will be on TV repeatedly until people can even remember each and every words of the show...hehehe...

It was really2 a good show..And personally I think the program really educated people about the fact that palm oil is not as bad as people think(of course compared to other oil product in the market)...

And it is amazing to know that scientist has proven that in term of quality and the portion of good and bad fat in the oil, PALM OIL actually can be rank with OLIVE OIL..it offer almost the same LDL and HDL to our body..i' not saying that we should take palm oil as much as possible since it is good..NO..it's totally wrong..taking too much oil(any types of oil) will surely risks you with unhealthy condition for your body..

But, what is LDL and HDL??LDL is bad cholestrol meanwhile HDL is the good one..HDL is very needed in our body to protect us from heart attack, but LDL will damage our body by building up inner walls of the arteries...so which one do you want?LDL or HDL?so my advice is, if you really care bout ur health, please check the nutrition facts at the back of the bottle before you buy anything...NOT every expensive good is good..and always try to avoid TRANS FAT and saturated fat!!..nowadays people are trying to look for options and more of them are not taking trans fat anymore..and of course the one of the options is palm oil..this is one of the things I got from the show..

Now..I would like to show you a table of effects of different types of fats to the good(HDL) and bad(LDL) cholestrol..it is shown that TRANS FAT will increase the LDL and decrease the HDL..and I want to tell you another fact from the show here...among all countries in the world..Americans are on the top in terms of number of obesity..Why?because Americans take fast food almost every day(including burgers, fries, etc)..and most of the foods contain trans fat oil...so beware..





hmmm...I was wondering, why olive oil were very expensive in price but not for our palm oil..maybe because number of production for olive oil is much smaller rather than other oil so that they increase the price..well..it is about business after all..hmm..MAYBE...anyway it's just my simple thought...
