Can you please explain how to go about to use normal oil in my car? As this the first time I've ever heard of it and it's quit interesting Topic to me. Many thanks in advance m8.
Thanks for the info. Love to hear other opinions. 'Experts' are always slamming other people's research...often whoever's got the bigger backer ($$$) wins. And these people paying for the research have a vested interest. For e.g most avocado positive research has been paid for by the Hass Avocado Group of suppliers! Not necessarily meaning it's not true, but harder for me to buy into it when the people who want to sell you something are paying for research to prove it's good for you. Just look at the cock-up with Diesel cars... Lack of physical work must also have an impact. My grandparents would eat more sugary (home-made) snacks and plenty of bread and dairy, but they lived a ripe old age with no significant health issues. Grandfather was a railroad worker and grandma was a housewife with no dishwasher, washing machine etc. They used sunflower and cottonseed oils with no ill effects - maybe it was produced differently? It certainly wasn't as cheap as it is now. I really can't stand the taste of coconut oil in my recipes requiring a fair bit of heat. Avocado oil I have not tried. UPDATE: Just looked at the price of Avocado Oil! £3 per 100ml. No chance! I will take the risk of living without it - i'm sure I will be fine! I may switch back to groundnut oil instead of sunflower. I am not concerned about the cholesterol issues surrounding groundnut (peanut) oil as I get enough 'good' cholesterol and look after my self in general. My preference is to rather eat an avocado (whole fruit benefits) than the oil. Same with EVOO - rather eat olives (whole fruit benefits). I cut down drastically on EVOO (been 2 years) and I don't notice any changes to be honest. Speaking of whole foods, I received this link earlier today... nomeatathlete.com/oil/ Not had a chance to go through but a couple of other articles of his were interesting.
I appreciate that you come from a food industry, but my brother is a nutritionist and my best friend is a chemical researcher for a leading food company, and also the links you posted have been slammed by leading specialists in the field of cardiology.See here RE: coconut oil The main form of oil in this is MCT which can be brought separately from health food stores and is scientifically proven to be the best saturated fat for our bodies. Closely followed by lauric acid which is again, you guessed it, in said oils. Sunflower oil is extracted using the same chemicals used in leather, shoes and roofing. It is terrible for you and while in moderation won't directly kill, is a direct link to heart issues, cholesterol problems, and there are studies now into what the production process itself does to us too. If it isn't coming out naturally, we shouldn't be forcing the oil out. Funny you should mention Cancer too, as if you look into what cancer actually needs to live, it is not fat or oil but carbs. It lives off the carbs (glucose) in our system, so an anti-cancer effect would be actually eating MORE fat, good quality meat, and limiting those biscuits you mentioned. (Perhaps biased coming from a ketogenic dieter, but I've lost 8kg in a month and feel awesome so..) Agree on your points about booze and exercise, always vital to keep fit. Also super agree on your choice to use Ghee and butter, but I would lose the sunflower and use coconut or avocado, or olive if you can't afford those, cos they are pricier. And as always, this is intended purely for debate and not for insult. :)
I have just found this oil in the Leyland extra store but it isn't with the other oils it is opposite the fresh bread on the end of an isle, this is fore you joeseager.
With the symptoms that you describe, there are two issues at play. Assuming the vehicle is suitable for use with vegetable oil: (1) Using vegetable oil (in any percentage mix) in an ageing diesel vehicle has the effect of freeing up historical petro-based 'gunge deposits' in the fuel pipes. Those deposits are/were happy to stay clinging to the insides of the tank/pipes when continuing to use diesel fuel. BUT, after a few weeks/months of using vegetable oil, it's the vegetable oil that frees-up/scours those petro-based gunge deposits, and they then flow, and get stick in, the fuel system ports/orifices (including the pipes themselves). That leads to blocked pipes, and worse. It has happened to me. (2) Prolonged, constant use of vegetable oil will lead to vegetable-based gums forming in the tank, pipes and diesel pump (think of an old frying pan, where the vegetable oil has never been fully cleaned from its surface). Thinning down the tank's vegetable oil with a small percentage of petrol helps deter bacterial growth in the tank, and helps winter/cold starts, but 'fuel system gumming' will still occur. The best course of action is to use one full tank of diesel for every three or four full tanks of vegetable oil. That way, the regular tank of diesel will clean the system through before any significant gumming builds up.
