Incorrect and excessive fat consumption can lead to many serious health problems, from diabetes to cancer, memory loss to infertility, said an Turkish internal medicine specialist Professor Dr. gave a list of healthy fats.

One of the most important points to consider in the diet is the choice of fat. While bad fats threaten our health, good fats protect us from many chronic diseases, especially our heart and brain health.

Turkey Medicals verified member and Internal Medicine Specialist Prof. Dr. explained what you need to know about oils as follows:


Trillions of cells in our body are surrounded by a permeable cell membrane consisting of fats. Trans fats, processed oils, margarine and excess animal saturated fats are not suitable for creating healthy cell membranes. A diet high in saturated fat and trans fat lays the foundation for the breakdown of the immune system and vascular system, hence many health problems such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, stroke, early dementia and impotence. Animal saturated fats should not be consumed because they are associated with cardiovascular diseases and cancer, or organic ones should be preferred if they are to be consumed.


Turkey sunflower, corn, safflower, cotton, sesame, soy, canola and palm oils consumed in abundance today contain Omega 6 and polyunsaturated fats. Since these oils are extracted by heating above 200 degrees, trans fat is formed in them. Even the smallest amount of trans fats found in many ready-made foods, from pastry products to chips, leads to Inflammation (Inflammation) in the body, eventually triggering chronic diseases such as cardiovascular and diabetes.


Getting the fats necessary for our body in the form that nature has offered us, unprocessed, unheated, that is, as a natural nutrient is the most important guarantee of our health. Turkey farm and organically raised animals oils, fish, eggs also walnuts, flax seed, avocado, purslane, which is essential for cardiovascular and brain health and is found in plant foods such as omega 3 fatty acids of oils is one of the healthiest. Because our body does not produce this oil, it must necessarily be taken through nutrients from outside. One of the healthiest fats is olive oil, but since it is rich in calories, it should be consumed in moderation. Cold squeeze olive oil, organic butter, canola and hazelnut oil may be preferred in meals, and cold squeeze olive oil and flax oil may be preferred in salads. Nuts such as walnuts, nuts, almonds can be consumed during decoctions.
