Olive Oil is NOT the Healthiest

We've all heard about the health benefits of olive oil - but did you know...
There are 2 oils far healthier than olive oil.

Sunflower Oil & Safflower Oil:

* have more polyunsaturated - (good fats) than olive oil
* less monounsaturated and less saturated fats (bad fats) than olive oil.

-----------------------------------------------------

FAT FACTS:

The more saturated - the more it sticks together & clogs arteries.
The more unsaturated - the healthier - as it does not stick together.

-----------------------------------------------------

BELOW CHART GUIDE:

BEST = Yellow (polyunsaturated fat) - Healthiest
WORST = Blue (saturated fat) - unhealthiest
IN BETWEEN = Red (monounsaturated) is less unhealthy than a saturated fat, but can still stick to arteries


FOR YOUR BEST HEALTH:
* eat more yellow (polyunsaturated) fats
* eat less blues (saturated) and less reds (monounsaturated).
