4:13 The #1 worst food for your liver

In this video, we’re going to talk about one of the worst foods you could eat, especially for liver health. There are generally very few symptoms of liver problems. When I had liver problems, I experienced right shoulder blade pain and pain beneath my right rib cage.

It’s a myth that liver damage is permanent. The liver is one of the only organs that can regenerate itself 100%. Another myth is that the liver is filled with toxins. The liver detoxifies poisons, it doesn't store them.

The worst “food” or ingredient for your liver is seed oils. Seed oils are damaging, inflammatory, and high in omega-6 fats, specifically linoleic acid. Lard contains about 2.5% linoleic acid, and tallow only contains 0.7%. Corn oil contains 56.6% linoleic acid!

Seed oils contain oxidized linoleic acid that can cause significant oxidative damage in the body, especially in the liver and the nervous system.

The average diet is 25 to 30% seed oils, which is too much. Seed oils become lodged in our fat cells and the membranes surrounding the nervous system and can remain there for 2 to 3 years.

Seed oils can’t be used for energy. They inflame the liver and contribute to insulin resistance. You should avoid seed oils, including canola oil, soy oil, and cottonseed oil, which are commonly labeled as vegetable oil.

Always check food labels and avoid seed oils and foods that contain them. Replace seed oils with oils high in omega-3 fatty acids rather than omega-6. Reduce your consumption of grain-fed animal products and look for grass-fed meats.

    • @johnw8510 on May 17, 2024 at 1:09 pm

      I think there is a difference in how or even if a liver can heal depending on whether the damage is non alcoholic vrs alcoholic. Once the liver is scarred too severely(cirrhosis of the liver) it just can’t regenerate and can’t function. My sister died from cirrhosis of the liver, some people think drinking alcohol every day is ok, but in reality, when it’s too late, it’s too late.

An exception would be in an area where all of the local cattle eat only grass. In that scenario you might assume it is grass fed because that is the only beef available.

      Not sure what your options are in the UK. I live in Oklahoma in the US. 10 years ago I drove out to the country, knocked on a ranchers door and bought a steer from him. He takes it the butcher for me, and I go pick the meat up. It’s more expensive, but I know the beef is grass fed, and I know exactly where it came from. I have been doing the same thing for 10 years now. I know not everyone has the space to store a whole steer. But if you do, I would highly recommend this option over buying from the grocery store. If you can’t afford to pay for the whole steer at once, find a neighbor, or family member that is up for it, and each of you pay for a side of beef.

    I stopped eating salads at restaurants because many use those fake oils in their salad dressing. They get it in bulk too. They don’t make their own. Some don’t even have Olive Oil at all unless you go to a true Italian restaurant. How can you serve Italian dressing with canola or corn oil? I bring it home and use my own. Same with all the salad dressing bottles sold in the stores. I think I found two that used Olive Oil only. Many say Olive Oil on the front but ingredients show canola or corn as first and Olive oil as second or third ingredient, not to mention some other ingredients that I wouldn’t even know how to pronounce. Definitely a pass. These fake oils are in everything, bread, cakes, cookies, creams, coffee creamers, candy, fried foods, frozen dinners, and zillion more, items that are being consumed the most. No wonder we have so many unhealthy people that are not only overweight but also obese. Too much junk food.
