Soybean oil is linked to obesity, diabetes, and cancer. In one animal study, mice who were fed soybean oil over coconut oil significantly increased their body fat, became glucose intolerant, insulin resistant, and some developed diabetes. In a human study, replacing saturated animal fats with soybean oil led to an increased risk of death in heart-disease patients.*
Avoid soybean oil and opt for organic coconut oil instead. If you enjoy the taste of coconut, try virgin or extra-virgin versions, which pack more coconut flavor.
