Thanks a lot for countering the misinformation online.

After YouTube promoters got bored from the keto and low-carb wave (even though all dietary guidelines, plus associations like the American Heart Association, recommend consumption of complex grains and complex carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables), YouTube promoters had to find something new to assign the blame on.

Vegetable oils, and the derogatory term they assigned to it (“seed oils”), became the new target 🎯 Some within the same group even turned it up a notch and started suggesting eating only meat, which goes against all medical recommendations – not just even dietary recommendations, but even recommendations from heart health associations, long-term brain health associations, longevity associations, etc. etc.

In general, YouTube "health" promoters have to go against the grain (pun intended) to generate social media traction. If they just say: be careful of your daily caloric intake, daily sodium intake, and daily saturated fats intake, eat complex grains, lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, dark leafy greens, olive oil, and maybe fish once or twice a week – no one will listen to them. Because everyone knows that already. Yes, it can be hard – but hard does not make such recommendations wrong.

For people who are interested about evidence-based dietary guidelines (which is different from citing random nutritional studies), I would highly recommend below podcast, and this episode in particular:

Sigma Nutrition – Reflecting on ten years of Lessons https://open.spotify.com/episode/2KTfkW0FstvEeqnwkrjM5A

Moreover, the channel:

"Nutrition Made Simple!" https://www.youtube.com/@NutritionMadeSimple

seems to be quite consistent (so far) at countering the dangerous nutrition myths that are spread by YouTube influencers.

Good luck!
