Can you believe that what is said to be healthy can actually be more harmful instead?

That is the case for the regular consumption of vegetable oils. Vegetable oils are only a part of seed oils and other food that contain an unhealthy amount of linoleic acid and toxins that are detrimental to the body. These actually contribute to affecting people with heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and dementia - chronic diseases that we are not born with but accumulate according to our lifestyle practices.
