This review takes a deep look at increases in the incidence of cancer and heart disease after
the introduction of industrial vegetable oils in the world. Most vegetable oils are highly
processed and refined products, which completely lack the essential nutrients. Omega-6
Linoleic acid from vegetable oils increases oxidative stress in the body of humans, contributing
to endothelial dysfunction and heart disease. The consumption of these harmful oils which are
high in mega-6 polyunsaturated fats results in changing the structure of cell membrane which
contribute to increasing inflammation and the incidence of cancer.
