35. I remember in University studying Agriculture(which is a STEM program dammit!)

Learning the molecular makeup of different fats. When we got to hydrogenated fats and realized Americans were eating tons of a man made fat our body had no evolutionary history with and decided they were poison.

Since that day I have not intentionally consumed margarine or crisco. Or and type of it.

Over time I have included many other types of oils to my list. I come from a frying culture. And still do it pretty regularly. But now only use lard, duck fat, and olive oil. And yes, you can fry in olive oil if you mind your temperature. If you have ever eaten the delicious fried street food in Italy it was fried in olive oil.

And we still use strictly butter.

And organic where possible.

Iím still gonna die. And it may well be diet related. But it wonít be fake food that kills me. And I will have eaten better than most humans who have ever lived on the planet. That means a lot to me.
