Switching from a diet high in these polyunsaturated and refined vegetable oils (partially hydrogenated oils are Trans Fats) to one with raw or at least minimally processed medium chain fatty acids (MCT) can thus reduce our risk of cancer, heart disease, and various other diseases associated with these dangerous refined oil products.

Where do I find these medium chain fatty acids (MCT)?
Rich sources for commercial extraction of beneficial MCTs include palm kernel oil and coconut oil. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medium-chain_triglyceride
I use coconut oil for heating up foods and baking.
When buying it please look for 100% pure coconut oil that is cold-pressed to ensure the highest integrity and quality. Some suppliers mix it with vegetable oil to reduce the cost. Their label may or may not say, “partially hydrogenated”, which is Trans Fat.
Since I do not know if the products in the store are 100% pure, I’ll stay with Silkeny. It rich and creamy and tastes fantastic right out of the bottle. http://www.silkeny.com/our-products/
The best way to predict your future (health) is to create it (with healthy foods today).
Food is medicine. “Doctors need to know about the impact evidence-based lifestyle interventions such as diet can have on chronic conditions. The healing power of diet has been underplayed and, unlike drugs, doesn’t have side-effects. If it was a pill, any company that manufactured it would make billions because the effect is so good.”

As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact. I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol. The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease.
Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.
