    An interesting thing about that list of what fats/oils to avoid, walk down your baking/cooking oil aisle in your local grocery store and what major brands do you see? Mazola - corn oil, Crisco and Wesson - canola oil, Saffola -safflower oil. And what do they often recommend for those with high cholesterol? Corn oil, canola oil and safflower oil. I prefer to use butter and bacon grease. Corn oil and canola oi do not IMHO make good gravy. As for safflower oil, my older sister is highly allergic to safflower. For spreadable I use either whipped butter, if I remember to take it out to soften, otherwise I use spreadable butter with olive oil.
    A lot of the latino stores that i would buy from are big in frying everything with the cheapest oil possible.
    I dont eat much fried food nor cook it but use barbecue for 90% of what i make.
    sometime i use some oak and do this even in the dead of winter...
    I dont eat much red meat but mostly fish and chicken and vegs..
    Growing up my dad use to cook with bacon fat and although tasty I dont.
    I dont even eat bacon anymore..
    my regular dr is a heart specialist too and its funny as when there i watch the cars
    picking up at the drivethru MCDONALDS...I told him he should put a poster in that window
    saying "come here when you start to care about your heart"..
    There is no perfect blueprint but we know what

    i hope you don't get the coconut oil to the smoking stage.. something about the overheated oil can cause cancer...

    But, I agree with your other choices .. when using ACTUAL butter I prefer to use the Un Salted brand. I really don't like salt when there are other great flavors you can achieve with spices. Or certain acidic fruits.

    Peanut oil is great for pan or deep frying. Strain your spent oil thru a GOOD paper towel and you can extend the uses to 4 -5 times as opposed to throwing it out.
    **Caveat - you don't want to mix fish fried in the oil with chicken or veggies/fries keep the fish oil seperate ***

    All the major dairy brands around here sell unsalted butter. A lot of the time it is labeled as sweet creamery butter though most are starting to include "No Added Salt" on the packaging. One other thing to watch out for is monosodium glutamate, MSG. Found as a flavor enhancer in a lot of packaged food and oriental food. It enhances flavor by over stimulating the taste buds which eventually destroys some of your taste buds.

    The only oriental prepackaged I buy is wonton/seaweed wrappers.

    WHO guidance: Healthy people should wear masks only when 'taking care of' coronavirus patients

    WHO’s new guidance for healthy people wearing masks.
    Healthy people need only wear masks when taking care of someone who has the Chinese Coronavirus.

    Another huge Flip-Flop on wearing masks!
    Should we?? Shouldn’t we?? Who knows anymore!!

    Great article from FOX FAKE News

    We now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms ('asymptomatic') and that even those who eventually develop symptoms ('pre-symptomatic') can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms," the CDC mask guidance says. "In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain."

    So the answer is YES Wear a Mask not only to protect Yourself but to keep You from infecting others around you.
