Good morning! Would like to chat about hydrogenation, is it really that bad? Heat has allowed us to cook foods we otherwise wouldn't be able to eat, no?

I just wanted to kind of talk about hydrogenation, it's so funny how we as people tend to get on "fads" and just "go with the flow" . . Ever since we all hear hydrogenation is bad we just assume it as fact and believe it! I am not a scientist, and I am still researching about the process, but to me using high heat with anything is nothing to freak out about! It was high heat that allowed us to break down foods we would have never been able to eat, tubers, vegetables, grains!
I think things like this is what makes it grateful to be alive in our time, we can take something like palm oil which is a liquid, and by using the gift of heat we can turn it into a semi-solid!

I just wanted to hear your opinions about hydrogenation. Obviously you can always find a study to prove anything and usually the studies are skewered to yield a certain result. Just going with my gut it doesn't seem like high heat is so bad! And hydrogen is natural, no?

What are your thoughts on the matter?
