Is long-term eat lard good to the body? Cardiovascular doctors tell you

Personally, I have feelings for lard, but to answer this question, is it good for my health to eat lard often? I think we should give an objective answer instead of emotional response. < / P > < p > I was born in the 1980s. When I was a child, my family was not rich. In my village, every family ate lard, and only fried some local snacks with plants on New Year’s day. There was very little tea oil because it was too expensive. So at that time, lard: vegetable oil was 9:1. It didn’t matter whether it was healthy or not. It didn’t matter whether it was delicious or not, because there was no other choice. However, the total intake should not be too much. How many people can eat one dish per meal. < / P > < p > in middle school, many months of the year were spent on campus. Most of the school canteens were made of vegetable oil. In fact, there was very little oil. Sometimes it was just a little oily on the surface, which made the body grow and consumed a lot. I miss the lard cooking at home. After that, the conditions at home have also improved. When I get home, I will eat more lard. Estimated at that time lard: vegetable oil was 5:5. Occasionally I heard someone say that lard is not good, and I don’t know what’s bad, but I don’t think so. Everyone eats it, and my parents eat whatever they cook. < / P > < p > I went to university, far away from my hometown, and spent most of the year at school. Of course, the food in the canteen is enough. It was estimated that lard: vegetable oil was 7:3 at that time. Through my study in medical college, I learned that animal oil contains higher saturated fatty acids and vegetable oil contains higher unsaturated fatty acids; I learned that excessive saturated fatty acids will increase the risk of cardiovascular disease; I wanted to eat less lard and advised my parents and family to eat vegetable oil instead. < / P > < p > I’m afraid I’ll come back to my hometown with two hands when I go to work. My family, work unit and takeout all eat vegetable oil. Occasionally I’m greedy to buy some fat meat in the market for refining. But at this time, the fat meat seems to have run out of oil, and it’s not the same flavor as before. At this time, lard: vegetable oil is 9:1. < / P > < p > in terms of the nutritional composition of lard, fatty acids account for 99%, of which saturated fatty acids account for 40%, which is relatively high. In addition, it also contains cholesterol, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, and other minerals. So fat is a nutritious food. < / P > < p > from the perspective of energy supply, both sugar and fat can provide energy, of which 1g sugar can provide 4 kcal of energy, and 1g fat can provide 9 kcal of energy. Therefore, fat is a kind of nutritional food with high heat energy. < / P > < p > suppose that 1800-2400 kcal is enough for an adult of 60 kg in daily life. In accordance with the recommendations of, the energy supply from edible oil should be less than 10%, that is 180 ~ 240 kcal, converted into fat, that is 20 ~ 26G. Just look at the pyramid below. The oil is near the top. The recommended intake is very small. < / P > < p > in terms of energy: if you live in poverty, eating the same amount of lard and vegetable oil can provide more energy, which is very good. If you have excess energy, you should eat less lard or vegetable oil, about 25g per day. According to the types of fatty acids, vegetable oil contains more unsaturated fatty acids, while lard contains more saturated fatty acids. The former is more conducive to health, while the latter can be consumed in many foods except lard. Especially for the people who already have hypertension, coronary heart disease, hyperlipidemia, cerebral infarction and obesity, it is recommended to reduce the intake of saturated fatty acids as much as possible, that is to say, eat less or no lard. < / P > < p > cooking is important: don’t assume that vegetable oil is healthy. Vegetable oil is not resistant to high temperature. After frying, frying and baking, it will destroy nutrients and produce harmful components. Lard, by contrast, is more resistant to high temperatures. In conclusion, lard is a nutritious, high-energy food with special flavor. Lard is not taboo for people without cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and their high-risk groups, but excessive intake is certainly not good; if you are willing to change to vegetable oil, it is not necessarily good, at least not bad. For those who already have definite cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases or high-risk groups, it is recommended to use vegetable oil with more unsaturated fatty acids, which is certainly beneficial. Similarly, we should control the intake. After all, it is also oil. 2
