Question: Since all vegetable oils, except olive oil, cause significant inflammation, does peanut butter also cause inflammation?





Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Peanut butter contains peanut oil. I advise organic peanut butter. You will notice that the oil separates. To reduce the inflammatory effect, drain off the oil and replace it with extra virgin olive oil, which contains a number of anti-inflammatory factors. It will not affect the flavor and it will not separate. You should avoid eating a lot of peanut butter because aflotoxin, a known liver carcinogen, is commonly found in peanut butter (even high-quality brands). Also, peanuts are relatively high in glutamate, an excitotoxin.
