Welp, that'll be kinda difficult. Ya see, the knowledge I possess comes from many many many years of reading. Pretty hard to narrow down any one specific study or article.

However, I'd be happy to answer any questions or do my best point to an appropriate source related to such question.

Did you know this ..... That prior to the 1900's, heart attacks, heart disease, arteriosclerosis, were a rarity. Then, around that time, in 1903, someone came up with a way to hydrolyze cotton seed oil, (cotton seed oil that was used prior solely for machine lubrication and lamp oil, became CRISCO, a modification of the phrase, crystallized cottonseed oil. Yup, it's true. Then by demonizing the use of lard, by the use heavy advertising, woman across America threw out any semblance of logic or common sense, stopped using lard, and started using CRISCO. And guess what happened? You guessed it, heart attacks, heart disease, arteriosclerosis, began it's skyward trajectory to make it today's number one cause of all mortality in the US. Of course, today, CRISCO is not made with cotton seed oil anymore, (which btw, they call a "vegetable" oil. Ya can't make this shait up), instead they now use, Soybean Oil, Fully Hydrogenated Palm Oil, Palm Oil, Mono And Diglycerides, TBHQ And Citric Acid. Which the body has no idea of what to do with because it is not bioavailable.

All so called "vegetable" oils, palm, canola, safflower, corn, cottonseed, palm-kernel, and soybean, are all detrimental to human health as the body cannot deal with it and therefore cause all kinds of body inflammations.

Can you tell the difference between a "vegetable" seed oil refinery and a crude oil refinery? Might as well just eat motor oil.

This is a seed oil refinery plant.

I’m going to question your timeline, until the 50’s the cooking oil of preference was bacon grease.

But why take it at all when it has been proven that stopping the body from producing cholesterol is not a good thing? And that it is diet that is the cause of heart and arterial problems? Why take something that stops the natural operation of a major organ in the human body? The brain's weight consists of over 60% cholesterol. Why inhibit the brain's health? Cholesterol is a building block of your cells. It helps your body create bile, hormones and vitamin D. It also helps with various bodily functions, including cell building and repair, bile production, and hormone production. It also aids in the production of sex hormones. Is a building block for human tissues. And assists in bile production in the liver.

Again, cholesterol is not the villain that the pharmaceuticals and the medical complex make it out to be. I would offer you to study more on the subject and put your health in your own hands. Patient heal thyself. Doctors will not tell you to change your diet. If they did, most would be out of business. And a business it is, the continual 'treatment', rather than the cure, and keeping patients ignorant, is what keeps them in business. So, put them out of business.

The plaque that builds up in arteries and in the heart, is put there as a temporary band-aide, as a scab, to help heal the scar, the damage, and inflammation, caused by high sugar levels from all types of sugars, refined carbs, seed oils, etc.. The continuation of this diet is what causes the buildup over time that causes heart issues. This is why, with a change of diet, it can all be reversed and all that plaque build up will be taken back up and leave those arteries clean and fully open once again. Back to good normal health.
I have no doubt that a lot of the food we consume today contains elements we probably should not be eating. But I'm not convinced that Crisco is the sole cause of the many cardio problems we have today. In 1903, we were well into the second industrial revolution. As more inventions came on the market, people didn't have to work as hard. We don't get the physical activity our 19th century ancestors did and I believe that is a big part of why we are where we are today.

Well, question away. Crisco was introduced to market shelves in 1911 by Procter & Gamble. Now, I am not saying that Crisco was adopted by everyone at the same time. What I am saying, is that manufactured crap, (known as "vegetable" oils), began hitting the market, and manufacturing food companies began in earnest using it.

In my house growing up, mom used Crisco for frying chicken, baking, and so on. And yes, we had the number 10 coffee can on the stove top filled with bacon grease as well.

You are correct. Crisco is not the sole cause of heart problems today. But Crisco was the beginning. Then came other seed "vegetable" oils. Today, as I said earlier, there are many type of seed "vegetable" oils on the market. As well, nearly all manufactured foods have some sort, one or more in ingredient lists, of these oils. They are nearly inescapable. And why is that? Because their use vastly increases the profits of food corporations. Add to this tons of sugars added, including HFCS, refined carbohydrates, highly processed foods, and you have the makings of people knocking on death's door sooner rather than later.

Eating a healthy natural diet, even without much exercise, one would still be healthy and wouldn't need be worried about heart problems because they wouldn't have any associated inflammations caused by such a natural diet.

I'm 100% on board with what you are saying about food consumption. But without proper exercise, muscle will atrophy. And the heart is a muscle.

True to the extent for a person that sits all day in an office then plants their butt on a couch when they get home. But just the act of walking, during time of the day, or for daily stroll in a park or neighborhood, is sufficient exercise. In addition to those that do physical labor such as in the trades.

Atrophy is a severe end product from a complete lack of locomotion. Not many people are in such circumstances. Just from the act of day to day living, people use all their muscles. Maybe not from lifting weights, but just from normal life activities.

Somehow I've missed trying paella all these years of bouncing around the world. That changed last Sunday. Freaking awesome...and the young lady that cooked it really knew what she was doing.

Looks great if it wasn't for all the barnacles in there.

It must be too close to the water.

Just sneakin' around....
I'll probably get reamed for this but....

I don't like Old Bay. I have one can, hardly any used, must be 10 years old.

What I do like is a 'Tuscan Italian' spice mix I got from BJs, but they no longer sell it. :ohwell: A real nice change up on steak.

I don't even have it in the house.

One of my all time favorite meals, doesn't look like much saffron was used in that pan!
The rice?...there is (was) a thick layer of that under all that other stuff in the picture. The bottom of it was browned perfectly when she turned the heat off and started serving it with a large spatula that made sure you got the bottom layer.

Saffron the spice from Spain, usually gives paella a yellow tint like turmeric.

I always heard they give everyone utensils and it was eaten right from the pan at the table.

I was going by this..."Saffron rice is a dish made from saffron, white rice..." When I arrived at the event, everything was already piled up on the rice and that big pan, so I couldn't tell if the rice was yellowed or not.
