Most of our diseases are caused by an imbalance of the three components – vata, pitta and kapha. Often refined oil is a cause for ruining the diet. Gasoline, synthetics, antioxidants etc are often used in oil refining. Refined oil is odourless as it is devoid of vitamins. It is also not sticky as its fatty acids are already removed so also vitamin E and minerals. Refined oil is extremely deleterious to the health of man.
It also contains components which are harmful to the human body. Substances such as LDL are created in the human body due to it resulting in blockages in coronary arteries and serious illnesses such as heart disease. As in the refining process oil is first boiled to 300 degrees Celsius and then to 464 degrees Celsius it becomes even more poisonous.
As against this oil milled in a wooden mill is extremely pure, chemical free and healthy. Bedsides it is produced in a natural way, as prescribed in the scriptures. It smells of pure oil and is sticky as it contains 4 to 5 types of vitamins. As there is minimum friction in a wooden mill not a single natural component from it is lost. The temperature when producing it is only 40 to 45 degrees Celsius hence the natural components in it are conserved. Consequently the liver produces high density lipoprotein that the body requires. Pure oil maintains a balance in vata (air), preventing diseases caused by its (vata) saturation. This oil is beneficial in diseases such as diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, hemiplegia etc. So let us consume oil milled in a wooden mill and live a long, balanced life !
