I'm going to hazard a guess that excess consumption of carbs has more to do with it than the carbs themselves.

Vegetable oils are the culprit I'm picking out.

They first started as industrial waste from the cotton-picking industry, until companies found ways to detoxify it enough for human consumption.

Global cotton inc. they are on the front lines of byproduct waste turned to cattle food and oil for people to cook with.

No. They have little nutritional value and loads of cholesterol.

How do you know if they had cvd?

Depends on "when" in the past. In terms of evolutionary time the longest period (IE before agriculture) two thirds or more of our calories came from animals.

TL;DR No, this is pretty wrong.
