    PUFA Is Directly Catabolic (without Cortisol/estrogen), SFA Is Anabolic

    I posted a few studies about PUFA potentiating the stress response and cortisol synthesis, even without the typical elevations of ACTH present in organic stress reactions. Saturated fats block that pro-stress effects of PUFA...

    Different Effect Of MUFA Vs SFA On Tissues PUFA Content

    Comparative effects of high oleic acid vs high mixed saturated fatty acid obesogenic diets upon PUFA metabolism in mice. - PubMed - NCBI Abstract Emerging evidence indicates that the fatty acid composition of obesogenic diets influences physiologic outcomes. There are scant data regarding how...

    PUFA Is Estrogenic And Androgen/Progesterone Antagonist

    As Peat mentioned many times and I discussed on Danny Roddy's shows, PUFA is a powerful endocrine disruptor. As such, it has direct effects on steroids and expression of steroids receptors in cells that go beyond its metabolism into the inflammatory mediators (even though those amplify the...

    Plant Diet Increases Risk Of Cancer And CVD Due To PUFA

    This article is a little odd but I decided to post it anyways. It basically claims that humans have a mutation that was caused by eating high plant diet and that mutation makes arachidonic acid so dangerous. I don't know if buy the genetics argument, but I do like the fact that the author openly...

    Male Fertility Requires Progesterone And Antagonism Of A PUFA Metabolite

    Ray has written many times on progesterone's role in both female and male health. This study discovered that sperm actually has a progesterone "receptor" on its tail, and it is the activation of this "receptor" by progesterone that allows sperm to make the final push into the egg and perform the...

    PGD2 From Arachidonic Acid Causes Baldness. What About O3s?

    It's been established that Prostaglandin D2, which is formed from Arachidonic acid, causes hair loss. There is an analogous chemical, called Prostaglandin D3, which is formed from Eicosapentaenoic acid. What is the mechanism by which PGD2 causes hair loss, and do you think PGD3 could cause...
