    The Low-Fat Era - A Big Fat Lie?

    You hear all the time from low-carb/keto/carnivore people that the introduction of low-fat products and the governmental push of low-fat diets is a major cause of today's health problems. So I actually tried to dig up nutrition statistics over the ages. If you actually look at the statistics...

    Diet (PUFA) Causes Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

    Rates of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as ulcerative colitis (UC) have been steadily increasing and predominantly so in the youngest cohorts studied. The official cause of UC is of course "unknown" even though the public health authorities do admit that an environmental agent is most...

    PUFA, From Formula Feeding Or Maternal Obesity, May Cause Leukemia

    Another great study, and one of the few that dares point the finger at medicine's Holy Grail - the "essential fatty acids". As the study aptly says, high levels of PUFA in the blood and especially higher levels of linoleic acid predict subsequent development of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)...

    PUFA/Statins Promote UV Damage & Skin Cancer (melanoma), Cholesterol Is Protective

    Several people asked Peat over email about the dangers of sun exposure. He responded by saying that the main danger is the lipid (PUFA) perodixation caused by the UV lights and that taking some aspirin, vitamin E, or niacinamide greatly reduces the damage. The study below confirms that PUFA may...

    PUFA As The Main Cause Of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) And Organ Failure

    Some more evidence on the role of PUFA as a big factor in CVD. While the evidence is not widely discussed on mainstream media, and a few saboteur attempt against coconut oil have recently been published, nonetheless a few "runaways" do make it to front page news and we have posted them on the...

    Elevated PUFA In Blood Drive Metabolic Syndrome And Diabetes

    Some good evidence on the role of PUFA and inflammation in obesity and diabetes. The findings that FFA are elevated in obese people is not surprising and even mainstream medicine has wisened up to that fact. The surprising (for the authors) part was that unsaturated fats were involved in the...

    PUFA Required/essential For Cancer; Stearic Acid Is A PUFA Antagonist & Anti-cancer

    Two studies showing that PUFA (linoleic) acid is essential for cancer development. As the studies show, cancer cells accumulate large quantities of oleic acid and the saturation index (SI) - i.e. ratio of stearic/oleic acids in erythrocytes (RBC) is very low in cancer. This SI can also be used...

    The Carcinogenic And Estrogenic Effects Of PUFA

    Yet another study, which I decided to post because it is one of the few studies that directly points the finger at PUFA (and linoleic acid in particular - the nemesis of user @Travis) as the cause of breast, colon, prostate and other cancers. It also provides evidence for greatly increase serum...

    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...

    Inhibition Of Sperm Motility And Agglutination Of Sperm Cells By Free Fatty Acids In Whole Semen

    Interesting....... "The effects of a serial dilution of linoleic acid on human spermatozoa in whole semen was tested on 21 semen samples obtained from 11 normal volunteers. The minimal concentration of linoleic acid required to stop the movement of at least 75% of the moving sperm ranged from 1...

    Excess Linoleic Acid Increases Collagen I/III Ratio And “Stiffens” The Heart Muscle Following High F

    Excess Linoleic Acid Increases Collagen I/III Ratio and “Stiffens” the Heart Muscle Following High Fat Diets Abstract Controversy exists on the benefits versus harms of n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-6 PUFA). Although n-6 PUFA demonstrates anti-atherosclerotic properties, survival...

    Correcting Linoleic Acid "deficiency" Clears Acne?

    This study says "Acne patients have also been shown to have low levels of linoleic acid in their skin surface lipids." Essential fatty acids and acne. - PubMed - NCBI A few blogs like Oils Specifically For Acne Prone Skin report a clearing of the skin when applying linoleic acid topically...

    Eating PUFA Instead Of Butter Increases Overall Death Rates And CVD

    This is actually a human study and the sad part is that the study was actually done 50 years ago. Why was this data kept unpublished for so long is hard to explain but at least the truth is coming out. Note how the popular press title is worded carefully to avoid casting PUFA in completely...
