    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...

    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 Cause Fatal Swelling Seen In Brain Infections; SFA Are Harmless

    Conditions like meningitis and brain abscess are on the rise and there is currently no explanation why. The fatality of such conditions is usually not due to the infection itself but due to the swelling of the brain, which results in compression of the brainstem and often herniation, both of...

    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...

    Inhibition Of PUFA Metabolism (LOX) Trigger Immediate Apoptosis In Prostate Cancer

    These studies show that PUFA has both direct (linoleic) and secondary (through LOX) stimulating effect on prostate cancer growth, independently of any hormones. Inhibiting the LOX-5 pathway led to immediate growth arrest and apoptosis of prostate cancer cells. The important message for both...
