    PUFA Increases Risk Of All Cancers, Especially Prostate

    The bad news for PUFA just keep on coming. There seems to be no health pathology that PUFA does not promote, even indirectly. The study below demonstrates that BOTH omega-3 and omega-6 increase risk of ANY cancer and death from it, but specifically the risk of aggressive prostate cancer. It is...

    PUFA Increases Risks Of Skin Cancers

    As the study says - not total fat but its composition in the diet is what drives (skin) cancer risk. And as expected, PUFA "shines" once again. What is particular good about this study is that it exposes both omega-6 and omega-3 as cancer-promoting. Omega-3 has been the defense of last resort...

    PUFA May Drive Obesity, Insulin Resistance, Liver Issues In Diabetes II Patients

    Yet another study where the message is clear - there is nothing "essential" about the PUFA we are bombarded with from all directions be that diet, medical interventions, household products, etc. What makes this study particularly relevant is that PUFA ingestion actually is promoted as one of the...

    America’s Favorite Oil Causes Diabetes, Obesity, Autism, And Liver / Brain Disease

    A series of shockingly direct studies that do not shy away from pointing the finger at the real villain in modern public health history - PUFA, and more specifically the "essential" linoleic acid (LA). As the studies demonstrate, soy oil has strikingly detrimental effects on metabolic health and...

    Anti-Peat Omega 3 Replaces Omega 6 And Lowers Prostaglandin Synthesis

    Differential effects of prostaglandin derived from omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on COX-2 expression and IL-6 secretion. - PubMed - NCBI ”Omega-6 (omega-6) polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), abundant in the Western diet, are precursors for a number of key mediators of...

    Pregnancy, Omega-3/DHA/Fish Oil, Child Development

    Hello, Disclaimer: I discovered this forum a few years back, but was unable to comprehend it. However, I have been keeping my PUFA's intake minimal. Now my wife is pregnant and back again for advice! I know I still have much reading to do in regards to RP, but because my wife is now pregnant...

    Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplements Do Not Prevent Cancer Or CVD

    November 10, 2018 DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa1811403 Abstract BACKGROUND Higher intake of marine n−3 (also called omega-3) fatty acids has been associated with reduced risks of cardiovascular disease and cancer in several observational studies. Whether supplementation with n−3 fatty acids has such...

    PUFA Enhance Glucocorticoid (cortisol) Signalling

    I posted some studied in the past on the estrogenic and pro-cortisol effects of PUFA, as well as the pro-androgen effects of SFA. One of those studies showed that PUFA increases cortisol synthesis even in the absence of ACTH, which suggests that they may have pituitary hormonal-like effects...

    PUFA Is Essential For Cancer, Aspirin And/or Blocking Estrogen Therapeutic

    While this study is not something that will come as surprising to the forum members, I decided to post it because it directly points the finger at BOTH omega-6 and omega-3 unsaturated fats as causes of GI and pancreatic cancers. While the study includes the standard "disclaimer" that omega-3...

    PUFA Inhibit Progesterone Production And Thus Drive/cause Menopause

    Peat wrote in a few of his articles that menopause is largely driven by a deficiency of progesterone and mentioned several anecdotes of women in their 50s and 60s getting their periods back after supplementing with large doses progesterone. In one of his articles he said that PUFA and estrogen...

    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...

    Another Study Links PUFA To Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    I posted some studies a few months ago, which showed that PUFA metabolites are elevated in patients with AD, and that blocking PUFA metabolism can reverse the pathology (in an animal model). Increased Pufa Oxidation May Be Biomarker For Alzheimers Blocking PUFA Metabolism May Reverse Alzheimer...

    Omega-3 (DHA, EPA) Degrades The Androgen Receptor

    One of the reasons the medical industry continues to promotes the use of fish oils is that in animal studies it was shown to shrink the prostate. The mechanism was never fully elucidated, but I suspected it is probably not a good one. This study shows that omega-3 fatty acids are anti-androgenic...
