    PUFA are remarkably estrogenic, toxic to the ovaries

    One of the few studies that looks into the issue of whether the xenoestrogenic burden we are exposed to 24x7 in Western countries is due entirely to synthetic, industrial chemicals or if there is more to the story. Well, there is definitely more to the story, and the additional evidence we have...

    Omega-3 increase risk of atrial fibrillation (afib)

    It looks like Big Pharma is just living the dream. Considering doctors left and right are recommending massive doses of omega-3 to everybody and their cat, Big Pharma selling drugs that treat afib seems like the perfect conspiracy of "sell them the poison and then the remedy". Hopefully, the...

    More lipofuscin after being LOW PUFA for 2 years

    2 years ago I started being almost fruitarian [medical medium style]. Eating tons of fruits and developed 1 lipofuscin mole on my stomach. I did that diet for 6 months and than switched to Ray Peat. So very low PUFA for 2 years now. Today I've developed about 20 lipofuscin moles on my face and...

    PUFA required for periodontal disease, aspirin may help

    It is common knowledge even among mainstream dentists that periodontal disease is caused by bacteria accumulating under the gums, which over time leads to chronic inflammation and thus destruction of both gum tissue and the alveolar/jaw bone underneath the gums. Another "new" discover is that...

    Protein and saturated fats beneficial, PUFA detrimental for thyroid

    A good new study, which again confirms that saturated fat is anything but detrimental to our health. Most of the studies until now demonstrating improved thyroid function from saturated fat used coconut oil, and that has led to attacks from mainstream medicine that this pro-thyroid and healthy...

    Prozac reduces polyunsaturated fatty acid lipid concentrations in the brain (of macaque monkeys)

    Abstract Fluoxetine is an antidepressant commonly prescribed not only to adults but also to children for the treatment of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and neurodevelopmental disorders. The adverse effects of the long-term treatment reported in some patients, especially in younger...

    Omega-3 EPA and DHA may be the solution to "male pattern baldness" / hair loss in men

    Follow up to my previous post on Omega-3s and Peat's flawed perspective on them (they increase dopamine and reduce learned helplessness i.e. high serotonin): https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/peat-wrong-about-omega-3-dha-epa-increase-dopamine-and-lower-serotonin.41873/ Recent research...

    Serotonin, PUFA and histamine increase leaky brain

    This is just just another angle showing how stress hormones and PUFA affect the whole body negatively. Increased Blood-brain-barrier permeability(leaky brain) is linked to many diseases : "Blood–brain barrier dysfunction contributes to pathology in a range of neurological conditions including...

    Effects of dietary fatty acids on the social life of male Guinea pigs from adolescence to adulthood

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32504693/ "Dietary intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) or saturated fatty acids (SFAs) differently modulates neurophysiological and behavioral functions in response to altered hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA)-axis...

    Which has more PUFA: Yolk or White?

    I searched online but didn't get an answer. I'd appreciate any response.

    Maternal high-PUFA diet causes alcoholism, aggressiveness, early puberty, and hyper-estrogenism in offspring

    Finally, an intervention study that should help convince some of the die-hard PUFA fans that these fatty acids are far from benign/beneficial, but in fact can cause a variety of chronic diseases. A very important finding of the study, that distinguishes it from other PUFA studies, is that it...

    Air pollution impairs cognition, aspirin is protective

    A new study demonstrating that even short-term (less than a month) exposure to polluted air impaired cognition in humans, and that the mechanism of action was by triggering an inflammatory response. Ergo, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and especially aspirin, were found to be protective. Since...

    Inflammation (from PUFA), not telomeres, determines lifespan / healthspan

    The idea of lifespan being entirely determined by limits on cellular division has ruled biology for more than a century and is perhaps best exemplified by the (in)famous (and false) Hayflick limit. Reaching the said limit is postulated to be controlled by telomere length, and as such the...

    Sterculia oil, SCD1 and inflammation

    To my surprise I didnt find a post on this so I figured I'd make one, because I want to know your opinions. So many of us know Brad Marshall for his Croissant diet, a diet high in stearic acid. Recently he has been researching and writing a lot about the role of the enzyme SCD1 which regulates...

    Why PUFA is bad: how high membrane polyunsaturation decreases longevity

    Why PUFA is bad: how high membrane polyunsaturation decreases longevity: This is probably one of the most interesting papers I've read in a long time . It goes into depth about the danger of PUFA and conncects the dots between PUFA ,membranes ,rate of living theory, life expectancy, and...

    PUFA metabolites may drive bacterial infections and their resistance to antibiotics

    The study below demonstrates yet again that there is hardly an aspect of human health that PUFA does not influence in a detrimental manner, even seemingly non-metabolic aspects such as bacterial infections. As it turns out, most bacteria express the enzyme family known as lipoxygenases (LOX) and...

    DHT / Progesterone / aspirin treat, cortisol ineffective, PUFA promotes prostate cancer

    A great study, albeit in-vitro, that once again throws into doubt the entire hypothesis behind prostate cancer. First, it proves the key role of PUFA in the genesis and progression of prostate cancer by demonstrating that inhibitors of the COX enzyme (responsible for synthesizing prostaglandins...
