PUFA is part of spike protein, PUFA restriction may treat COVID-19

A pair of studies forwarded by one of my readers. The first one discovered that a PUFA – linoleic acid – is part of the structure of the spike protein. The latter is perhaps the most pathogenic portion of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and likely responsible for causing most of the symptoms now known as COVID-19. … Read more

Higher PUFA intake correlated with mental disease

An epidemiological study, yet still useful IMO since the correlation was maintained across the various levels of PUFA intake – i.e. the higher the PUFA intake the higher the prevalence of a mental disorder such as depression, which suggests a causal link. The link was the strongest in males and increased with age in both … Read more

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) in children. While the study is … Read more
