Alzheimer Disease (AD) linked to PUFA accumulation in brain

So much for the “beneficial” effects of PUFA. What makes this study particularly interesting is that it calls into question a favorite defensive maneuver of clinical nutritionists. Namely, when challenged about the known inflammatory effects of omega-6 fatty acids, most medical professionals make a desperate claim that omega-3 fatty acids are actually protective and we … Read more Alzheimer Disease (AD) linked to PUFA accumulation in brain

PUFA may be a major factor in sterility

Just a few days ago I made a post about PUFA driving obesity, inflammation, and liver damage in diabetes II patients. The omega-6 fatty acid DLGA (a metabolite of linoleic acid) was the main pathological factor examined in that study. Now, a new study study demonstrates that DLGA may also cause sterility. Official estimates indicate … Read more PUFA may be a major factor in sterility

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 mind boggling that in … Read more PUFA increases risk of all cancers, especially prostate

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 likely at fault. UC is an “autoimmune” condition and … Read more Diet (PUFA) causes inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

PUFA is a cancer “sensitizer”

A neat study, which demonstrates that in addition to its direct carcinogenic effects, PUFA is also a cancer “sensitizer” – i.e. is triggers the development of cancer in the presence of less-than-healthy chemicals that are relatively harmless by themselves. This sensitizing role of PUFA seems to be well-known to the research community and applies to … Read more PUFA is a cancer “sensitizer”

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 for modern nutritional … Read more PUFA increases risks of skin cancers

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 healthiest ways to keep weight at bay, … Read more PUFA may drive obesity, insulin resistance, liver issues in diabetes II patients

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 the main culprit, at least as far … Read more America’s favorite oil causes diabetes, obesity, autism, and liver / brain disease
