Essential Fatty Acids Are Not Essential
Re: so how can we get those long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (DHA, EPA, ALA) more safely than from fish oil, algae, or flax oil?
I get asked this often, and it’s an obvious question.
But it’s also a testament about how brainwashed we are by Big Pharma.
The Assassins In White Lab Coats “discovered” omega-3 fatty acids, and they pronounced them “essential” with less than circumstantial evidence.
Asking “How can we get those long-chain omega-3 fatty acids more safely than from fish oil, algae, or flax oil?” is identical to asking …
“How can we get mercury more safely than from methyl mercury, mercury salts, or elemental mercury vapor?”
According to numerous dentists …
“The fact remains, that regardless of its source, the body has no biological need for mercury and even one atom of it is harmful to it.”
Well, according to numerous other sources (including yours truly, Atom Bergstrom) …
“The fact remains, that regardless of its source, the body has no biological need for DHA (or EPA or ALA) and even one atom of it is harmful to it.”
The DHA-EPA-ALA scam is the biggest con job of the 21st Century, concocted by a cabal of malevolent people and perpetuated by a legion of paid “experts” and “experts” who should know better.
Contrary to some people’s paradigms, “essential” fatty acids were not discovered by an herbalist.
Or an acupuncturist.
Or a naturopath.
Or a chiropractor, and so on.
“Essential” fatty acids were discovered by peer-reviewed laboratory factotums of Big Pharma — the human lab rats who put animal lab rats through their paces.
Ray Peat (“Gelatin, stress, and longevity,” 2006-2016) wrote …
“When I was studying the age pigment, lipofuscin, and its formation from polyunsaturated fatty acids, I saw the 1927 study in which a fat free diet practically eliminated the development of spontaneous cancers in rats (Bernstein and Elias). I have always wondered whether George and Mildred Burr were aware of that study in 1929, when they published their claim that polyunsaturated fats are nutritionally essential. The German study was abstracted in Biological Abstracts, and the Burrs later cited several studies from German journals, and dismissively mentioned two U.S. studies* that claimed animals could live on fat-free diets, so their neglect of such an important claim is hard to understand. (*Their bibliography cited, without further comment, Osborne and Mendel, 1920, and Drummond and Coward, 1921.)
“Since 1927, others have demonstrated that the polyunsaturated fats are essential for the development of cancer (and some other degenerative diseases), but the Burrs’ failed to even mention the issue at any time during their careers. How could they, studying fat-free diets, have missed an important contemporary publication, if I, 40 years later, saw it? There were very few publications on dietary fats in those years, so it was hardly possible to miss it.”
