All Fat Is Not Created Equal

Anyone wanting to put on water weight only needs to look to the water — seafood.

DHA, EPA, and ALA assault the liver.

It’s death by a thousand paper cuts — death by free radicals.

<>

Slow death — Yellow Fat Disease — goes unnoticed in our society.

Who notices a year or two off the top?

Or ten pounds or so on the belly or backside?

<>

Doctors don’t look at livers anymore.

The only thing they see is paperwork listing …

alanine transaminase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), albumin and total protein, aspartate transaminase (AST), bilirubin,
gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT), and prothrombin time (PT).

What else is there to know? (asked with dripping sarcasm)

<>

Today’s Medical Mafia can’t even tell the difference between Fatty Liver Disease and Waxy Liver Disease.

The latter is easy to spot — in the morgue. It’s ROUND and SMOOTH and BRIGHT YELLOW.

<>

Once upon a time, doctors knew the difference.

Charles Hilton Fagge, M.D. (The Principles and Practice of Medicine, 1886) wrote …

“I have already […] alluded to the fact that a cirrhosed liver often contains much fat, particularly when it is increased in size, and that the nodules on its surface can then often be felt through the abdominal walls. But in the affection with which I have now to deal the organ is usually perfectly smooth. Its edge is somewhat rounded. In the dead body it is found to be anæmic, having a more or less [—>] bright yellow color [<—], but, as Rindfleisch remarks, one must not suppose that it has the same appearance during life, for it can be injected without the employment of any great force, so that the vis a tergo [the force
driving the venous return] of the blood probably suffices to overcome the resistance excited by the distended cells so long as the heart is beating. The organ is soft and tears very readily beneath the pressure of the finger. Its specific gravity is diminished, sometimes even to such an extent that it floats in water [like a fish]. When it is cut into it greases the surface of the knife, especially if this be warmed.”

Re: The organ is soft and tears very readily beneath the pressure of the finger.

A tight belt is enough to cause hepatic damage to a living liver.

Saturated fat won’t go rancid on your shelf, and won’t go rancid when stored inside your body.

Unsaturated fat — especially the omega-3 fatty acids — WILL go rancid on your shelf, and WILL go rancid when stored inside your body.

<>

DHA? Isn’t that the stuff that builds the brain?

It SWELLS the brain.

Ray Peat (“The Great Fish Oil Experiment,” 2006-2016) wrote …

“The products of PUFA decomposition include acrolein, malondialdehyde, hydroxynonenal, crotonaldehyde, ethane, pentane, and the neuroprostanes, which are prostaglandin-like molecules formed from [—>] DHA [<—] by free radical lipid peroxidation products, especially in the brain and at a higher level in Alzheimer’s disease.”

    Edward Abbey wrote that desert people (“the Bedouin, the Kazaks and Kurds, the Mongols, the Apaches, the Kalahari, the Aborigines of Australia”) are the healthiest humans on Earth, healthier than ocean and mountain people, and much healthier than plains and city people.

    Must have been all that seafood lying in the middle of the desert that made ’em so big and strong.

    Kalahari Desert Kelp, anyone?

      Hello Atom! Are the healthiest humans on Earth (the Bedouin, the Kazaks and Kurds, the Mongols, the Apaches, the Kalahari, the Aborigines of Australia) also those with the longest lifespans? Is the “Blue Zone” report accurate, or is there a more reliable list of the truly longest lived peoples on the planet? Is there deliberate misinformation going on by groups with economic interests in this subject?

        The AVERAGE lifespan of the Bedouin was once over 100 years.

        Other groups would have been much longer-lived if it hadn’t been for spears, arrows, swords, daggers, etc.

        Excess Qi is just as much a problem as deficient Qi.

        The list is out of date (invalidating the “restricted gene flow” theory “explaining” Okinawan centenarians).

        Like rust, the boys — Doug & Mel — never sleep.

      What ‘fats’ did these people eat?

        Organ fats (brain, heart, thyroid, eyes, etc.) need to be highly saturated to function.

        Also, inland plants have better sugar ratios, making for better lipogenesis.

    Re: If I can’t get my DHA from fish oil, can I get it from krill oil? Or algae?

    That’s like asking, “If I can’t get my lead from leaded paint, can I get it from leaded gasoline or from licking lead fishing lures?”

    Whether it’s in paint, gasoline, bullets, Chinese herbs, or older housing, lead is lead is lead is lead.

    And a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.

    And DHA is DHA is DHA is DHA.

      What about eating marine plants? – kelp, dulse, etc., etc. rich in various minerals (incl. iodine).
      [Not over-eating, just having them from time to time OR sprinkling dry kelp and dulse…everywhere.]

      Sardines? Wild salmon? :)

        Kelp, dulse, nori, spirulina, etc. (in moderation) are OK at night.

        One kelp tablet contains enough iodine for an entire day.

        Not being a fan of tablets and capsules, I prefer to sprinkle on my kelp and dulse.

        Vibrant Gal and I get a significant amount of our iodine from the sea — simply by inhaling.

        The bigger the waves and the stronger the winds, the more iodine. :)

          Totally agree about breathing the iodine, Atom!!!
          At the same time, even if breathing it (some) people may still have their challenges with thyroid function/s.

          Personally, spirulina (the one that I am using – really, really good and pure one) tends to keep me ‘awake’ and …gently energized (in the best possible ways.) So, I tend to take it (just one capsule) in the morning or until 2-3p.m. Also love adding it sometimes to my green salads at lunch; or, of course, in smoothies, etc. but strictly until early, mid-afternoon, unless I do want to stay up all night :) – one of the foods among the 20%, or less, of 80/20 that I may be doing ‘out of time’, most or all of the time. :)

            Most people need more than aerosol iodine.

            Anyone living within several hundred miles of an ocean shoreline will have no iodine deficiency — unless they overeat goitrogens.

            Spirulina is an asset to anyone living hundreds of miles away from a sea or ocean.

            Besides iodine, it also contains many other health-promoting nutrients.

            Moderation in all things. :)
