The Emperor’s New Oils
Re: Why so much emphasis on oils in general?
Fate? Fortune? Destiny? Karma?
I heard Ray Peat mention Yellow Fat Disease several times, and decided to find out what it was in December, 2016.
Little did I suspect it would lead to eight e-books and now I’m halfway through a ninth.
The Omega 3 Deception is so full of holes and loose ends, it boggles the imagination that it exists at all.
I feel like the kid in The Emperor’s New Clothes who yelled out, “But he isn’t wearing anything at all!”
More than 99% of the “experts” on the planet (mainstream and alternative) believe polyunsaturated fatty acids are “essential,” when clearly they are not.
They shut down the thyroid, liver, and heart, and are mostly used for chemical warfare by plants.
Rooted organisms can’t run away from plant predators, but they can manufacture weapons of mass extermination.
Ray Peat (“Oils in Context,” 2006) wrote …
“An oil researcher spent 100 days eating what he considered to be the ‘Eskimo diet,’ seal blubber and mackerel paste. He observed that his blood lipid peroxides (measured as malondialdehyde, MDA) reached a level 50 times higher than normal, and although MDA is teratogenic, he said he wasn’t worried about fathering deformed children, because his sperm count had gone to zero. Evidently, he didn’t have a very thorough understanding of the Eskimo way.”

“Since the breath yields much more oxygen in winter than in summer, yet can combine with only a fixed amount of carbon, we need to eat more food containing carbon the colder the weather; hence we all notice that our appetite is better in cold weather, and we relish the carbonized food, such as fat, which is four-fifths carbon, as are also butter, honey, various oils, nuts and the like. Hence the Esquimaux can drink gallons of train oil [whale oil] and eat twenty or more pounds of meat per day, and fourteen pounds of candles at a meal without injury; indeed they cannot live without an immense amount of carbon.”
