Yellow Fat Disease = Aging (& Age Spots)


By Atom Bergstrom

Atom’s Blog


Yellow Fat Disease and aging are nearly synonymous.

“Age spots” on the skin mean aging is winning.

They’re not called “age spots” for nothing.

“Age spots” are the tip of the iceberg.

According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine …

“Lipofuscin is found in heart muscle and smooth muscles and is also called the aging pigment.”

According to Wikipedia (sometimes this self-proclaimed encyclopedia is actually accurate) …

“It [lipofuscin] is considered to be one of the aging or ‘wear-and-tear’ pigments, found in the liver, kidney, heart muscle, retina, adrenals, nerve cells, and ganglion cells.”

Lipofuscin isn’t really a “wear-and-tear” pigment — it’s caused by HUFAs and PUFAs, not working out at the gym or jogging at the beach.

HUFAs are highly-unsaturated fatty acids — or in straight-talking plain English, highly peroxidizable, age-spot producing fatty acids.

HUFAs — also called long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs) — include docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).

But aren’t these omega-3 oils supposed to be good for you?

Doug and Mel and an army of holistic health gurus, like Drs. Oz and Weil, say so.

Well, then it MUST be true.

The Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the American Heart Association, and the American Dietetic Association advise eating two eight-ounce servings of fish every week to get them.

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

“In declaring EPA and DHA to be safe, the FDA neglected to evaluate their antithyroid, immunosuppressive, lipid peroxidative (Song et al., 2000), light sensitizing, and antimitochondrial effects, their depression of glucose oxidation (Delarue et al., 2003), and their contribution to metastatic cancer (Klieveri, et al., 2000), lipofuscinosis and liver damage, among other problems.”

Anyone praising the virtues of DHA and EPA has to consider the Elephant In the Living Room — Yellow Fat Disease.

DHA and EPA = Yellow Fat Disease and its tag-along afflictions of White Muscle Disease, Mulberry Heart Disease, Brown Atrophy of the Heart, Brown Atrophy of the Liver, Hepatosis Dietetica, Nutritional Muscular Dystrophy, Progressive Lipofuscinosis, etc.

Again, “age spots” are just the tip of the iceberg, and if you don’t cleanse them out of your body, you’re in for a rude awakening.

      It’s claimed by mainstream medical “experts” that age spots “can’t be cured, but treatment may help.”

      Age spots CAN be cured.–e-books.php

      Re: “One likely target for DHA action is at the cell membrane where the fatty acid is known to readily incorporate into membrane phospholipids.”

      But what if there is no membrane?

      Check out Gilbert Ling.

      Hi Atom
      Whats your opinion on emu oil and considering its omega 3 content?


      • April 10, 2016 @ 2:26 pm Atom

        The virtues of emu oil depend on what a specific emu ate and how its oil was refined and by what biotechnology company.

        Emu oil varies greatly in color, saturation, refinement, and processing (bleaching and deodorization).

        Emu oil is supposed to closely resemble cottonseed oil, but the oil varies greatly enough to make that a misstatement.

        Emus are also subject to Yellow Fat Disease and related syndromes like encephalomalacia.

        “Grade A” emu oil is also called “fully refined emu oil,” which makes me wonder about what remains of the original bird fat.

        Know the Source and Follow the Money.

        Emu Oil has virtually no Omega 3 content. will provide you with a complete analysis of their oil. They own one of the largest and most advanced labs in the country. Paul is a former president of the American Emu Association.

          Re: Emu Oil has virtually no Omega 3 content.

          Thanks for the link, Janet!

          1 to 2 percent of omega-3 fatty acids is pretty much the same as olive oil, and that’s about as good as it gets. :)

          Other companies are actually bragging about the omega-3 oil in their emu oil, which either makes them fibbers or they’re feeding fish or flax to their birds.
