Aging, Ionic Radiation, & Fatty Acids
What do aging, ionic radiation, and the fatty acids in fish oils have in common?
All three drive cholesterol out of the cells and tissues, and into the blood.
Mr. Cholesterol’s house is in the cell and his front yard is in the tissues.
His highway is the bloodstream, but he’s not supposed to live there.
Aging, ionic radiation, and Yellow Fat Disease evict Mr. Cholesterol from his home and property.
Homelessness makes him vengeful.

“The changes in lipidic balance related to age have been made the object of an extensive study which also sought to determine the role of lipids in aging processes. A general predominance of positive lipids, more manifest in the cellular and tissue levels than in the blood, was seen in youth. This would be expected in view of the special metabolic influence exerted by this group of lipids. The anoxybiotic [life without oxygen] character of metabolism induced by sterols results in the intervention of dehydrogenases which lead to an abundance of hydrogen ions. This, in turn, leads to a predominance of the kind of syntheses which favor anabolism. Growth thus could be related to the predominance of lipids with positive polar groups, especially sterols [including cholesterol].”
“Aging processes, on the contrary, could be related to a predominance of lipids with negative polar groups, especially fatty acids. This predominance could be found especially at the cellular level, as seen in cultures of tetrahymena [ciliate protozoans used in lab research]. In complex organisms or in rats in which an increase in the proportion of fatty acids at the cellular level is present, an opposite change occurs at the systemic and even at the organic level. There is an excess of cholesterol, this time limited to the higher levels, as revealed through analyses of blood, for instance. Changes in the blood vessels are related in part to this excess of sterols at the systemic level. Many manifestations have confirmed such an offbalance with sterol predominance at higher levels. For example, we found the urine surface tension abnormally high in old age. Similarly, skin wheal absorption in old people requires more than 90 minutes for completion as against approximately 20 minutes in middle-aged adults. A predominance of fatty acids at lower levels and of sterols at higher levels would thus characterize the changes in lipidic balance related to old age.”
It’s not well known that …
Acidity fosters youth, and alkalinity fosters age.
It’s even less well known that …
Excess acidity creates excess alkalinity as a defense, and excess alkalinity creates excess acidity as a defense.
It’s called IMMUNE MODULATION.
Without immunity, the little circles in the teardrop-shaped halves of the Yin-Yang circle don’t function.
True acid-base values involve seven tests …
1) blood cell potassium
2) blood serum potassium
3) total blood potassium
4) urine pH
5) urine specific gravity
6) urine surface tension
7) nasal pH
Testing your saliva and urine with pH strips tells you almost nothing about systemic acid-base status.
