THE UGLY TRUTH ABOUT VEGETABLE OILS

The Coronary Heart Disease Epidemic: Possible Culprits

What could have contributed to the epidemic of heart attacks that began in the 1920’s and 1930’s in the U.S. and U.K., and continues today. smoking, appeared to be a major player, but even smoking is clearly trumped by yet another factor or combination of factors, judging by the unusually low incidence of heart attacks in France, Japan.One of the major changes in diet that has not mentioned  is the rise of industrial liquid vegetable oils over the course of the 20th century. In the U.S. in 1900, the primary cooking fats were lard, beef tallow and butter. The following data only include cooking fats and spreads, because the USDA does not track the fats that naturally occur in milk and meat:Animal fat is off the hook.This is the type of information that makes mainstream nutrition advice ring hollow. Let’s see what happened to industrial vegetable oils in the early 1900’s.

Now remember that all corn oil is also genetically modified and made in a lab, which is not the way humans are suppose to consume foods. Humans are suppose to eat foods that are 100% natural and naturally grown.

Scientifically made foods such as corn, soy, cottonseed and some wheat’s are extremely dangerous to your health, and yes that means corn on the cob, shoe-peg corn, pop corn, corn oils ..any kind of corn is now made into franken-corn, soy sauce…please read all your labels for safety reasons.

I do believe we’re getting warmer. Now let’s consider the composition of traditional American animal fats and industrial vegetable oils:

It’s not hard to see that the two classes of fats (animal and industrial vegetable) are quite different. Animal fats are more saturated (blue). However, the biggest difference is that industrial vegetable oils contain a massive amount of omega-6 (yellow), far more than animal fats. If you accept the concept that humans evolved eating primarily animal fats, which is well supported by the archaeological and anthropological literature, then you can begin to see the nature of the problem.

Omega-6 and omega-3 fats are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are precursors to a very important class of signaling molecules called eicosanoids, which has something to do with virtually every bodily process. Omega-6 and omega-3 fats compete with one another for the enzymes (desaturases and elongases) that convert them into eicosanoid precursors. Omega-6-derived eicosanoids and omega-3-derived eicosanoids have different functions. Therefore, the balance of omega-6 to omega-3 fats in the diet influences the function of the body on virtually every level. Omega-6 eicosanoids tend to be more inflammatory and causes inflammation in the body.

What’s better understood is the fact that our current omega-6 consumption is well outside of our ecological road map.  In other words, we evolved in an environment that did not provide large amounts of omega-6 all year round.      Industrial vegetable oils are a product of food processing techniques that have been widespread for about 100 years, not enough time for even the slightest genetic adaptation. Our current level of omega-6 intake, and our current balance between omega-6 and omega-3, are therefore unnatural and can lead to many health complications down the road.

The ideal ratio is probably very roughly 2:1 omega-6:omega-3. Leaf lard is 6.8, beef tallow is 2.4, good quality butter is 1.4, corn oil is 45, cottonseed oil is 260. It’s clear that a large qualitative change in our fat consumption occurred over the course of the 20th century.

This was a major factor in the rise of heart attacks from an obscure condition to the primary cause of death.

RSMC Tokyo – Typhoon Center will assign a tropical cyclone a name from the list followed by a 4-digit identification number (in brackets). Names on the list will only be given to tropical cyclones of tropical storm strength or above.These names are used sequentially. That is, if the last storm of the year is Cimaron, the first storm of the next year is Jebi.

The name of a new tropical cyclone is usually selected from this list of names. If a named cyclone moves into the Australian region from another country’s zone of responsibility, the name assigned by that other country will be retained. The names are normally chosen in sequence, when the list is exhausted, we return to the start of the list.

Lists A, B, C, and D are used sequentially one after the other. The first name in any given year is the one immediately following the last name from the previous year. List E is a list of replacement names if they become necessary. Wellington TCWC will name the cyclone, in consultation with RSMC Nadi, by using the next name from RSMC Nadi’s list, if a tropical cyclone in the Wellington TCWC’s area of responsibility, Wellington.
