Let's set the record straight on what IS healthy and what is NOT
because some of you have not been updated and are still following
advice from manufacturers' invested interests and medicos'
cholesterol scare-campaigns. Those who are updated should find
this post interesting as well.
Some of you out there need to have doubts about your doubts!
A moderate amount of Omega 6 found in Healthy Oils like Pumpkin Seed Oil, Flaxseed oil (18:57 ratio) Almond Oil (70% Mono - 17% Omega 6) Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Mostly Mono 76%) and Avocado Oil
(71% Mono - 14% Omega 6 – 14% Omega 3) Macadamia (Mostly Mono 80%)
A reasonable amount of Omega 6 Helps to Reduce Nerve Pain - Fights Inflammation - Treats Rheumatoid Arthritis but excess Omega 6 like Sunflower Oil (71:16 ratio Trans Fats) Corn Oil (57:29 ratio Trans Fats - GMO) Soy Oil (Toxic Trans Fats - GMO) Safflower (Damaged Trans Fats) Palm Oil (Most are Toxic)
Excessive Omega 6 from Unhealthy Polyunsaturated Oils
Cause Inflammation and Nerve Pain, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Blood Clots, Heart Attacks and Stroke, Overweight and Obesity, Fluid Retention and Depression.
Sunflower, Corn, Soybean and Cottonseed oils are, by far, the worst.
Avoid these like the plague.
Coconut Oil (Short-Chain Saturated)
It is the Long-Chain Saturated Fat we should be sparing with such as Animal Fat from barbecues and fried meats…..excessive use of cream and cheese and Greek yoghurt. That has nothing to do with the composition of Coconuts. And they were actually vilified by the Veggie Oil Industry for unfair profit that is exponential since that time. They are notorious for foistering false and misleading information on us, the unsuspecting public, I often refer to as Marketing PLOYS.
Coconut Oil and Coconut Milk are a different story, because they have a totally different type of saturated fat that is classified as Short-Chain which is different in nature, like the contrast of Omega 3 to Omega 6.
Studies done in 2004 took coconut oil and placed it in a drink given to Alhzeimer’s patients and observed significant increase in levels of ketones which translated to improved memory. Clearly, that is not the case with excess
Long-Chain Fat Foods referred to above.
A sensible amount of Nuts and Avocados are reputed to being very beneficial to our health – in moderation – and SO IS Coconut! Notice, none of these are animal-products? Those are the Saturated Fats that affect our health poorly when unchecked (the amount we have). Did you hear Atkins died on the High-Fat Diet he was promoting world-wide? I wonder how many of his unsuspecting fans went that way.
No, Coconut Oil and Coconut Butter (do not confuse with copha) have a good influence on our health – they’re favorably Good for Our Brain.
A small amount of Grass-Fed Dairy Butter has a unique property of CLA
that actually benefits our health in moderate amounts.
The Polyunsaturates Industry Deliberately Likes To Mislead People
Like the Agriculture industry, Cane Sugar and Synthetic Sugar industries, MSG and GMO industries, they have led many innocent people astray in their Choices of Foods when shopping and dining out – especially in Fast-Food outlets.
Multi-Billion Food Giants compete for our dollar with all manner of enticements and all manner of excuses for the plethora of toxic chemicals they use for this and that, and most of us believe them, but many do not anymore – increasingly, people are waking up!
Did you know that a reasonable amount of Polyunsaturates in healthy food staples benefit our health but polyunsaturated Oils DO NOT?
Leaness Lifestyle University Reports: Macadamia nuts are very low in polyunsaturated fats and are therefore less susceptible to oxidation and rancidity. Of any seed or nut, macadamia nuts have the lowest omega-6 concentration. Macadamia nuts are higher in healthy monounsaturated fats than any seed or nut, even surpassing olive oil.
Industries like those mentioned above pride themselves on their ability to use skilfully crafted words when they LIE to the Public. In fact, they have Paid Scientists who have Sold their Name to lie for them – so we believe those manufacturers. Yes, they are very skilful at this and have all manner or techniques in twisting things to their gain – not ours – because the TRUTH IS that none of their products are “good for us”…… and clearly speaking, they don’t care either!
WE NEED TO RETURN TO REAL TRUTHS FROM OUR GRANDPARENTS PRIOR TO 1950’S
THEY WERE HEALTHY. WE HAVE ALL MANNER OF HEALTH MALADIES THAT DID NOT EXIST IN THEIR TIME and CANCER WAS RARE. IT’S PREVALENT NOW, HEY?
Please note: Canola is Not the answer to the problem.
Truth of the matter is that Canola is so toxic to humans and animals
and has recently been found in many to be the real culprit in heart disease and stroke.
And also Asthma and Inflammation.
According to family physician Cate Shanahan, MD, author of Deep Nutrition.
consuming too much canola oil and other refined vegetable oils results in cellulite. “We can actually see what happens when our fat is more liquid and more inflammatory [from vegetable oils including canola]. That inflammation is breaking down the supporting collagen structure. That cellulite fat, instead of having three layers of collagen support, has only two layers of collagen support.
Amyloids are complex combinations of proteins that have the potential to become pathogenic, which can lead to a variety of diseases in the human body. Amyloid-beta proteins 40 and 42 have been directly linked to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Canola oil has a direct effect on the ratio between beta amyloids 40 and 42, which ultimately results in neuron damage, memory degradation and the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

Understanding the study about saturated fat
What the study doesn’t show is the brain reliance on saturated fat to function and where to get good sources of this fatty acid. This is where coconut oil comes in with its ability to provide the brain with an alternate source of energy in Ketones.
Ketones are high energy fuels that nourish the brain. Our bodies can produce these from stored fat while fasting or in a starvation mode. They can also be produced by consuming medium chain fatty acids found in foods such as coconuts. Blanche Levine
What do Nuts and Avocados have in Common?
Nuts and Avocado often get a bad rap for Saturated-Fats, when in fact they do not contain much. They mostly contain Mono-Unsaturated Fats, a friend for life.
Sorry to say, Canola’s mono-saturates is referred to as a “Great Conola” because those
seeds are actually Toxic to mankind and so is the process in manufacturing Canola Oil!
If you’re thinking of improving your faculties – with aging or study needs – you can consider including Nuts and Avocados in your Diet – they are good for boosting brain health, if given a chance! Walnuts for instance, are considered to be a “signature food” for the brain – notice how their appearance closely resembles our brain?
Our Creator has made some pretty nifty secrets for us to discover.
“Walnuts are the top nut for brain health. They have a significantly high concentration of DHA, a type of Omega-3 fatty acid. Among other things, DHA has been shown to protect brain health in newborns, improve cognitive performance in adults, and prevent or ameliorate
age-related cognitive decline.” Here
All Nuts have (natural) Boron like Apples do that benefits our brain considerably. Please do not confuse with borax (which is highly toxic).
Regular consumption of nuts is linked to better cognitive function.
Please remember to take them in moderation.
Avocados have a good supply of Lutein, which benefits are Brain as well as our Eyes, how good is that?
One Avocado has a Surprising Effect on Your Brain
“Eating one avocado a day dramatically increases levels of a nutrient in your brain that keeps you mentally sharp.
That’s the recent finding of Tufts University researchers. They gathered 40 healthy adults ages 50 and over and tested them for lutein in their brain.
Lutein is a little-known plant nutrient that keeps brain cells healthy. It has previously been found to protect against cognitive decline. Avocados are one of the foods highest in lutein.”
Avocados are GOOD for our Heart, Brain, Liver and integrity of our Skin.
Who doesn’t need these benefits these days!?!?
Fat plays Many Vital Roles in Brain Function!
We have a fatty brain. Fat plays many vital roles in brain function. ... A diet high in monounsaturated fats also lead to an increase in the production and release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. The KEY chemical in the brain for Memory and Concentration tasks. Psychology Today
Pumpkin Seed Oil Is Beneficial
To Our Health
Lipids found in pumpkin oil will help you, here is how they contribute.They will assist the transportation of nutrients and vitamins throughout the body. They will offer essential protection to your vital organs, including insulating the body and controlling its internal temperature. They help you renew your blood cells, skin cells, muscles, and nerves. They will also help break down unwanted cholesterol, improve your digestion and are a source of precious energy.
The pumpkin seed extract will also contain essential fatty acids, so important to a wide number of processes inside your body. These fatty acids fight against signs of aging because they keep your tissues young, supple and help cell renewal. This applies to the skin and other types of tissues in the body. The acids help in oxygen transportation and support the integrity of cells.
Nervous About Oils in Your Diet? Don’t be!
As the saying goes “we need Healthy Fats to fight fat.” And we need Good Healthy Cholesterol (not sabotaged, because Statins kill both LDL and HDL. It’s just a matter of knowing what the real culprits are (cheap nasty Veggie Oils and Canola that have mistakingly replaced our grandparent’s Grass-Fed Butter and Olive Oil and Coconut Oil. This misinformation all started deliberately by the Manufacturers of Margarine and Poly-Unsaturates that are actually damaging people’s health!
Besides, the fat concentration in pumpkin seed oil is only about 30 – 50 %. Pistachios also have a low ratio of fat.
True Facts You Need To Know
What’s to stop you from having a few benefits? Considering our Heart, Brain and Nerve Cells actually need some Good Healthy Fats to PROTECT THEM according to all the Latest
True Research in relation to Heart Health/ Heart Attacks reveal: Excess Stress (unmanaged) can kill, Statin Drugs can, and so can No-Fat Low-Fat Diets. One of the most common causes of Heart Attacks is Toxic Overload that affects the Heart and the other, believe it or not, is Statins and No-Fat Low-Fat Diets that Strip the Protective Cholesterol from our Heart, leaving it vulnerable to attacks.
WebMD says HDL Cholesterol: “The Good Cholesterol” removes harmful bad cholesterol from where it doesn't belong. High HDL levels reduce the risk for heart disease -- but low levels increase the risk.
Anxiety and Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Your brain's only protection is adequate levels of anti-inflammatory omega-3s.
A well-known Nutritionist Barry Sears stresses the urgency to have more Omega 3 in our Diets than most people have, hey? He says “Anxiety is one of most the common neurological disorders, but it also is one of the most difficult to understand” and he goes on to explain “The brain is incredibly sensitive to inflammation, not the type you can feel but the type of inflammation that is below the perception of pain. I term this cellular inflammation. What makes this type of inflammation so disruptive is that it causes a breakdown in signalling between cells. What causes cellular inflammation is an increase in the omega-6 fatty acid known as arachidonic acid (AA)” in relation to the plethora of Anxiety States that are prevalent in the world today like panic disorder and post-traumatic disorder, social anxiety and separation anxiety, OCD and phobias.
Friends, it’s all in the Diet often – the foods we eat on a regular basis – they are not always brought about by stress and relationships. But too much Omega 6 in the foods we eat, can in itself. Stress us out and affect our communications with family and friends. We see all this so prevalent around us since most of the food lines in supermarkets and take-away places are loaded with Omega 6.
Read more about this on Psychology Today
Floyd Chilton, director of Wake Forest and Brigham and Women's Center for Botanical Lipids in Winston-Salem, NC and his colleagues have conducted food trials with a number of subjects with Omega 6 and have reason to believe there is a strong correlation between excessive intake with Auto-Immune Disorders and Allergies we see so much Today.
According to Food Matters Com: Excess Omega 6 intake is a hidden culprit of Allergies and Food Intolerances in many people. “They say Over the last 100 years, changes in the Western diet have altered the consumption of Omega 6 fatty acids …..” Here These changes have been principally made by manufacturers. Why are these conditions popping up everywhere? DO BE INFORMED!
Avoid Both Extremes
So as we read earlier in this article, Omega 6 can be a good thing in our Diet but it really does need to be balanced with an intake of Omega 3. And that doesn’t mean taking
excessive doses of Fish Oil Supplements.
Because such indiscretion can potentially cause High Blood Sugar, Bleeding, Low Blood Pressure,
Diarrhea, Acid Reflux, Stroke, Weight Gain and Vitamin A Toxicity.
Strive for balance.
The secret is shown beautifully in the following words – this is just one example:
“Omega-6′s are necessary for the inflammatory process, which is an essential part of healing, as well as playing a large role in the health of our skin. Omega-3′s are essential to keep inflammation in check, and are also beneficial for cardiovascular, brain, eye, and joint health as well as innumerable other benefits.” Here
We have been reading about these great assets to health – which ones are you going to place in your grocery bag on your next shopping trip?
