PUFA Dangers Part 3: The brain

Medical institutions, as well as common research, will teach you that PUFAs are highly essential for brain function, mainly because they are found in such high concentrations within the brain. To assume that PUFAs are essential because they are found in such high concentrations in the brain, is like assuming that because tics are so…

PUFA dangers Part 2: Lipid peroxidation and prostaglandins

So now lets get to the part about why PUFAs are so bad. PUFA dangers The predominant omega 6 fatty acid is arachidonic acid (AA), which can be reduced (i) via enzymatic peroxidation to prostaglandins, leukotrienes, thromboxanes, and other cyclooxygenase, lipoxygenase or cytochrome P-450 derived products or (ii) via nonenzymatic peroxidation to MDA, 4-HNE, isoprostanes, and other lipid…
