The synthetic antioxidants, aldehydes, peroxides and hydroperoxides in processed oils is what causes inflammation. Would be great if Paleo followers would stop regurgitating nonsense. Especially the Omega ratio nonsense that has absolutely... (more)

Several years ago I was having terrible mood swings around the time of my period. One minute I'd be snapping your head off and the next I'd burst into tears. Evening primrose oil cured me within the space of a few weeks. So, if you need it, it... (more)

Other than walking in and asking over and over, anyone know of restaurant chains that cook with fat/butter instead of poison?

In the initial part of the Omega-6 metabolic pathway, you go from LA to GLA to DGLA.     The steps after DGLA involve AA.    The LA through DGLA are generally anti-inflammatory, whereas the AA steps and beyond are... (more)

Are berries amed nuts necessary to include in ones diet? Or can I stick to eating just eggs, meat, fish, vegetables, avocado and coconut oil + omega 3-oil?

No reason to exclude and many reasons to include nuts and many seeds unless you will go through an autoimmune elimination period. Consume some variety of available berries also, IMO. Avocado will give you most of the tocopherols you get... (more)

Asprey says stay away from Omega-6 acids, but I find that coconut, eggs, and avocado are all sources. Can anybody clear this up for me? Sorry if it's common sense I'm just overlooking. If you just want to debate Bulletproof please don't bother.... (more)

When your diet mainly consists of grain fed meats containing omega 6, what can you do to counteract the effects and add enough omega 3's to make a healthy ratio?
