A common thing around here seems to be avoidance of polyunsaturated fatty acids. This is a pretty strong theme in Ray Peat's writing. My question is about how far this should go when applied to children.
Given that the brain contains a large amount of the essential fatty acids (something like 25% by weight I believe), is there a potential risk that a diet seeking to minimize PUFA's in the diet may cause impaired brain development in children by not providing enough for the development of brain cell membranes?
If you do have children, would you worry about the PUFA content of their diet being too low if they got the majority of their fats from pastured ruminants and coconut oil?
Thanks for your answers, y'all.
