I occasionally use apricot kernal oil topically. Am I absorbing the omega-6's, and if so, how bad is it? I love coconut oil, but it is pricey, so I use the cheaper oil for non-cooking purposes. Thanks in advance.

Certain fatty acids are absorbed through the skin, yes. fatty acids absorbed in this way would be unlikely to cause inflammation like consuming an o6 heavy food or oil might.

I'm starting to think that the answer to the "is it paleo?" question is generally the same answer as the question "would you eat it if you made it yourself?" I'm sure there are exceptions, but in general, if the answer to the the second question... (more)

I have been reading some paleo cookbooks that use sesame seed oil in their recipes for asian flavor. (thats what they call it anyway). I am wondering if this is something to stay away from? or if it is ok to use. If it IS something to stay away... (more)

Pretty much all the market "High Omega 3 Eggs" are produced by feeding the chickens flax seed meal. I think it's well known that the omega 3 from flax is absorbed poorly by our body and is inferior to fish oil in every aspect. So is there some... (more)

Recent studies suggest that in order for an egg to have an omega 6:omega 3 ratio close to the 2:1 that is thought to be favourable according to Paleolithic principles, the hen producing the egg would require a special feed beyond that of simply... (more)

Very naive question; I feel stoopid because after all this time I should know this and it's difficult for me to find an answer on the Interwebs: Are seeds grains? If the answer to that is "sometimes", then my follow-up question is: what is the... (more)

Minimize its consumption. It's a seed, it's going to be high in PUFAs, and not the good ones.

As far as plants go and I would guess seeds along with it, it's from the Apiaceae family which is the same as carrots and parsley, so the plant itself is very paleo. The seeds probably have less anti nutrients than most other plant seeds. Good... (more)

I think grains get more attention because many get a fairly immediate negative effect (bloating, gas, etc) where as a lot of the negative impact from seed oils is likely more long-term and/or harder to directly link to seed oil consumption.
