  • Palmitic acid has huge negative health impacts?

    So i read "Palmitic acid has the highest amount of negative health effects apart from trans fat". Considering this is the most common saturated fatty acid found in meat and dairy, i can't imagine this is tue otherwise eating a high saturated fat diet would be bad. Considering that the heart prefers to run on palmitic acid i suspect this is nonsense, any thoughts?

      That's right, we've evolved to store excess energy in a toxic form. Really?
      Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

      Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

            I don't need to, i know that saturated fat has no connection at all.

              YOU know that, but apparently the author of what you read didn't know that.
              Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                  I think I saw it on my Medscape notices. It was a CW peer reviewed study ... For what THAT's worth! Har har..

                    yea true. I think the theory is that palmitic acid raises cholesterol, which we all know is harmless, and that it was thought to be inflammatory, but only when eaten in isolation (i.e. without other fatty acids which always accompany it). So it looks to be fine if those are the supposed negative health implications.

                      Yeah, when I asked where you got the quote it was not to put you on the spot. I'm sure somebody said it somewhere, but I was interested in reading the context and their particular reasoning is all.
