Peter at Hyperlipid clarifies what the actual issue is. Apparently you need to have both oleic acid (highly prevalent wherever there is palmitic acid in nature) in the blood stream at the same time or it causes an inflammatory cascade and pathological insulin resistance, but if you do (like you always do) then it doesn't. http://high-fat-nutrition.blogspot.c...ever-ends.html Obvious reductionism.
So put away those bricks of isolated palmitate!
