Big Food has a lot to answer for.
Mmmmmm, bleeding vegetable oils.
Trans fats—on their way to being largely phased out of food—had the most significant adverse impact on health. Every 2% higher intake of trans fat was associated with a 16% higher chance of premature death during the study period.
That’s a big deal.
Higher consumption of saturated fats was also linked with greater mortality risk. When compared with the same number of calories from carbohydrate, every 5% increase in saturated fat intake was associated with an 8% higher risk of overall mortality.
That’s practically insignificant proportionally, especially since the method painstakingly avoid citing animal source or non-animal sourced fats. Too vague.
Conversely, intake of high amounts of unsaturated fats—both polyunsaturated and monounsaturated—was associated with between 11% and 19% lower overall mortality compared with the same number of calories from carbohydrates.
You cannot compare to sick Americans as your control population. No.
They don’t want people learning how to be really healthy. It would show up on their data more. You need half a century of plant propaganda to convince people our declining health is good for us.
Among the polyunsaturated fats, both omega-6, found in most plant oils, and omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish and soy and canola oils, were associated with lower risk of premature death.
The Western diet is toxic purely because there’s too much omega 6, a deadly excess.
The lifespan of India also suggests avoiding animal products is…. ill-advised.
People who replaced saturated fats with carbohydrates had only slightly lower mortality risk.
eat your GMO grains, you’ll live longer
“Our study shows the importance of eliminating trans fat and replacing saturated fat with unsaturated fats, including both omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. In practice, this can be achieved by replacing animal fats with a variety of liquid vegetable oils,” said senior author Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard Chan School and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.
An Asian at Chan school.
Looking as Asia’s meat consumption, you are lying.

Despite global promises to reduce over the past few years.
Maybe I’ll do a whole post.
The only confirmed finding is lab grown shit is toxic.
As of June 18 of this year, trans fats have been officially banned from all manufactured foods.
Research in the 1990s found a strong link between trans fats, also known as “partially hydrogenated oil,” and heart disease.
You are what you eat.
In addition, more and more studies are finding that trans fats cause cellular destruction in the brain and can adversely impact hormone production, memory and increase inflammation by suppressing the production of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Actively suppresses omega 3.
Now, our brains do need fat to function. In fact, the brain relies on natural, healthy fats to maintain cell membranes, keep brain inflammation at bay and transport fat soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E and K. Focus on getting your daily doses of fat from olive oil, coconut oil, nuts, seeds and avocado.
A study of almost 3000 people in 2017 reported a link between artificial sugar consumption and an increased risk of stroke and dementia. In the study, those participants that reported having just one diet beverage a day were three times more likely to develop dementia or suffer from a stroke. Although more research is needed, the findings are alarming.
Aspartame, one of the most commonly used artificial sweeteners in foods and beverages, has also been shown to cause neurodegeneration, mood imbalances and potentially cause brain cells to kill themselves. Instead of artificial sweeteners, use small amounts of natural sugar, such as raw honey, pure maple syrup or dates.
Yeah it also tastes like death.
A literal neurotoxin.
A study of 550 men and women over 30 years published in The BMJ found that even moderate drinking, which they defined as about 6-9 drinks a week, can damage the brain, including hippocampal atrophy.
Anyone that has had a few drinks knows that alcohol can impair judgement, balance, speech and even memory. Many studies have shown that long term heavy drinking can create serious and persistent changes in brain function that include mental confusion, eye nerve paralysis and difficulty with muscle coordination.
Drunkenness is just a form of brain damage that becomes more persistent with chronic alcoholism.
Until they never ‘sober up’ – clear the toxin, ever again.
Let the brain shrinkage vegans eat their fake flesh.
Trans fatty acids (TFA) are produced either by hydrogenation of unsaturated oils or by biohydrogenation in the stomach of ruminant animals. Vanaspati ghee and margarine have high contents of TFA. A number of studies have shown an association of TFA consumption and increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). This increased risk is because TFA increase the ratio of LDL cholesterol to HDL cholesterol. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and World Health Organization have come up with the recommendation that the contents of TFA in human dietary fat should be reduced to less than 4%. There is high prevalence of CVD in Pakistan. High consumption of vanaspati ghee which contains 14.2-34.3% of TFA could be one of the factors for this increased burden of CVD in Pakistan. Consumption of dietary fat low in TFA would be helpful in reducing the risk of CVD in South Asia. Denmark by banning the sale of food items with TFA has brought down the number of deaths due to coronary heart disease by nearly 50% over a period of 20 years. Public awareness about the adverse effects of TFA on human health would be extremely important. Media can play a very effective role in educating the masses and advocating the policy for the sale of only low TFA food items.
It merits legal banning.
A third pattern characterized by high trans fat was associated with less favorable cognitive function and less total cerebral brain volume.
Participants with higher plasma trans fat scores had worse cognitive function overall (memory, attention, language, processing speed, and global).
Each 1-SD increase in the trans fat score associated with a 0.30-SD decrease in global cognitive score.
You sure showed us!
They’re literally retarding themselves.
The high trans fat pattern was consistently associated with worse cognitive performance and less TCBV. Linolelaidic acid is predominantly found in bakery foods such as cookies, doughnuts, cakes, pastries, and pies.27
I’d rather eat a donut than fake oozing flesh.
These foods are often prepared with hydrogenated vegetable oils to allow for a long shelf life. Higher trans fatty acid intake increases cardiovascular risk, systemic inflammation, and endothelial dysfunction, all of which may explain an association with cognition.37,38 Unfortunately, very few studies have assessed trans fat and risk for cognitive decline.26
Big Food funding PACs?
Simple, scan vegan brains and see if they’re atrophied.
Trans fat may aggravate cognitive function independently and jointly through interaction with other dietary factors.e11 Trans fat may displace DHA in neuronal membranes, but apparently does not impact the neuropathologic Alzheimer hallmarks in mice.39The consistency of the association of plasma trans fat with poorer cognitive function and more brain atrophy suggests neurologic consequences in humans, but these findings need to be confirmed.
The European Food Safety Authority issued a report last year warning consumers about the high levels of potentially carcinogenic contaminants in palm oil (an ingredient used in Kit Kat Bars, Nutella, and Cheez-Its, among other treats) when refined at temperatures above 392°F.
With caveats inherent for ecologic, nutrient disappearance analyses, a healthy dietary allowance for n-3 LCFAs for current US diets was estimated at 3.5 g/d for a 2000-kcal diet. This allowance for n-3 LCFAs can likely be reduced to one-tenth of that amount by consuming fewer n-6 fats.
JUST STOP EATING PROCESSED CRAP.
It’ll cost more in hospital bills.
