Cholesterol and Good Health

Fascinating podcast about roles of fats in the American diet, and how they contribute to health or disease, specially looking at saturated fats typically found in meats and natural food, and unsaturated fats common in out contemporary diets, found in vegetable oils…. and how these impact cholesterol, and how their impact on mortality.

Essentially: lower cholesterol = increased mortality

Linoleic acid found in high concentrations of vegetable oils is toxic.

Linoleic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid

Cholesterol is the fundamental building block of all hormone production in the body

More cholesterol ends up increasing longevity

More thoughts later…
