Foods High in Linoleic Acid 2022

Linoleic acid is a type of fat, or fatty acid, found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and animal products. An essential omega-6 fatty acid, linoleic acid is required by the human body in small amounts. Too much, however, can be detrimental to your health. Consumers of a standard American diet are much more likely to get too much linoleic acid than too little. The majority of Americans might be misled by official health recommendations to eat “healthy” vegetable oils. Even the term “vegetable oil” is misleading because it gives you the impression that you are receiving vegetable micronutrients when these oils are actually highly toxic, industrially-processed seed oils. Seed oils are some of the most dangerous items you could eat. This is even more of an issue today as the high amounts of oxidative stress these oils cause seriously impair your immune system and radically increase your risk of all infections including COVID-19.   What Is Linoleic Acid?  Linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated

CoQ10 May Help Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, Atrial Fibrillation and Other Chronic Diseases

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is the third-most consumed supplement, 1  yet many people don't realize how clinically effective it really is. Although it’s not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a treatment or preventative drug, several new studies show that taking CoQ10 supplements may help address several chronic health conditions, including atrial fibrillation (AFib), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), insulin resistance, heart failure, cancer and migraines, to name a few. Ubiquinol — the reduced, electron-rich form of CoQ10 that your body produces naturally — plays an important role in the electron transport chain of your mitochondria, where it facilitates the conversion of energy substrates and oxygen into the biological energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP) needed by your cells for life, repair and regeneration. It’s a fat-soluble antioxidant, meaning it works in the fat portions of your body, such as your cell membranes, where it mops

Plant-Based Diet 101: What You Need to Know (2022)

The phrase "plant-based diet" is being tossed around a lot these days. The Skeptical Cardiologist never knows what people mean when they use it and so must assume that most of the world is also puzzled by this trendy term. For some, a "plant-based diet" is what vegans eat. Veganism combines a diet free of animal products with a moral philosophy that rejects the "commodity status of animals." Vegans are the strictest of vegetarians, eschewing milk, fish, and eggs. One plant-based diet advocate in the introduction to a  special issue of the  Journal of Geriatric Cardiology  wrote that "a plant-based diet consists of all minimally processed fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds, herbs, and spices and excludes all animal products, including red meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products." You will notice that this cardiologist "excludes all animal products" and that the qualifying phrase "minimally processed"
