Seed Oils, Plant Based Diets & Chronic Inflammation (New Study)
A new study finds vegan dieters have higher concentrations of omega-6 fatty acids and lower quantities of health-promoting omega-3 fatty acids, including pro-resolving lipid mediators, in their cell membranes when compared to omnivores. Resolvins are bioactive lipids made from dietary omega-3 fatty acids that help resolve inflammation. Resolvins were not detected in the plasma of any vegan subjects, whereas nine out of twenty-four omnivores had detectable concentrations. These new findings have important implications for heart, brain and prenatal health.

Refined Carbs Clog Your Arteries: High Triglycerides Worse Than LDL-Cholesterol
After years of intensive LDL-lowering therapies heart disease is still the leading cause of death, claiming over 600,000 lives annually in the USA alone. It's time to focus more on triglycerides and metabolic health.
