How Do We Maximize Cellular Oxygenation?

This is the million dollar question and today we have the answer. I know what

many of you are likely thinking, “I exercise a lot; therefore, I am oxygenating

my blood. I’ve got cancer beat!” No. All that exercise didn’t stop world-champion

cyclist Lance Armstrong from contracting cancer. It is true that by exercising

you are increasing oxygenation to your blood. However, by doing so you

still haven’t guaranteed that this oxygen will be transferred effectively to each

cell in each organ in your body. Dr. Warburg made it quite clear that oxygen

alone is NOT sufficient:34 “…To be sure, cancer development takes place even

in the presence of free oxygen gas in the atmosphere, but this oxygen may not

penetrate in sufficient quantity into the growing body cells, or the respiratory

apo-enzymes of the growing body cells may not be saturated with the active

groups.” There are many factors that promote the lack of cellular oxygen,

including certain deficiencies we will talk about shortly. Exercise, by itself,

is therefore not the solution to remaining cancer-free. This is apparent when

we observe that many people who exercise regularly, including athletes,

still get cancer. Furthermore, a person breathes at least 17,000 times a

day (12 breaths a minute). Do you really think that you aren’t breathing in

enough oxygen with 17,000 breaths a day? You are. The problem lies elsewhere.

Special fats called EFAs that food processing destroys

Our bodies require special fats that make it possible, among other important

functions, for sufficient oxygen to reach the cells. These special fats are highly

oxygen-absorbing. Technically called “essential fatty acids,” or “EFAs,” these

special fats must be supplied from outside the body every day, from foods and

certain oils, because your body can’t manufacture them on its own. There are 2

“parent” forms of EFAs that allow your body to make whatever it needs from them

called EFA “derivatives.” Parent omega-6 is termed linoleic acid (LA) and parent

omega-3 (ALA) is termed alpha-linolenic acid. Next is a table of EFA-containing

oils, shown with their percentages of parent omega-6 to parent omega-3. With all

the hoopla about olive oil, I want you to know that it is not listed above because

olive oil is mainly omega-9, a non-essential oil that your body makes itself.

“Extra virgin” olive oil is traditionally unprocessed and therefore not cancer-causing;

however, it won’t protect you against contracting cancer in the least. Avoid margarine.

It won’t go bad even when left out. This is the proof of hydrogenated oil’s failure to

oxygenate. If it still could oxygenate when eaten it would turn rancid when left

unrefrigerated just like fish does.

Oil Percentage of Parent Omega-6 (linoleic acid)/Parent Omega-3

(alpha-linolenic acid)

Sunflower oil 65%:0%

Safflower oil 75%:0%

Flaxseed oil 20%:55% (about 1:3 omega-6:3—a backwards ratio)

Sesame oil 45%:0%

Pumpkin oil 43%:15% (expensive)

Evening Primrose oil 74%:0%

Borage oil 38%:0%

Corn oil 59%:0% (hard to find organic and unprocessed)

Olive oil 8%:0%

Hemp oil (Cannabis) NOT RECOMMENDED

Canola oil NOT RECOMMENDED

Soy oil NOT RECOMMENDED

Canola and soy oils are NOT recommended because neither were ever meant for human consumption. They were both meant to be used as food for farm animals or for industrial applications. Many foods, especially salad dressings, now contain canola oil. You should try to avoid it.

Nut Oil Percentage of Parent Omega-6(linoleic acid)/Parent Omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid)

Walnut oil 28%:5%

Hazelnut oil 4%:0%

Cashew oil 8%:0%

Almond oil 10%:0%

Brazil Nut oil 23%:0%

Peanut Oil 29%:0% (hard to find unprocessed)

The oils must be uncooked or at the very least only slightly heated to retain their important nutritional properties. Also bear in mind that some supplement manufacturers’ labels fail to separately identify and distinguish the parent EFAs from the EFA derivatives. It may be impossible to tell whether you are getting the parent EFAs or the EFA derivatives. Make certain of what you’re getting before you purchase it. Make sure the oils are raw, unprocessed, and organic, and they do not contain fish oil or any hydrogenated oils.

Common Derivatives of Parent Omega-6= (LA or linoleic acid)

GLA (Gamma-linolenic acid)

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)

Common Derivatives of Parent Omega-3= (ALA or alpha-linolenic acid

EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid)

DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid)

EFA Ratios in Your Body: Surprise! Parent Omega-6—Not Omega-3—is the Critical Component

We must look at the tissue content of our bodies to determine what oils contain the best anticancer EFAs. It is known from pathology studies that the brain and nervous system have a ratio of one part omega-6 to one part omega-3 (1:1). Some nutritionists suggest that this ratio is best, but they are wrong. Here’s why: Most organs contain a 4:1 omega-6 to 3 ratio. However, the brain, nervous system, and organs comprise only about 12% of body-weight. Skin is 100% parent omega-6; it contains no omega-3,35 and comprises about 4% of bodyweight. The muscles comprise at least 50% of total bodyweight and are the prime factor to account for in determining the required parent omega-6:3 ratio. A key fact about muscle structure is that muscle contains from 5.5 to 7.5 times more omega-6 than omega-3, depending on the degree of physical condition.36 We are warned of the “overdosing” of omega-6 in our diets and told that we must take lots of omega-3 containing oils to compensate. We are told that we are ingesting upwards of 20 times too much omega-6. This is wrong and there is much more to the analysis. Scientifically, you need an organic supplement with an omega-6/3 ratio of 1:1 to 2.5:1. With this powerfully effective ratio you only require a minimum amount of 3-4 grams on a daily basis. This ratio is significantly different than your physician, health practitioner, or popular nutritional publications will likely suggest – they simply don’t know and understand the basis of it. Their wrong analysis consists of a significant number of errors and I hope that you will review The Scientific Calculation of the Optimal Omega-6/3 Ratio at www.BrianPeskin.com (EFA Report: The Scientific Calculation) so you will understand why so many professionals are making these errors. Today, people automatically think of fish oil (all omega-3 derivatives) or flax oil (highly unbalanced in omega-3 content) as the anticancer solution. Following these incorrect recommendations is a significant factor why America’s cancer rates continue to skyrocket in spite of millions of people taking these oils. Fish oil is 100% omega derivatives and can actually be cancer-causing the opposite of what we desire. Flax oil contains far too much parent omega-3. Most parent omegas do not get converted to derivatives – they remain in the cell membrane and tissues in original parent form. Few scientists and medical texts understand this.37 Furthermore, commercial food processing destroys a significant amount of these EFAs along with their oxygenating ability. Here’s a representative listing of categories of foods containing these essential oils. It is imperative to understand that these foods MUST be grown and processed organically, with low heat, and no artificial preservatives. Otherwise, the EFAs will be ruined like the trans fat/hydrogenated, cancer-causing oils you’ve heard about. Compare your diet and these EFA-containing foods. Are you getting enough of them?

Meats (organically raised and processed): Chicken, beef (grass-fed is best),38 lamb, pork, etc. Animal-based protein is important also for obtaining anticancer vitamins, minerals, and strong hemoglobin (enables oxygen transportation).

Seeds: sunflower, sesame, flax, pumpkin, etc.

Seafood: shrimp, fish, lobster, crabs, clams, oysters, etc.

Fruit/vegetables: NONE. Animals with multiple stomachs can extract the EFAs out of plant-based cellulose like grass, but humans, with only one stomach, cannot. Even if we could extract the EFAs, humans could never eat the volumes required—cows eat constantly much of the day and so do billygoats.

Grains/cereal: NONE. Humans cannot extract the EFAs from them.

Dairy/eggs/cheese: “Raw milk” cheeses and organic eggs are excellent sources. Pasteurized (heated) milk will be deficient in EFAs and is detrimental to infants.

Nuts: Organic, unprocessed, raw almonds, walnuts, peanuts, cashews, etc. It is important to understand that consuming lots of seafood is not the anticancer answer—seafood, especially farmed fish, is overly abundant in both parent and derivative omega-3 EFAs.

Can I be a vegetarian and still obtain maximum anticancer protection?

According to Robert Rowen, M.D. the answer is yes. But this is true only if you are eating a high quality vegetarian diet. Many do not. They think simply avoiding animal products means they will be healthier. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you are a vegetarian, you’ll have to be sure you are consuming a sufficient amount of high quality protein and natural fats (listed in the chart and tables above). Many vegetarians don’t consume sufficient protein or natural fats, and therefore an insufficient amount of EFAs. Dr. Rowen strongly believes that eating a largely “Living Foods Diet,” as he calls it, is the way to gain maximum protection. Eating uncooked foods preserves the nutrients. It also avoids damaging the EFAs—an important consideration. Robert Rowen, M.D., is editor-in-chief of Second Opinion Newsletter. Dr. Rowen is internationally known for his work in the field of complementary/alternative/integrative medicine.39 My recommendation for expert advice in this area is to consider his work.

The Miracle of EFA “Oxygen Magnets”

Think of these polyunsaturated EFAs as “oxygen magnets.” The proof of this fact is buried in the world’s leading medical textbooks and medical journals such as Harper’s Illustrated Biochemistry, 26th edition40 and Human Nutrition Clinical Nutrition,41 July 1984. EFAs are integral to the structure and function of cellular respiration. Without high respiration efficiency, cancer is soon to follow. These EFA oxygen magnets in the cell membrane attract the oxygen that’s in your bloodstream and transfer it into the cell just like little oxygen sponges. This process is supposed to be happening in each of your 100 trillion cells. So, no matter how much you breathe or exercise, if you don’t have the proper functional EFAs at the cellular level, your cells will not absorb enough oxygen from your bloodstream. You will be that much more susceptible to cancer.

Without a continuing new supply of these EFAs from food, cellular oxygen transfer is significantly reduced. Imagine what would happen if you had 100 trillion cells that were all deficient in a vital substance they required to be able to absorb oxygen. Here’s an example showing how these essential fats absorb oxygen. At the supermarket, fish goes bad in only a few days because the oil in the fish is highly oxygen-absorbing—it reacts rapidly with the oxygen in the air. Fish spoils rapidly because the EFA-containing oil has the capacity to absorb lots of oxygen. This chemical process is called “oxidation.” This is also true with other types of essential fats. They do their job of absorbing oxygen, but because of it they have a limited life. They simply won’t work after a short period. EFAs become “spent” (rancid). That’s why they need to be replaced every day from our food—Nature designed us this way. There are many ways to add additional oxygen to the bloodstream, such as exercising, drinking “oxygenated” water, or breathing purer air. However, these partial solutions are insufficient for maximum anticancer protection. When the EFA deficiency is solved, every organ becomes its own “oxygen magnet,” like Nature intended.

Breast cancer explained

Breast cancer is the #1 cancer plague to women worldwide. The growing incidence of breast cancer can, for the first time, be explained in light of Dr. Warburg’s discovery about lack of oxygen to the cells. The breasts consist of an exceptionally high amount of fatty tissue. A typical cell membrane in muscle tissue is half fat and contains about one-third EFAs (oxygen transferors). Fatty tissue like the breast contains areas of 80-95% fat concentration. These fatty components of breast tissue require and should have high EFA concentrations, but because of modern food processing, they don’t. Because important organs such as the brain, heart, lungs, and kidneys require EFAs on a priority basis, there may not be enough left over to ensure that breast tissue receives an adequate amount of EFAs. Therefore, oxygen deficiency in the breast tissue will be very significant.

Given this premise, we can deduce that breast tissue should and would be the number one expected cancer site in women worldwide—and it is. This conclusion makes so much sense in explaining the massive rise in breast cancer. Harvard’s Dr. Willett gives us the proof: In a large study concerning the intake of parent omega-6 by over 80,000 nurses it was shown that the group with the lowest intake of linoleic acid (parent omega-6) exhibited the highest incidence of breast cancer.42 Did your ob-gyn tell you that you need this miraculous anticancer nutrient? I doubt it because he probably doesn’t know it.

Warning: Fish oil and overdosing on omega-3 can kill you

Surprisingly, it was known back in 1979 that diet influenced EFA composition of the cell membrane and this finding was published in Cancer Research.43 In 1990, a masterpiece of research conducted by William E. Lands found that the amount of critical parent omega-6 in the tissues was dependant on diet.44 To gain the best in scientific research, I traveled thousands of miles in 2002 to attend the world’s 1st Essential Fatty Acids and Human Nutrition & Health International Conference in Shanghai, China. There, I discovered a shocking and unexpected discovery that fish oil lowers immunity. I nearly fell out of my chair. Overdosing on fish oil supplements can significantly decrease the effectiveness of your immune system, increasing your risk of contracting cancer. The International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL) 4th Congress, which met on June 4-9, 2000 in Tsukuba, Japan, reported this startling fact.45

Don’t think fish oil prevents heart disease. It doesn’t. Cardiovascular Research reported that both fish oil groups and the control groups showed close to equal atherosclerotic progression (getting more clogged in spite of taking fish oil supplements).46 Nor did fish oil stop thickening of the artery. On the contrary, the artery wall got thicker (worsened) with fish oil ingestion! A mere 1.65 grams per day of fish oil supplement was taken. This is a great enough dose to cause adverse immunity as described above and cause excessive internal bleeding, too. These results were published in 2002 showing the failure of fish oil. Did this stop guessing by “experts” in the nutritional and medical fields and even our government from declaring how great fish oil supplements were? No.

Harvard Medical School was involved in the next study, titled “Controlled Trial of Fish Oil for Regression of Human Coronary Atherosclerosis.”47 The daily dose was 6 grams of fish oil vs. 6 grams of olive oil in the control group. Their conclusion? “Fish oil treatment for 2 years DOES NOT promote major FAVORABLE CHANGES in the diameter of atherosclerotic coronary arteries.” That means arterial clogging was not decreased with the fish oil supplement. Eat all the fish you care to, but stay away from fish oil supplements; they can only harm you.

Fish oil “drug” is harmful and their brochure states it

A drug called Omacor® consists of approximately 90% active fish oil. It is used to treat high levels of triglycerides. However, according to the manufacturer’s 2005 medical brochure, it appears that the lowered immunity warning reported above from fish oil and overdosing on omega-3 was confirmed:48 Under “Adverse Reactions,” in their brochure there were double the number of people who developed infections (proving a reduced immunity) while taking the drug compared with those not taking the drug.

Users suffered more flu syndrome, indicating a lowered immune system. Four (4) times more people suffered skin rash while taking the drug. Note: You should understand why the skin rash result is expected. Recall, that there is neither parent omega-3 nor omega-3 derivatives in the skin. This pharmacological overload of omega-3 derivatives proves harmful. Never forget with too much omega-3 consumption, parents or derivatives, the excess is unnaturally “forced” into the tissue membranes causing damage to your immune system and decreased oxygen transfer to the cells. You have been unknowingly placed on the path to cancer by those you trust.

The anticancer answer = the heart disease answer, too!

Dr. Warburg understood that slow blood speed allowed cancer to metastasize. Later, other researchers showed that if you can keep a localized cancer from metastasizing, your risk of dying from cancer decreases by an amazing 10-fold! Even though you may have cancer, you won’t die from cancer. Blood speed and viscosity have a connection to the spread of cancer. This is a surprising, seldom-mentioned fact that was pointed out by world-renowned molecular biologist Robert Weinberg, from my alma mater, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Professor Weinberg was a former director of the Oncology Research Laboratory at the Whitehead Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts and stated in his book:49 “Of those patients who succumb to cancer, fewer than 10% die from tumors that continue to grow at the same site where they originally took root. In the great majority of cases, the killers are the metastases—colonies of cancer cells that have left the site of the original, primary tumor and have settled elsewhere in the body. It is these migrants, or rather the new tumors that they seed, that usually cause death.”

What causes metastasis? Blood clots. This is known, too:50 “Dr. L. Michaels of Canada reasoned that if no clots were allowed to form, then metastasis from a primary tumor could not occur, and that people with only primary cancers would in that case be in a much safer situation. This he proved to be the case. He studied the medical histories of a large number of heart and stroke patients kept on permanent anti-coagulant drug treatment [anti-clotting] to protect their blood circulation, to ascertain the incidence of cancer deaths among them, and found the incidence to be only one-eighth of the expected number. The study covered the equivalent of 1569 patient-years and there was not a single case of death by cancer metastasis in the group.”

What prevents blood from “sticking together” and is also Nature’s natural blood-thinner that prevents blood clots? No, it’s not omega-3 like you are constantly told. Parent omega-6 is much more powerful. AA (arachadonic acid) is a critical omega-6 derivative and major biochemical component which occurs in virtually every cell we have. It is the building block of the most potent anti-aggretory (“helps blood thinning”) agent known, termed prostacyclin. AA also inhibits platelet adhesion making it a natural “blood thinner.” AA even helps SOLVE vascular problems as a response to injury.51

 The real-life proof that omega-3 isn’t the answer for preventing heart disease is that in spite of consuming lots of fish, the Japanese have higher heart disease and cancer contraction rates than Americans!52 We aren’t told and get misled. Don’t think that a daily aspirin is the answer, it isn’t.53 In 2003, Dr. Robert Bonow, head of the American Heart Association stated:54 “Mass treatments could mean under medicating some while exposing others to unnecessary risks of side effects.” Aspirin, he noted, can cause bleeding complications, and, “If you give aspirin to everyone, you don’t save any lives at all, the lives you save by preventing heart attacks and strokes are offset by the lives you lose from bleeding.” Aspirin is not the answer; more unadulterated parent omega-6 is the answer and the cardiovascular medical textbooks know it.55 Heart attack victims often have depleted EFA levels, especially the EFA derivatives AA from parent omega-6 and EPA from parent omega-3, too.56 We need some parent omega-3 because EPA is one of its important derivatives. The problem is that fish oil supplements overdose us with far too much.

Cholesterol and cancer: The parent omega-6 connection explained:

It’s not the saturated fat. It’s the adulterated parent omega-6 that clogs arteries and impedes blood flow. Contrary to what we have heard for decades, it is not the saturated fat clogging your arteries. A groundbreaking 1994 Lancet article reported investigating the components of arterial plaques; they measured the individual components. In an aortic artery clog, they found that there are over ten different compounds in arterial plaque, but NO saturated fat.57 There was some cholesterol in the clog. This is explained by the fact that cholesterol acts as a protective healer for arterial cuts and bruises just like a scab forms over external cuts. What is the predominant component of a clog? You probably guessed it—the adulterated omega-6 polyunsaturated oils—those that start out containing properly functioning EFAs but get ruined during commercial food processing.

Many similar analyses showing the same result have been carried out regarding arterial clogs and published in the medical journals, but few physicians have seen them.58 The average person has little, if any, chance of ever discovering the truth. Contrary to what we have heard for decades it is not the cholesterol itself that is clogging your arteries. But with a deficiency of EFAs, cholesterol acts as a “poison delivery system.” EFAs are cholesterol’s major component. A cat, a true carnivore, consumes a diet of 100% meat; consequently, cats consume lots of cholesterol, saturated fat, and “red” meat. By “popular wisdom” cats should be suffering massive heart attacks on a regular basis, but they don’t. Contrary to popular belief, humans are much closer to a wolf with a 4-pint stomach that can eat once every few days than to a cow with multiple stomachs or a sheep with an 8-gallon stomach (humans have a 4-pint stomach) that has to eat constantly.

As the medical textbook, Molecular Biology of the Cell on page 481 makes clear, cholesterol is necessary for the structural integrity of the lipid bi-layer (the structure in each of our 100 trillion cell membranes). This is precisely why in 1994 the Journal of the American Medical Association, No. 272, pgs 1335-1340, published an article stating that cholesterol-lowering drugs do not work significantly to prevent heart disease. The reason? They can’t lower the amount of its defective parent omega-6 enough.

In 1993, a report titled “Cholesterol Screening and Treatment” was released by the University of Leeds in England. Drugs for lowering high cholesterol levels were given to a study’s participants. The patients whose cholesterol was artificially lowered with drugs developed heart disease just as frequently as the drug-free cholesterol group. As Current Atherosclerosis Reports stated in 2004, here is the precise reason why cholesterol drugs can’t do the job:59 “LDL contains up to 80% lipid [fats and oils], including polyunsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, mainly esters. Linoleic acid (LA), one of the most abundant fatty acids in LDL…” With this information, we see that it is what the cholesterol is transporting, the adulterated EFAs, that is the problem.

An article in Human Nutrition: Clinical Nutrition further verifies that it is parent omega-6 that makes up most of the fatty acids in LDL and HDL cholesterol.60 Don’t let anyone ever tell you that natural fats are “bad.” One hundred trillion cells need lots of EFA-containing natural fats; in particular, lots of parent omega-6. If just a little of this parent omega-6 is defective, reducing its ability to absorb oxygen and perform other cellular functions, it acts as a direct cause of both cancer and heart disease, too. Hence the reason for the ineffectiveness of cholesterol-lowering drugs above—they simply can’t eliminate enough of the defective EFAs being transported in the cholesterol.

This is how the 2005 medical journal article titled “LDL Cholesterol: ’Bad’ cholesterol or Bad Science,” explains the defective parent omega-6.61 The article states: “No tightly controlled clinical trial has ever conclusively demonstrated that LDL cholesterol reductions can prevent cardiovascular disease or increase longevity.” You now understand why the absolute LDL number is not very important if the diet contains sufficient unadulterated EFAs; in particular, an abundance of parent omega-6. Interestingly, the body has no natural “cholesterol sensor” in the bloodstream—but it would if its levels had to be maintained within exact limits like sodium, calcium, and blood glucose levels.62

Danger: Don’t Stop the Omegas … LDL cholesterol transports EFAs into your cells. Any drug that artificially lowers cholesterol ALSO lowers transport of cancer fighting EFAs and can increase your risk of contracting cancer!

Fix the problem of too many bad fats and oils― instead of blaming the messenger LDL. It has been known and published in the world’s leading medical textbooks that polyunsaturated fats (EFAs) naturally support healthy cholesterol levels.63 Has your physician told you? It has been known and published in the world’s leading medical journals that polyunsaturated fats (EFAs) are more effective than a high-carbohydrate, low-fat, life-style. America’s top medical journal published: “Diets high in polyunsaturated fat (EFAs) have been more effective than low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets in lowering cholesterol as well as the incidence of heart disease.”64 The title says it all. It was known in 194165 that EFA deficiency caused a defective cholesterol structure and in 195666 that carbohydrates are a culprit too but the popular press never mentions these facts: “Cholesterol is normally esterfied with unsaturated fatty acid [EFAs] and when — as in our experiments ― these are extremely deficient in the body it is esterfied with much more saturated fatty acids synthesized in the body from carbohydrate.” We now see the danger of a “high carbohydrate” diet to cancer contraction. Have you been told these startling facts by your cardiologist? Probably not.

Parent omega-6 deficiency causes decreased oxygen above the cancer-causing threshold

If there is insufficient unprocessed parent omega-6, experiment shows that the cholesterol structure will incorporate oleic acid (nonessential omega-9) instead.67 Physical-chemical experiments show that linoleic acid (parent omega-6) can bind twice as much oxygen and disassociates at a much higher pressure, much closer to hemoglobin, than oleic acid does.68 Oxygen disassociation curves for oleic acid compared with linoleic acid, omega-6, show a 50% reduction in oxygen transfer, given EFA deficiency.69 With insufficient functional parent omega-6, you will easily surpass the 35% cancer-causing threshold!

Do Cholesterol-Lowering Drugs Cause Cancer?

A dire warning was published in a 1995 study by two physicians, Thomas B. Newman and Stephen B. Hulley, at the University of California in San Francisco. They said widespread cholesterol testing for people under twenty years old should be abandoned. They were concerned that popular cholesterol-lowering drugs were being prescribed far too frequently—and often unnecessarily—for people who were at little risk of developing heart-related problems because they were cancer-causing.

“Drugs to lower cholesterol may cause cancer …”70

The early drugs known as fibrates (clofibrate, gemfibrozil) and the newer drugs known as statins (Lipitor, Pravachol, Zocor), cause cancer in rodents at doses equivalent for mice to the doses used by man. Here’s what physicians Newman and Hulley revealed: “DATA SYNTHESIS – All members of the two most popular classes of lipid-lowering drugs (the fibrates and the statins) cause cancer in rodents, in some cases at levels of animal exposure close to those prescribed in humans.” Do we care about animal studies? Yes. Rodents need and metabolize EFAs in the same manner that humans do.71 No one should require these cancer-causing, cholesterol lowering drugs once their EFA deficiency is solved.

Defective estrogen and testosterone come from a defective cholesterol structure

Defective EFAs cause more trouble. If your cholesterol structure is incorrect because of EFA deficiency then your sexual hormones will malfunction also because the sexual hormones are made by the body from cholesterol.72 Is a defective cholesterol structure the root cause of your PMS, lack of sexual desire, or cellulite that you can’t exercise, massage, or diet away?

What other benefits from the correct parent omega-6/3 ratio can I expect?

Nature is wonderful. She requires just a few essentials for maximum health. With the EFA deficiency solved along with cancer and heart disease protection you also achieve: Significantly decreased appetite plus decreased cravings for sweets, softer, smoother skin, less cellulite, stronger finger nails, thicker, fuller hair, less dandruff, lessened neuropathy if you are diabetic, better blood sugar control, less arthritis, less joint pain, faster healing, fewer headaches, better pregnancies, less PMS, increased mental clarity, better focus, helps improve ADD and ADHD, more energy, greater intensity, faster recuperation.73 EFAs in the ratios recommended give your body maximum anti-inflammatory protection, too. As proof, you may notice the following anti-inflammation benefits: 1. Cuts and bruises heal quicker, 2. Quicker healing of all surgeries, 3. Less bleeding from dental exams/brushing, 4. Less pain of arthritis, 5. Lowering of diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number), 6. Lowering of systolic blood pressure (the top number),  7. Increased blood flow to vital organs, 8. Skin becomes smoother and more elastic, 9. Skin inflammation symptoms may decrease—rashes, skin tags, warts, etc. 10. Vision can improve regardless of age, 11. Alzheimer’s symptoms can decrease, 12. Nerve function improves, including neuropathy and retinopathy, 13. Allergy symptoms may decrease, 14. Fewer headaches, including fewer migraines, and 15. Faster reaction time in athletes.

To summarize:          EFAs particularly Omega 6 are Key to cancer prevention

The next question:   What other steps can minimize the risk of contracting cancer?
