This from a person who complained about name calling being childish.
The sad part is that it was you who said that palmitic acid can be rendered "not dangerous" but somehow agreeing with you about that is wrong as well?
my very 1st post in this thread.
Look up Palmitic Acid.......Only way you cant eat palmitic acid safely is to combine it with linoleic acid and red meat dosent have linoleic acid just
high concentrations of palmitic acid.
In one of the follow up post I said this
Palmitic acid is produced naturally by the human body. We dont need palmitic acid in our diet. As I said where palmitic acid is found else where other
than red meat it is found alongside linoleic acid which is always at a higher concentration than palmitic acid
Ok fair enough I did omit to say most food sources if not all contain palmitic acid. So I explain it better for you. You are saying eat red meat with
lots of olive oil and this will reduce the risk of palmitic acid in the meat to be less harmful.. WRONG
For arguements sake lets say a source of meat has 18grams of palmitic acid and no unsaturated fat. Olive oil contains 10grams of unsaurated fat and
2grams of palmitic acid. (the numbers are not exact but for this purpose its not needed to be exact). So we can say olive oil has a ratio of 5:1 of
unsaturated fat to saturated fat. This ratio is important because should the palmitic content increases the less effective unsaturated fat is going to
be protecting the body from harm caused by palmitic acid. Now as you eat that piece of red meat with your olive oil it is going to add to the olive
oil palmitic content another 18g . That makes a total of 20 grams of palmitic acid going into your body with only 10g of unsaturated fat. making the
ratio 1:2 in favour of saturated fat making the benefits of the unsaturated fat pointless.
Do you understand now? YOu wanna cry to mommy now?
