Inflamm-Aging & Garb-Aging

Re: Does it affect some but not all mammals? It’s hard to find any mention of human incidences. Didn’t you say something once about the Eskimos not eating too much salmon for that reason? What then of other coastal Indians. All they ate was salmon. Did they get yellow fat disease?

If you check into it, the Coastal Indians ate many other foods besides salmon.

And now, because they’re being forced to eat almost exclusively salmon, 1/4 of their babies are being born deformed, according to The Oregonian in the 1990s (a front page news story mistakenly blaming radiation).

No mammal is immune, and any algae-eating fish usually has Yellow Fat Disease.

The younger the fish, the higher the metabolism, and the less Yellow Fat Disease.


Any human who lives long enough usually dies of one of the many variations of Yellow Fat Disease (Inflamm-Aging and Garb-Aging) …

Waxy Yellow Fat Disease / White Fat Disease / Steatitis / Pansteatitis / Nonsuppurative Pansteatitis / Weber-Christian Disease / Fatty Necrosis / White Muscle Disease / Stiff Lamb Disease / Stiff Calf Disease / Watery Hide Disease / Nutritional Fat Necrosis / Nutritional Myodegeneration (NMD) / Nutritional Myopathy / Nutritional Muscular Dystrophy / Brown Heart Disease / Cardiac Necrosis / Hepatic Steatosis / Hepatic Dietetica / Granulomatous Steatitis / Necrotizing Granulomatous Steatitis / Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease / Embryonic Death Syndrome / Ceroid Disease / Lipofuscinosis / Cumulative Lipofuscinosis / Progressive Lipofuscinosis / Etc.


I suspect that guidelines such as limiting servings of fish to 12 ounces a week (6 ounces for albacore) have more to do with Yellow Fat Disease than mercury and dioxin.

If people were to eat fish on a daily basis, the rampant increase in progressive lipofuscinosis would be too obvious to camouflage.


Ironically, if it weren’t for a Monsanto creation (Ethoxyquin), many more people would be dying from Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Arteriosclerosis, and other premature aging syndromes.

According to Nutrition and Feeding of Fish: Second Edition (edited by Tom Lovell), 1998 …

“Oxidation of lipids in feeds or feedstuffs can cause reduction of the nutritional value of certain essential lipids and vitamins. This can also produce pro-oxidative compounds that are toxic to the fish, especially if vitamin E or selenium is marginal or deficient in the diet. To preserve oxidation-sensitive nutrients and prevent formation of toxic peroxide compounds, synthetic antioxidants should be included in fish feeds. Natural antioxidant compounds, like the vitamins ascorbic acid and alpha-tocopherol, are not stable in feeds for very long, and thus are not good preservatives. Commercial stabilized sources of ascorbic acid, such as 1-ascorbyl-2-phosphate, and alpha-tocopherol, such as alpha-tocopherol acetate, have little antioxidative activity. Synthetic antioxidants such as BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoulene), which are approved for use in human foods, are sometimes used in animal feeds. Ethoxyquin (1,2-dihydro-6-ethoxy-2,2,4-trimethyl quinoline), which is approved only for use in animal feeds, is commonly used in fish feeds. Maximum levels of synthetic antioxidants permitted by the Food and Drug Administration is 0.02% of the fat content for BHA and BHT and 150 mg kg feed for ethoxyquin.”

    Unless you deal with mitochondrial garbage (lipofuscin, hemofuscin, ceroid & co.), you’re not detoxing.

    Anything less is Faux Detox. Otto Warburg would be bemused.

    Faux Detox is detoxing under the hood but not under the engine cover.–e-books.php

      Hello Atom,
      Can you please elaborate on how to detox by targeting the mitochondrial garbage. I’m guessing eating lots of butter would be one way. Are there other tactics one can use to target the fuscins for removal more directly? Thank you!

        Maintaining the high-level wellness of the real Master Gland — the Thyroid Gland — is a higher choice.

        Eating On Time (according to Circadian Growth Period) is one of the best ways to detox.

        Minimizing polyunsaturated fatty acids and highly unsaturated fatty acids is also important.

        A tiny amount of PUFAs and HUFAs are necessary for health, but it’s best to let the body regulate their use.

        In the same way, no one goes to the health food store to buy a cortisol supplement.

        Or an adrenaline supplement.

        Or a lactic acid supplement (not knowingly, anyway).

        We probably won’t be seeing “Fight or Flight” pills sold at the hippie food store in the near future! :-D

    So the best way long run is avoid the omega 3s in general and bring in the better fats in time? Avocado and coconut oil in the morning, cheese or raw cream afternoon and butter with your baked potatoes in the evening.


    • March 14, 2018 @ 4:20 pm Atom

      Right on, James! Thumbs Up!

      It’s impossible to avoid (n-3) oils completely, and that’s OK.

      Coconut oil is 1% PUFAs; butter, 3%; olive oil, a minimum of 10% if the olives are grown at lower elevations and warmer climates; avocado oil is similar to olive oil (and whole avocados even less).

      The strategy is NOT TO SEEK PUFAs OUT, in the same way that a little errant fluoride in our food is usually no problem, but watering food with fluoridated water is insane!

    Atom, you mentioned that tea was the beginning of the end of the British Empire. Might you expand on that?


    • March 18, 2018 @ 8:15 pm Atom

      Some historians have speculated that the aluminum in tea going into British brains was the reason the UK lost its foremost place in world domination.

      The tea plant is greedy for aluminum, sucking it up eagerly.

      Aluminum is a known factor in Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia, along with iron and manganese.

        Please help me out Atom,was reading on Ray Peat,what do you think about what he says about nuts and avocados being bad for you?and what about those 3quarts of milk with all that sugar in it?


        • March 20, 2018 @ 7:11 pm Atom

          I’ve confined eating nuts to the morning almost every day for breakfast since 1976, and am still in good health.

          I’ve been eating avocados almost every day for breakfast for over five years.

          I don’t drink milk but eat liberal amounts of cheese and butter.

          Ray Peat convinced me to eat extra honey, maple syrup, and sugar, and less complex carbs.

          I greatly respect his work, but obviously have some disagreements with him.

          What kinds of food are you eating?
