Yellow Fat & White Muscle Diseases
White Muscle Disease is just another way of saying Yellow Fat Disease.
They’re both caused by HUFAs and PUFAs — highly-unsaturated fatty acids (omega-3s) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-6).
HUFAs? Think EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
According to Wikipedia …
“While the potential roles of DHA in the mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease are under active research, studies of fish oil supplements, which contain DHA, have failed to support claims of preventing cardiovascular diseases.”
(Somehow the Macho Medical Media Mafia assigned to monitor the Church of Wikipedia let the above statement slip through their surveillance network.)
So White Muscle Disease is Yellow Fat Disease under another name.
So is Nutritional Myodegeneration (NMD) and …
Nutritional Muscular Dystrophy
Mulberry Heart Disease
Stiff Lamb Disease
It’s politically incorrect to name the numerous human versions of Yellow Fat Disease.
According to “Nutritional Myopathies in Ruminants and Pigs,” The Merck Veterinary Manual, 2009-2015 …
“In mulberry heart disease, the characteristic lesions are a pericardial sac grossly distended with straw-colored fluid that contains fibrin strands, and extensive hemorrhage throughout the epicardium and myocardium. Microscopically, the heart shows both vascular and myocyte lesions; in addition to interstitial hemorrhage, there is usually extensive myocardial necrosis together with fibrin thrombi in capillaries.”
