Lipo-Gate / Omega-3 Watergate
Re: Most gerontologists now consider lipofuscin more a consequence than a cause of aging.
True that. It’s the tertiary cause.
The secondary cause is what goes into the mouth …
1) DHA omega-3 highly unsaturated (extremely volatile) fatty acids
2) EPA omega-3 highly unsaturated (extremely volatile) fatty acids
3) ALA omega-3 highly unsaturated (extremely volatile) fatty acids
4) oxidizing minerals (iron, copper, zinc, manganese, aluminum, lead, cadmium, mercury, etc.)
The primary cause is what comes out of the mouth …
the Cognitive Shocks that make us eat foods that are so obviously counterproductive to health.
Why are people so easily brainwashed by marketing propaganda and junk science?
John Taylor Gatto believes it’s because the U.S. system of public education is in truth a eugenics program.
Total health honors both what goes into the mouth and what comes out of the mouth.
The I Ching: The Chinese Book of Changes illustrates the concept in Hexagram 27 …
The Corners of the Mouth (Providing Nourishment)
According to The I Ching or Book of Changes (Wilhelm/Baynes translation, 1950, 1967, 1977) …
“Words are a movement going from within outward. Eating and drinking are movements from without inward. Both kinds of movement can be modified by tranquility. For tranquility keeps the words that come out of the mouth from exceeding proper measure, and keeps the food that goes into the mouth from exceeding its proper measure. Thus character is cultivated.”
Albert Rosenfeld (“Changing Images of Dependency in Prolongevity,” Ethical Dimensions of Geriatric Care, 1987 …34
“Pathologic studies of cells, particularly nerve, liver, and heart-muscle cells, often show very large accumulations of lipofuscin, a fatty, pigmented, waxlike substance thought to represent undisposed-of cellular garbage. At advanced ages, lipofuscin may take up as much of 20% of the cell’s space, significantly interfering with all its metabolic processes. Most gerontologists now consider lipofuscin more a consequence than a cause of aging.”
Most gerontologists know it’s politically incorrect to correlate aging — and death — with the omega-3 fatty acids …
1) DHA (docosahexaenoic acid marine oil)
2) EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid marine oil)
3) ALA (alpha-linolenic acid plant oil)
This Unholy Trio won’t age and kill you outright.
It’s Aging and Death By a Thousand Paper Cuts.
It’s Aging and Death by Yellow Fat Disease (Lipofuscinosis).
Omega-3 fatty acids shorten lives just a year or two at a time.
No one notices the difference except Father Time and Doctor Death.
Why are fish oils the best-selling supplement in the world?
I call this phenomenon LIPO-GATE — the supplement industry’s version of Watergate.
Nix On Lipo-Gate.
Is Lipo-Gate a product of misinformation or of disinformation?
I suspect the latter.
How about you?

Fred Warshofsky (Stealing Time: The New Science of Aging, 1999) wrote …
“Like an overcooked piece of meat, we toughen over time. Our joints become stiff and our organs lose function, our bones and tissues turn yellow and brown. ‘If you look at the tissues of people as a function of age,’ says [Dr. Anthony] Cerami, ‘you can actually see the accumulation of these yellow-brown pigments.”

This short video explains the circadian concept without the erroneous “clock gene” disinformation — except it’s mostly incorrect about coffee.
Coffee — by itself — IS a drug.
When combined with a morning sweetener (maple syrup works) and a complete meal enjoyed immediately after eating (on a full stomach), coffee decreases cortisol instead of increasing it.

Re: When your adrenals are shot, as in most people, coffee is just not a good idea
On the contrary, coffee opposes cortisol and supports the adrenals … as long as it’s combined with food, specifically a protein and a simple sugar (fructose, glucose, or sucrose).
