Monsanto Fighting Lipofuscin?
The cure is worse than the disease.
Old age a few years earlier is the worst most people will get from eating omega 3 fatty acids.
Many people get various forms of amyloid-tangled, brain-plaque dementia, but highly unsaturated fatty acids aren’t the sole perpetrator.
Richard F. Wilson & David F. Hildebrand (“Engineering Status, Challenges and Advantages of Oil Crops,” Plant Biotechnology for Sustainable Production of Energy and Co-products, 2010) wrote …
“Oils naturally high in polyunsaturated fatty acids are more prone to degradation and off-odor formation than oils that are rich in saturated fatty acids.”
According to the same source …
“A bold but effective countermeasure taken by the US soybean industry was the introduction of soybean oil with genetically modified linolenic acid concentration by Pioneer/DuPont/Bunge (Treus™), Monsanto/Cargill (Vistive™), and Iowa State University (Asoyia UltraLow Lin™). Soybean oils with 1.0-3.5% linolenic acid — about the same level as partially hydrogenated soybean — had been shown to produce better tasting fried foods with less room odor than partially hydrogenated soybean oil (Mounts et al. 1994). Thus these low-linolenic soybean oils provided the US industry with much needed flexibility to deal with the trans-fat issue. They also helped the industry to develop a production and market infrastructure that could accommodate new raw commodity streams for additional edicle oils with other genetically modified quality traits.
“Next generation soybean oils that feature higher 18:1 levels and lower levels of 16:0, 18:2 and 18:3 are now entering the vegetable oil market with the assistance of organizations like Qualisoy. These new products include: Plenish™, genetically engineered high oleic acid oil (85% 18:1) from Pioneer/DuPont; and Vistive-Gold™ with about 75% oleic acid, 15% linoleic acid, and less than 3% linolenic acid, from Monsanto.”
Linoleic acid = omega 6 fatty acid.
Linolenic acid = omega 3 fatty acid.

What makes fish stink? Fish oils —> highly unsaturated fatty acids.
What happened when Harry (eicosapentaenoic acid) met Sally (docosapentaenoic acid)? Clupanodonic acid.
Hold your nose.

Monsanto has been fighting Yellow Fat Disease on the sly for decades. Check out “Monsanto & Yellow Fat Disease,” Atom’s Blog, July 31, 2016, for details.
How’s this for Big Ag Yin/Yang? In the following YouTube advertisement, Monsanto is selling one product (Soymega™) to INCREASE omega 3 fatty acids and another (Vistive Gold™) to DECREASE omega 3 fatty acids — all in the same 2-minute video.
