Waxy Liver Disease
Waxy Liver Disease is what doctors called Yellow Fat Disease during the time of the Civil War.
“Waxy, lardaceous, or amyloid liver” distinguished it from Fatty Liver Disease (cirrhosis).
Yellow Fat Disease also affects the heart, kidneys, pancreas, brain, etc.
Many doctors were already beginning to suspect cod liver oil and fish oils.
Charles Murchison, M.D. wrote (in 1868) …
“Cod-liver oil is of questionable utility; Frerichs states that he has known cases where waxy liver was developed under its continuous use.”
According to the same source …
“The liver undergoes greater enlargement from the so-called waxy, or amyloid deposit, than from any other disease, excepting, perhaps, cancer. I have known the liver of an adult affected with this disease weigh upwards of 180, instead of 50 or 60 ounces, and the liver, of which I show you here a portion, weighed one-seventh, instead of a twenty-fifth, of the entire body of the child from whom it was taken.”
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are slow poisons.
Hyped as “essential for the brain,” what they really do is shrink the brain.
According to Ray Peat (“The Great Fish Oil Experiment,” 2006-2016) …
“In declaring EPA and DHA to be safe, the FDA neglected to evaluate their antithyroid, immunosuppressive, lipid peroxidative (Song et al., 2000), light sensitizing, and antimitochondrial effects, their depression of glucose oxidation (Delarue et al.,2003), and their contribution to metastatic cancer (Klieveri, et al., 2000), lipofuscinosis [Yellow Fat Disease] and liver damage, among other problems.”
What about DHA’s supposed “quantum effects”?
No way, no day, no shape, no form.
The global fish oil market is expected to reach $4,080,000,000 ($4.08 billion) by 2022.
It’s another classic case of transnational corporations stealing both your money and your health.

Unfortunately, and perhaps predictably, the “experts” blamed the crocodile die-off on “toxins,” not the actual cause of carp eating smaller fish feeding on DHA- and EPA-rich algae.
Yellow Fat Disease escalates as it ascends the ecological food chain.
