Emily Deans, you have Got to be kidding me!
In yet another salvo against Inflammation, Dr. Emily theorizes a link between that emerging health boogeyman and,
It turns out the processed-food, ADM-sponsored, corn-oil-based imbalance in our current diet between Omega 6 and Omega 3 can affect not only our general level of inflammation-based ailments, like autoimmune and arthritis, etc.,
–not just our bodies; but our BRAINS can become the victims of this imbalance, too!
No wonder Omega 3s have become a recent recommendation for good health on pretty much all fronts.
The harder part is this: Analyzing your current diet to root out sources of inflammatory Omega 6 oils.
-As hinted at earlier, one of them is Corn oil; -and it’s found in abundance in pretty much every processed food there is.
Any food with HFCS in it would also be a big source, as that syrup retains some of the Omega 6 components of corn.
I’ll leave all the sneaky details, theoretical leaps beyond the standard brainchem theory of depression, and links between other inflammatory agents, proteins, serotonin, SSRIs, etc. to Emily’s article over at PT.
-But the idea that something like Inflammation can reach out from simple accidental profit/savings-driven diet-oversight, through a series of a thousand tiny nebulous links, as far out as something like psychology, depression, and quality of human existence are just frankly Mindblowing.
