"'It’s the doctors promoting low fat diets who are responsible for the increase in skin cancers. ’
I have my reservations"
Obviously you have failed to read or understand the evidence provided in that previous thread
There is no way I can help people who aren’t prepared either to look at the evidence or choose not to act rationally or logically.
I’m simply suggesting the natural levels of omega 3 and Vitamin D human bodies evolved to work best with should be taken as our guide now our current lifestyles prevent daylong full body exposure to sunlight.
Post-peer review (publisher’s document) (pdf) Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids: photoprotective macronutrients
“Evidence suggests that LC n-3 PUFA, particularly EPA, are capable of reducing UV-induced inflammation in human skin, in addition to potentially offering protection against photoimmunosuppression, photocarcinogenesis, photoageing and photosensitivity disorders. Ultimately, combined dietary and standard topical sunscreen measures may optimise human skin protection from sunlight. The photoprotective properties of SC n-3 PUFA are less explored but may hold potential for skin protection.”
People who eat predominantly traditional fats like butter and coconut oil usually have nice skin. These fats are high in saturated fat and low in omega-6 linoleic acid, while pro-inflammatory industrial vegetable oils like corn and soy oil contain a lot of it.
If you alter the balance of omega 3 to omega 6 and change the skin’s balance from anti-inflammatory to pro-inflammatory what do you think will happen when you heat that skin up?
Would you not consider it reckless if, knowing a house was in the path of a bushfire, the owner soaked it in petrol rather than an anti inflammatory agent.?
Why do you doubt the vilification of saturated fats has resulted in higher obesity and cancer incidence?
Those here who have raised their omega 3 levels and reduced omega 6 intake will be aware of the fact it improves the time we can spend in the sun or under UVB without our skin burning. No one should ever get sunburnt or allow anyone in their company to get sunburnt.
Same with vitamin D If you don’t or won’t get your 25(OH)D up to the level 125nmol/l = 50ng/ml you won’t / can’t maximise it’s anti-inflammatory potential.
