Another scientific study that'll be buried in the literature and get no coverage from Main Stream English Speaking American Media outlets (link here to NCBI) that documents the really nasty things that a diet high in corn oil does to mice. Tip of the hat to Stephan at Whole Source blog (link here) for this illuminating post: "Dissolve Away those Pesky Bones with Corn Oil"
I've eliminated corn oil from my diet, and have no source of omega-6 (linoleic acid) that I am aware of currently as part of my nutritional intake. The absence of omega-6s, nutrasweet / sucralose / aspartame / splenda / acesulfame potassium, HFCS, rice, noodles, bread, and bread products have me close enough to 200 lbs now that if I lose any more weight (@ 50" chest and 34" waist) I won't fit into the new clothes I bought last week. Yeah, I need to start eating more, before I shrink anymore eating healthy foods and moderately exercising. What a heck of a problem to have!
Regarding Corn Oil, Stephan puts it best (and hilariously): "This leads me to conclude that corn oil is particularly good at causing mouse versions of some of the most common facets of the "diseases of civilization". It's exceptionally high in omega-6 (linoleic acid) with virtually no omega-3.
Make sure to eat your heart-healthy corn oil! It's made in the USA, dirt cheap and it even lowers cholesterol!"
Oh, and my non-fasting, post dinner blood sugar last night, was just barely over 100, after a dinner of pork loin roast, red wine braised mushrooms, organic spinach salad, with a medjool date and 85% organic cocoa square as a chaser (104 to be exact). Typically, it's run 50 to 80 points higher in 2008 & 2009, non-fasting. Saturday night I had brownies and ice cream, for the first time in months.
Type II diabetes, buh bye! Go hang out with your corn products, rice, and artificial sweeteners! I'm glad I put an end to it before I hit my 50s. Now if I can just keep my father alive and away from industrial "food" poisons... =\
