Fats and Longevity

Eat fatty raw plant foods for longevity. Living a long and vibrant life is a matter of minimizing free radical damage to the body through a diet rich in antioxidants.

A free radical is an electron-deficient molecule produced from oxygen and cooked fat in the body. In seeking to acquire another electron, a free radical is capable of combining with and destroying enzymes, amino acids, and other cellular elements.

Whole raw plant foods rich in polyunsaturated fat (walnuts, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds) always contain antioxidants, such as Vitamins E, C, carotene, and selenium. Other raw plant foods, such as citrus fruits, contain the antioxidant bioflavonoid. Deep green leaves contain the antioxidant beta-carotene. No antioxidant supplements are necessary.

We want to minimize oxidation in the body due to free radical damage. A high oxidation means that electrons are being stolen from the body by refined and cooked oils (corn oil, safflower oil, etc.). Raw plant fats have long chain fatty acids which help protect cell membranes from oxidation. Raw plant fats deactivate free radicals by given them electrons.

Essential fatty acids have an abundance of electrons. The spare electrons in fats help sweep toxins along to the liver. In a healthy body, there are spare electrons and having spare electrons equates into achieving longevity.

Humans should live longer than any other mammal on Earth because humans can consciously control the amount and quality of food material entering the body. If the intake of this food is decreased to a pleasant frugal minimum (but still includes high-quality raw plant fats, which are antioxidants), then the obstructions and free radicals in the system will be decreased to a minimum. In this way, the system becomes abundant in electrons, is more efficient (well-oiled), and operates with less friction, thus maximizing longevity.
