There is a new fight–a struggle between good and evil.
It’s happening in our own bodies. It’s happening with our food choices.
Many of the foods that are killing us are hiding in plain sight–many contain a saturated fatty acid called palmitic acid, which is prevalent foods that are high in saturated fats, such as processed meets, cheeses, and dairy products.
Not all Fatty Acids were created equal
On one hand you have Palmitic Acid, a “bad fatty acid”. A saturate, it is well documented that palmitic acid has been shown to have toxic effects on pancreatic beta cells, leading to a greater chance for insulin resistance and subsequent development of diabetes.
On the other hand you have Palmitoleic Acid, a “good fatty acid”. A Monounsaturated fatty acid, it protects against the negative effects of Palmitic Acid. You can reduce the negative impact of the saturates in your diet by ingesting higher concentrations of the “good fatty acids”.
