Live Fats – How is it people born 1900 to 1940 live so long

If natural live fats are so bad for us, how is it that people born between 1900 and 1940 live so long  without cancer, diabetes and heart disease? Maybe I don’t understand, it just doesn’t make sense. In the 1985 era I remember reading a medical doctor who commented that if we didn’t start eating more natural fats people would have a lot of physical problems. Now it seems many of the physical problems are improved by using good natural fats. Interesting!

The natural fats will include milk and milk products like cheese, yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, eggs and the fats from all the animals we eat. Nut oils, flax seed oil, coconut oil and olive oil are the fats we eat from plants. I’d like to go through and make comments about these products.

Coconut oil is probably my favorite. Well, some days. Other days whole raw milk is my favorite! Coconut oil, like raw milk, has been used for thousands of years. In the last 60 years both have been declared not to be good for us by some.

Raw milk, human, cow or goat is the best to use. If you buy raw goat or cow milk, the dairy it comes  from is inspected very frequently. They are under far more stringent regulations than a dairy providing  pasteurized milk. The pasteurized milk dairy is only inspected once a year. Raw milk dairies are usually tested monthly, and test themselves daily.  Raw milk is allowed to have far, far fewer bacteria in the milk than is allowed in the pasteurized milk.

It would be wise to do a lot more research and decide whether you really want to use raw or pasteurized milk. We hear about raw milk when there is any illness they think could possibly come from milk. They actually find it comes through pasteurized milk.

If the mother is eating a whole food diet, her infant will thrive on her natural milk and will be amazingly healthy.

People lived on raw milk for many, many hundreds of years before cows were herded into close quarters and were not kept as clean as when they were free ranging animals.

Pasteurizing milk destroys the good beneficial bacteria as well as the bad bacteria, many healthy enzymes and the temperature effects the structure of the milk  In raw milk the good bacteria are left in the milk and they keep the bad bacteria reduced in numbers. All the healthy enzymes and the original structure of the raw milk are there naturally.

Grass fed cows, producing raw milk, will have an excellent Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio of somewhere between 4:1 to 1:1.  Cows fed commercial feed containing many grains and soy to improve the  quantity of milk may have an Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio of 19:1. High ratios of Omega 3 compared to Omega 6 leads to reduced health, increased disease, and a range of inflammatory problems (like arthritis and cancer).

Coconut oil, shredded coconut (unsweetened), and coconut milk all contain medium chain fatty acids which we need for a healthy body. Mammals have milk with mcfa’s to feed their young just as we do.  Coconut oil is good for cooking, as a replacement for shortening, as face cream, body lotion, deodorant, for teeth and on hair.

Be sure to obtain your daily or weekly supply of good live fats. We need them!
