What Happens When We Don't Get Enough Good Fats? – Post

What Happens When We Don’t Get Enough Good Fats?
The short answer is: Every part of the body gradually deteriorates and
falls apart. No cell, tissue, gland, or organ can function normally
without them. Here is a longer list:

  • Dry skin
  • Constipation
  • Low energy levels
  • Brittle hair and hair loss
  • Poor nail growth
  • Deterioration of liver and kidneys
  • Behavioral changes due to brain deterioration
  • Glands dry up
  • Immune system deteriorates, resulting in more infections, poorer wound healing, and increased cancer
  • Digestion problems, inflammation, bloating, allergies, autoimmune conditions
  • Bone mineral loss
  • Reproductive failure: sterility in males and miscarriage in females
  • Retarded growth of children
  • Tingling in arms and legs due to nerve deterioration
  • Vision and learning problems
  • Insulin resistance
  • Increased risk of overweight
  • Increased cancer risk
  • Increased cardiovascular risk
  • Decreased ability to cope with stress
  • In mental illness, increased symptoms
  • Decreased lung function
  • Decreased tissue oxidation
