Fish Oil Fallacy:
Learn why fish oil is not as helpful as many people believe. In fact, for most people consuming fish oil  going the wrong direction of favoring Derivative EFAs over Parent EFAs. See our scientific references!

Science Regarding Parent Essential Oils

Please note that scientific studies/discussions are shared for the purposes of “information sharing”.

The sharing of experience is for the purpose of stimulating further research and to increase awareness and understanding of how Parent Essential Oils affect cell oxygen content and overall health. This scientific research must not be relied upon in predicting anyone’s results. Please see our full disclaimer below.

  1. Hypoxia (low oxygen) = Cancer
    Over 80 years ago, Dr. Warburg proved that a 35% reduction in oxygen caused any cell to either die or turn cancerous. An amazing experiment by the Americans Goldblatt and Cameron in 1953 further confirmed this cancer/hypoxia connection*. This experiment was conducted over a 2-year time frame. They exposed heart fibroblasts in tissue culture to intermittent oxygen deficiency for long periods and obtained transplantable cancer cells. In the control cultures that they maintained without any oxygen deficiency, no cancer cells resulted”.

  2. A 1995 study was conducted with eight master athletes to look at the effect that exercise has upon cell oxygenation. It was found that consumption of parent essential oils for six weeks significantly increased the amount of oxygen in cells. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8789569.
  3. Second Opinion - Dr. Robert Jay Rowen - Flexible arteries come from eating vegetable parent essential oils not fish oil.
  4. Longevity - is affected by the fatty acid composition of our membranes — Hulbert 2010 metabolism  longevity role of membrane FAs
  5. Chronic cellular hypoxia as the prime cause of cancer: What is the deoxygenating role of adulterated and improper ratios of polyunsaturated fatty acids when incorporated into cell membranes? — Over 70 years ago, Warburg showed that cells could always be made cancerous by subjecting them to periods of hypoxia. Moreover, he demonstrated that once cells had converted to a cancerous state, reversion could not occur. Modern biochemistry acknowledges that there is a switch from oxidative phosphorylation to glycolysis in tumors that might be concurrent with hypoxia, but does not address the cancer causation. It is our hypothesis that long-term hypoxia of cells in the body, measured in years, is the primary trigger for cancer. We believe that the hypoxia, which has to meet Warburg’s findings of a critical 35% reduction in intracellular oxygen levels to initiate cancer, is linked to the incorporation of adulterated, non-oxygenating, or inappropriate polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) into the phospholipids of cell and mitochondrial membranes. Such incorporation causes changes in membrane properties that impair oxygen transmission into the cell.
  6. A 2002 article in the medical journal Cardiovascular Research (54:1830190. 2002), titled “Effect of dietary supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids on progression of atherosclerosis [plaque buildup in interior of arteries] in carotid [heart to brain] arteries,” by Angerer, P., et al., * details the results of a randomized trial undertaken with the primary objective to clarify the effect of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on cerebral arteries or stroke was undertaken. Contrary to what we have been told about the supposed positive benefits of fish, fish oil supplements, and omega-3 here are there findings: Both fish oil groups and the control groups showed close to equal atherosclerosis progression (that is getting more clogged).
    • In simpler words, fish oil did not stop thickening of the artery. To the contrary, the artery wall got thicker (which is bad) with fish oil ingestion! “In this group of selected patients with documented coronary artery disease, omega-3 PUF [polyunsaturated fatty acids[ given for 2 years did not demonstrate an effect on slowing progression of atherosclerosis in carotid arteries as measured by ultrasound.”
    • In the above study, 1.65 grams per day of fish oil supplement were taken. What this study means (our opinion) is that fish oil is useless at trying to stop an existing “arterial clog” from getting worse. In other words, fish-oil doesn’t work.
       
  7. The article, “The Effect of Dietary Omega-3  Fatty Acids on Coronary Atherosclerosis: A Randomized, Double Blind, Placebo Controlled Trial,” Clemens von Stacky, et al., Annals of Internal Medicine; 130: 554-562, 1999, states that “Ingestion of fish or other sources of omega 3 fatty acids, such as fish oil capsules, has been called a comprehensive strategy toward the prevention of atherosclerosis.” Here is why their study showed that assertion is incorrect: At the end of 2 years, BOTH groups had worsened clogging. The fish oil supplements didn’t work.
     
  8. Harvard Medical School was involved in the next study, called “Controlled Trial of Fish Oil” for Regression of Human Coronary Artery Atherosclerosis,” Frank M. Sacks, et al., Journal of American College of Cardiology Vol 25, No. 7, June 1995: 1492-8. The daily dose was 6 grams of fish oil versus 6 grams of olive oil in the control group. Their conclusion was “Fish oil treatment for 2 years DOES NOT promote major FAVORABLE CHANGES in the diameter of atherosclerotic coronary arteries.” That means clogging was not deceased with the fish oil supplementation.
     
  9. A study by Burr, et al., “Lack of benefit of dietary advice to men with angina”, Eur J ClinNutr 2003, 57:193-200, has reported no benefit of oily fish consumption and an ADVERSE (harmful) effect of fish oil supplementation on CHD mortality (death). This study looked at patients with angina (severe heart pain caused by restricted blood flow) to be divided into two groups: those consuming more fish and those consuming fish oil supplements. The results were:
    • Those patients eating two servings of fish weekly, had no “protection” benefit from death due to cardiovascular causes. If consuming fish helped heart-related health then one would expect to see fewer deaths in the fish eater group. This did not happen.
    • Those patients consuming three (3) fish oil capsules (omega-3 derivatives) daily had an adverse (negative) effect! The fish oil capsules harmed them because this group had more cardiovascular-related deaths.
