Editor’s Note: The following is an excerpt from the above title, transcribed and strictly translated (German to English) from several of Dr. Johanna Budwig’s key note addresses at various European Health Congresses attended by her peers.
What is Unsaturated Fat?
“Upon analyzing fatty substances, we come to the fatty acid chains with 18 links or so, and can observe that the links are, in places, not so firmly attached to each other. The chain is fragile there, loose; it absorbs water easily – as if you were to fray a smooth silk thread in one place and then draw it through water. The frayed part absorbs water, or dye, more easily. In the same way, these fatty acid chains with their weak, unsaturated connections, form protein associations very easily.”
“The fatty acids become water soluble through this association with protein. There are unsaturated fatty acids in, for example olive oil, which has itself only one unsaturated connection. This fat is not harmful, but neither is it the most beneficial which we need in Europe. This excludes the Russians in the Ukraine, whose diet is different. What we need in Europe today, in Germany as well as in Switzerland, America and France, what we really need, are highly unsaturated fats.”
“The moment two unsaturated double links occur together in a fatty acid chain, the effects are multiplied and in the highly unsaturated fats, the so-called “linoleic” acids, there is generated a field of electrons, a veritable electrical charge which can be quickly conducted off into the body, thus causing a recharging of the living substance – especially of the brain and nerves. To stabilize these fats the unsaturated connections, which require oxygen so actively, are destroyed by industrial handling methods. But it is exactly those highly unsaturated fatty acids which play a decisive role in the respiratory functioning of the body.”
“Without these fatty acids, the enzymes in the breath cannot function and we asphyxiate, even when given extra oxygen, as for example in hospitals. The lack of these highly unsaturated fatty acids paralyzes many vital functions. Primarily, it cuts off the air we breathe. We cannot survive without air and food and neither can we survive without these fatty acids – that was proven long ago.”
SPEAKER: Dr. Johanna BUDWIG seven-time Nobel Prize nominee –made her mark in the world of science as one of the first researchers to conclusively link the role of essential fats to disease prevention and ultimate cure.
