                In the March, 1994 edition of "The Guardian" the problem of environmental (and workplace)

contamination by Estrogenic chemicals was discussed. Estrogenic chemicals are those that exert an effect

on the hormone system in such a way as to mimic estrogen, a female sex hormone. It seems that many synthetic substances are capable of having such an effect through a variety of mechanisms.

ESTROGENS - THE NEW ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD?

by Brian Kohler, National Rep - Health, Safety and Environment

Recent reports have highlighted the possibility that there is widespread contamination of the environment

by compounds which disrupt the endocrine system. The endocrine system is the network of glands and

organs that maintain hormone balance. Hormones are chemicals (proteins, actually) produced by the body

that control a wide range of biological activities from metabolism to fetal development. Their power is such

that a small variation in hormone levels can cause a large biological effect.

                THE OILING OF AMERICA Part 1, Part 2. by Mary G. Enig and Sally Fallon

                © 1998 by Mary G. Enig, PhD MGEnig@aol.com

                                Modern-day diets high in hydrogenated vegetable oils instead of traditional animal fats are implicated in

causing a significant increase in heart disease and cancer.

                                       Part 1 of 2

                http://www.nexusmagazine.com/OilingAmerica.1.html

                                       Part 2 of 2

                http://www.nexusmagazine.com/OilingAmerica.2.html

                [Note: shows that trans fats, like soybean and canola are bad for you.]

                from part 1 (Polyunsaturated fatty acids are the kind of fats found

in large amounts in highly liquid vegetable oils made from corn, soybeans, safflower seeds and sunflower seeds.

Mono-unsaturated fatty acids are found in large amounts in olive oil, palm oil and lard; saturated fatty acids are found in

large amounts in fats and oils that are solid at room temperature, e.g., butter, tallow and coconut oil.)

(In the years that followed, a number of population studies demonstrated that the animal model - especially one derived

from vegetarian animals - was not a valid approach for the problem of heart disease in human omnivores.)

(The 1968 International Atherosclerosis Project, in which over 22,000 corpses in 14 nations were cut open and examined

for plaques in the arteries, showed the same degree of atheroma in all parts of the world - in populations that suffered from a

great deal of heart disease, and in populations that had very little or none at all.8)

(Most animal fats - like butter, lard and tallow - have a large proportion of saturated fatty acids. Saturated fats are straight

chains of carbon and hydrogen that pack together easily so that they are relatively solid at room temperature. Oils from

seeds are composed mostly of polyunsaturated fatty acids. These molecules have kinks in them at the point of the

unsaturated double bond. They do not pack together easily and therefore tend to be liquid at room temperature.

 

Judging from both food data and turn-of-the-century cookbooks, the American diet in 1900 was a rich one, with at least 35

to 40 per cent of calories coming from fats, mostly dairy fats in the form of butter, cream, whole milk, and also eggs. Salad

dressing recipes usually called for egg yolks or cream; only occasionally for olive oil. Lard or tallow served for frying. Rich

dishes like head cheese and scrapple contributed additional saturated fats during an era when cancer and heart disease were

rare. Butter substitutes made up only a small portion of the American diet, and these margarines were blended from

coconut oil, animal tallow and lard - all rich in natural saturates.

 

The technology by which liquid vegetable oils could be hardened to make margarine was first discovered by a French

chemist named Sabatier. He found that a nickel catalyst would cause the hydrogenation (the addition of hydrogen to

unsaturated bonds to make them saturated) of ethylene gas to ethane. Subsequently, the British chemist Norman developed

the first application of hydrogenation to food oils and took out a patent. In 1909, Procter & Gamble acquired the US rights

to a British patent on making liquid vegetable oils solid at room temperature. The process was used on both cotton-seed oil

and lard to give "better physical properties", to create shortenings that did not melt as easily on hot days.

 

The hydrogenation process transforms unsaturated oils into straight 'packable' molecules by rearranging the hydrogen

atoms at the double bonds. In nature, most double bonds occur in the cis configuration - that is, with both hydrogen atoms

on the same side of the carbon chain at the point of the double bond. It is the cis isomers of fatty acids that have a bend or

kink at the double bond, preventing them from packing together easily. Hydrogenation creates trans double bonds by

moving one hydrogen atom across to the other side of the carbon chain at the point of the double bond. In effect, the two

hydrogen atoms then balance each other and the fatty acid straightens, creating a packable 'plastic' fat with a much higher

melting temperature.)

 This article details what can happen to people and children when they eat MSG, so I assume that this can happen to animals as well. 

(“A most interesting substance, MSG, is added to food but has no

nutritional value.  It doesn't affect the food it is in, and it

doesn't have any flavor.  Rather, it produces its flavor enhancing

effect by stimulating your taste buds.  Scientists call glutamic

acid, from which MSG is derived, an excitotoxic amino acid because

it is known to excite, and even kill, brain cells in laboratory

animals.  MSG doesn't change your food at all.  MSG changes you.”)

          two main ingredients at issue are the flavor enhancer monosodium glutamate, or MSG, and the

          artificial sweetener aspartame, more commonly known by the trade name NutraSweet . both

          contain amino acids - glutamate and aspartate - which occur naturally in the brain as

          neurotransmitters - the chemicals that carry messages between nerve cells." "…can include

          reactions: and marked personality disturbances with violent behavior" "…maintain millions of

          people suffer adverse reactions to MSG, some to only minuscule amounts that may be hidden

          in other ingredients. Further, they say, it becomes toxic to everyone at some point…."

          "'Educators around this country are having all sorts of meetings concerning declining test

          scores and violence in the classroom,' Schwartz said. 'Yet we are providing drugs for breakfast,

          lunch and dinner that are known causes of personality alterations, inability to concentrate and

          violent behavior.'"
