Essential Fatty Acids

a: An essential fatty acid ~
b: antifreeze

What: This is a very good discussion of diet and the characteristics of different types of food. The key point about fats: "Essential fatty acids can act like antifreeze, they are liquid at very low temperatures. For example, flax is a cold weather grain, so it has a lot of healthy fats". This is a good comparison. Another stark comparison is the physical state of butter and any poly unsaturated fat at room temperature. Butter is solid and most if not all unsaturated oils are liquid. The general assumption is that eating unsaturated fatty acids increases the fluidity of membranes in the body
