PAUL MASON 5a | PLANT STEROL, not cholesterol, LIKELY CAUSES atherosclerosis
presents episode 676 | Dr Paul Mason
Low Carb Down Under podcast

Seed oils [vegetable oils]…
-polyunsaturated, readily reactive
double bond:
~very prone to oxidation
“even without cooking”

Study: High rates of oxidation in
walnut oil within days
“consumption of oxidized oils
leads to oxidation of
lipoproteins in our blood”

Compare oxidation between…
-highly oxidized oil [red] vs
-low oxidized oil [blue] “Oxidation within our circulation
Seed oils contain phytosterol
[fake plant cholesterol] INTERFERE with biochemical
processes that use cholesterol

Highest concentration of these
phytosterols: in seed oils
ALSO CEREAL…because we
eat so much!
Our body tries to reject these,
but some phytosterols get in…
1% incorporated into tissues!
“Associated with premature,
severe cardiovascular disease”

Proof: 33 year old male:
-premature, severe cardio disease
-found plant sterols in tissues
2005, 2011, 2015 papers:
All reported:
“Plant sterols detected in
diseased arteries”

Plant sterols also contribute to
crystals found in artherosclerosis
“Likely plant sterols!”
They readily form crystals…
just like cholesterol
“Foam cells…
don’t like to release cholesterol;
but, love to release phytosterol:
thus forming crystals

Foam cells happy to store
cholesterol [chart] “Plant sterols may also come
from degraded red blood cells”
Outer membrane of red blood
cells has more free cholesterol;
also has plant sterols
“Consumption of seed oils
results in accumulation of
plant sterol in red blood cells”
-at the expense of cholesterol!!
