"Oxford University - The Illuminati Breeding Ground" by David Icke

The following is an article written by David Icke for the Oxford University students newspaper

Oxford University is the centre of a nexus that dictates and manipulates what is taught to students at all levels of "education."

It is controlled through a network of organizations, including the Round Table secret society created by followers of the Oxford University professor, John Ruskin. The most prominent of these Ruskin groupies was Cecil Rhodes, the first head of the Round Table, and banker Alfred Milner, who replaced him. Both of these men grotesquely abused the black people of Southern Africa and paved the way for apartheid.

The Round Table is at the centre of a network that includes the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), the Council on Foreign Relations in the United States (CFR), the US-based Trilateral Commission (TC), and the Bilderberg Group (Bil). I have been exposing the Bilberberg Group while being called "mad" for many years and now even the mainstream media is having to acknowledge its existence. These groups have among their membership the top people in global politics, business, banking, the media, military, education, etc., and they co-ordinate a common policy and agenda between apparently unconnected people, countries, and organizations. The Round Table was hatched at Oxford University and when Rhodes died in 1902 he left money in his will to fund "Rhodes Scholarships" that take overseas students to Oxford. These Rhodes Scholars return to their own countries and again and again end up in positions of power. Bill Clinton and the former Australian Prime Minister, Bob Hawke, are but two examples.

The Round Table is itself part of a much bigger web and its agenda is for a global centralized fascist state with a world government, central bank, currency, army, and a micro-chipped population connected to a global computer. When I first began to expose this in books like ..And The Truth Shall Set You Free andThe Biggest Secret I was, as usual, dubbed a "nutter". Now look around you with open eyes and open minds and you can see that this structure is unfolding so fast. The European Union was vital to this plan and this is why so many operatives for the groups outlined above have been involved in its creation - many of them Oxford students together going back to the Second World War. The reason for the obsession with centralization is obvious. If you are a few who wish to control the lives of billions, the last thing you want is diversity of decision-making. There are simply too many people and locations to control. Instead you need to centralize the key decisions and the more you centralize, the more power you have to increase the pace of centralization. This is why centralization in all areas of life, politics, business, banking, media, military, has quickened with every year.

The control of "education" is vital to this agenda. In fact, the aim of this network is not "education", but indoctrination. The idea is turn out adults who see life and history in a way that maintains the population in subservience and ignorance. This allows the network or "Illuminati" to advance its agenda without challenge from the mass of the population. The technique to achieve this is very straightforward and has proved to be stunningly effective over thousands of years. You "teach" and emphasize "information" that will encourage people to believe what you want them to believe and see the world as you wish them to see it. At the same time you ignore and suppress alternative information that may prompt people to see another reality. The media do this every day and so the public are constantly misled about world events, people in the news, and so on. "Education" is precisely the same and just think about this for a second. If you wanted to create a structure in which you could indoctrinate young people into your way of thinking, what would be the idea way of achieving this? To havecontrol of what those young minds see and hear day after day for the first 18 years+ of their lives. And that is precisely what we have with today’s "education" system.

Now that would be OK if the children and students were given all information available and encouraged to think for themselves. But so often, to pass exams and progress within the system, you have to tell the system what it wants to hear - the system’s version of reality. What was it the Nazis said? The bigger the lie the more people will believe it. The "education" system, with Oxford at its centre, is little more than a propaganda ministry designed to turn out adults who think "correctly". As with all mind manipulation, they offer carrots and sticks to "encourage" compliance. Students are rewarded for submitting to the system’s version of events, while those who challenge and question are marginalized, not least by low grades.

The other prime role of Oxford is to take selected students (often selected by bloodline for reasons explained in my books) and prepare them for life as an operative for the network, or "Illuminati", within politics, business, finance, the media, etc. The Rhodes Scholars are an example of this. Such selected students "get lucky" and enter positions of power because doors open for them that are denied to the, literally, unitiated. I will give you an example.

In my book And The Truth Shall Set You Free, I feature the research of Dr Kitty Little. She is a long time researcher into the corruption and infiltration within the British Intelligence agencies. Her scientific career has included research for the Ministry of Aircraft Production during the Second World War, followed by nine years at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Harwell. In her submission to the 1995 Nolan Committee on Standards in Public Life, she tells the story of an attempt to recruit her into the Communist Party at Oxford University in 1940. The Communists, she said, had gone "underground" by joining the University Labour Party and she attended a meeting of a Labour Party "study group" in a room at University College.

The main speaker at the meeting, who clearly believed he was among friends, began to reveal the plot to destabilize the United Kingdom and Commonwealth, ready for a Marxist/Fascist (same thing) takeover. She later realized that this was part of the plan designed to introduce the global centralized control called theNew World Order. The plot was outlined by the speaker at that Oxford meeting to destroy the United Kingdom defenses, engineer a Marxist/Fascist takeover of Rhodesia and South Africa and to use what became known as the European Community, now Union, as a smokescreen to hide the changeover to a centralized Marxist/Fascist rule of Europe. The plan was also to destroy British manufacturing industry.

He went on to describe how members of the political section of this subversive organization were going to infiltrate the British Parliament and civil service, some entering each of the political parties. Many would go into the right wing of the Labour Party, others to the left wing of the Conservatives. Eventually there would be a fusion into a new "Centre Party". Put the majority of Labour, Conservative, and Liberal Democrat politicians together and, if you ignore the rhetoric and look at the policies, that’s what we now have in fact - a one party "consensus". The speaker at Dr Little’s meeting said that the British distrusted extremists and so posing as "moderates", occupying the centre ground, would allow them to dismiss their opponents as "right wing extremists". This subversive organization did not have a name, he said, because that would make it harder to prove it existed. The speaker said he had been chosen to be the political head of this organization and expected himself one day to become the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. All this was said in 1940 and that man did indeed become Prime Minister.

His name was Harold WilsonWilson (Bilderberg Group - "Bil") was Prime Minister for the period 1964 to 1976, except for four years when his friend at Oxford, Ted Heath (Bil), took over between 1970 and 74. Dr Little says that when she made her story public, the Daily Express writer of intelligence "exposes", Chapman Pincher, showed a copy of her allegations to Harold Wilson. He was issuing libel writs like confetti at the time, but his only reaction to Dr Little was to say she had mistaken him for a Tom Wilson. She knew she had done nothing of the kind, but she checked the entire University records and there was not even one T. Wilson enrolled there in this century! She knew Wilson as an economics fellow at Oxford because it was he who researched and compiled most of the "BeveridgeReport, which created the Welfare State and the Social Security system after the war. William Beveridge was Wilson’s economics master at Oxford and, Dr. Littlesays, he was little more than a figurehead who put his name to it. On the surface the report was admirable in many ways, but from the perspective of today it can be seen to have wider implications. It created dependency and control, while destroying opportunities for self-reliance and independence outside the elite-controlled system. Now that dependency has been created the Welfare State is being dismantled and much of what is left is being handed over to privatization -the elite bankers in other words - and the rug pulled from under the dependent people.

Wilson resigned abruptly in 1976 and was replaced by Jim Callaghan (Bil), who became a joint president of the Royal Institute of International Affairs. His fellow presidents were Lord Carrington (TC and Bilberberg chairman) and Harold Wilson’s former Chancellor and Home Secretary, Lord (Roy) Jenkins (TC, Bil), who, with Lord David Owen (TC, Bil), Bill Rogers (Bil), and Shirley Williams, left the Labour Party in the early 1980s to form a centre party, the SDP,now the Liberal Democrats.

All these people worked closely with another prominent member of the Labour Government under Harold Wilson and James Callaghan. This was theBilderbergerTrilateralist, chairman of the International Monetary Fund Interim Committee, and council member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Denis Healey. All of these people were heavily involved with Ted Heath in taking the UK into the European Community. I wonder when they were in the highest political offices in the land, if Wilson, Heath, Jenkins, and Healey, ever got together and pondered on the remarkable twist of "destiny" that led four people who were at Oxford University in the same period to become the leading political names of the 1960s and 70s, just as the United Kingdom was committing itself to the European Community. Indeed Jenkins would go on to be president of the European Commission and Heath would take the UK into the community, now union. Wilson (Jesus College and University College), Healey (Balliol), Jenkins (Balliol) and Heath (Balliol), are such an inspiration to us all. Look at what anOxford education can do for you. In this same period, the Liberal Party leaders also did Oxford proud in the form of Jo Grimond (Balliol and Bil), and Jeremy Thorpe (Trinity College), the author of the book, Europe: The Case for Going in.
Lord Jenkins also went on, of course, to become Chancellor of Oxford University. He has also been described as something of a guru to UK Prime Minister,Tony Blair. Today Blair is another "centre ground" extremist in Downing Street who is pressing for the UK to join the Euro and concede what is left of its independence to the Illuminati-controlled super state. Blair received a law degree in 1975 from St. John’s College at Oxford University and is a member of theBilderberg Group, as is his mentor, Peter Mandelson (St Catherine’s, Oxford), and his chancellor, Gordon Brown.

Oxford University is a nexus for the control of what is "taught" in education and a breeding ground for the Illuminati placemen and women of the next generation. The vast majority of students are not aware of this because they are not the chosen ones and even many of those who are chosen, overwhelmingly by bloodline, have no idea until much later why they found fortune smiling upon them.

The way to break this circle is through peaceful rebellion with the emphasis on peaceful. What you fight, you inevitably become, which is why you will see no difference between a vehement Nazi and a vehement "anti-Nazi". They are mirrors of each other while they believe they are opposites. No, the way to bring down this network of power and manipulation is to stop co-operating with it, stop being unquestioningly subservient to it, and to make public the information that the Illuminati-controlled education system and media are so desperate to suppress and discredit.

Don’t let them tell you what to think, no matter how "different" your own views may be in relation to the official line. If you are not different in this world of stunning uniformity, what on earth are you doing? Baaaaaaa.

Unsaturated Vegetable Oils: Toxic

Immunodeficiency (weakness of the immune system) can take many forms. AIDS, for example, refers to an immunodeficiency which is “acquired,” rather than “inborn.” Radiation and vegetable oils can cause “acquired immunodeficiency.” Unsaturated oils, especially polyunsaturates, weaken the immune system’s function in ways that are similar to the damage caused by radiation, hormone imbalance, cancer, aging, or viral infections. The media discuss sexually transmitted and drug-induced immunodeficiency, but it isn’t yet considered polite to discuss vegetable oil-induced immunodeficiency.
Unsaturated oils: When an oil is saturated, that means that the molecule has all the hydrogen atoms it can hold. Unsaturation means that some hydrogen atoms have been removed, and this opens the structure of the molecule in a way that makes it susceptible to attack by free radicals.
Free radicals are reactive molecular fragments that occur even in healthy cells, and can damage the cell. When unsaturated oils are exposed to free radicals they can create chain reactions of free radicals that spread the damage in the cell, and contribute to the cell’s aging.
Rancidity of oils occurs when they are exposed to oxygen, in the body just as in the bottle. Harmful free radicals are formed, and oxygen is used up.
Essential fatty acids (EFA) are, according to the textbooks, linoleic acid and linolenic acid, and they are supposed to have the status of “vitamins,” which must be taken in the diet to make life possible. However, we are able to synthesize our own unsaturated fats when we don’t eat the “EFA,” so they are not “essential.” The term thus appears to be a misnomer. [M. E. Hanke, "Biochemistry," Encycl. Brit. Book of the Year, 1948.]
Q: You say vegetable oils are hazardous to your health. What vegetable oils are you talking about?
Mainly, I’m referring to soybean oil, corn oil, safflower oil, canola, sesame oil, sunflower seed oil, palm oil, and any others that are labeled as “unsaturated” or “polyunsaturated.” Almond oil, which is used in many cosmetics, is very unsaturated.
Chemically, the material that makes these oils very toxic is the polyunsaturated fat itself. These unsaturated oils are found in very high concentrations in many seeds, and in the fats of animals that have eaten a diet containing them. The fresh oils, whether cold pressed or consumed as part of the living plant material, are intrinsically toxic, and it is not any special industrial treatment that makes them toxic. Since these oils occur in other parts of plants at lower concentration, and in the animals which eat the plants, it is impossible to eat a diet which lacks them, unless special foods are prepared in the laboratory.
These toxic oils are sometimes called the “essential fatty acids” or “vitamin F,” but this concept of the oils as essential nutrients was clearly disproved over 50 years ago.
Linoleic and linolenic acids, the “essential fatty acids,” and other polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are now fed to pigs to fatten them, in the form of corn and soy beans, cause the animals’ fat to be chemically equivalent to vegetable oil. In the late 1940s, chemical toxins were used to suppress the thyroid function of pigs, to make them get fatter while consuming less food. When that was found to be carcinogenic, it was then found that corn and soy beans had the same antithyroid effect, causing the animals to be fattened at low cost. The animals’ fat becomes chemically similar to the fats in their food, causing it to be equally toxic, and equally fattening.
These oils are derived from seeds, but their abundance in some meat has led to a lot of confusion about “animal fats.” Many researchers still refer to lard as a “saturated fat,” but this is simply incorrect when pigs are fed soybeans and corn.
Q: How are these oils hazardous to your health?
Ultimately, all systems of the body are harmed by an excess of these oils. There are two reasons for this. One is that the plants produce the oils for protection, not only to store energy for the germination of the seed. To defend the seeds from the animals that would eat them, the oils block the digestive enzymes in the animals’ stomachs. Digestion is one of our most basic functions, and evolution has built many other systems by using variations of that system; as a result, all of these systems are damaged by the substances which damage the digestive system.
The other reason is that the seeds are designed to germinate in early spring, so their energy stores must be accessible when the temperatures are cool, and they normally don’t have to remain viable through the hot summer months. Unsaturated oils are liquid when they are cold, and this is necessary for any organism that lives at low temperatures. For example, fish in cold water would be stiff if they contained saturated fats. These oils easily get rancid (spontaneously oxidizing) when they are warm and exposed to oxygen. Seeds contain a small amount of vitamin E to delay rancidity. When the oils are stored in our tissues, they are much warmer, and more directly exposed to oxygen, than they would be in the seeds, and so their tendency to oxidize is very great. These oxidative processes can damage enzymes and other parts of cells, and especially their ability to produce energy.
The enzymes which break down proteins are inhibited by unsaturated fats, and these enzymes are needed not only for digestion, but also for production of thyroid hormones, clot removal, immunity, and the general adaptability of cells. The risks of abnormal blood clotting, inflammation, immune deficiency, shock, aging, obesity, and cancer are increased. Thyroid and progesterone are decreased. Since the unsaturated oils block protein digestion in the stomach, we can be malnourished even while “eating well.”
Plants produce many protective substances to repel or injure insects and other animals that eat them. They produce their own pesticides. The oils in seeds have this function. On top of this natural toxicity, the plants are sprayed with industrial pesticides, which can concentrate in the seed oils.
It isn’t the quantity of these polyunsaturated oils which governs the harm they do, but the relationship between them and the saturated fats. Obesity, free radical production, the formation of age pigment, blood clotting, inflammation, immunity, and energy production are all responsive to the ratio of unsaturated fats to saturated fats, and the higher this ratio is, the greater the probability of harm there is.
There are interesting interactions between these oils and estrogen. For example, puberty occurs at an earlier age if estrogen is high, or if these oils are more abundant in the diet. This is probably a factor in the development of cancer.
All systems of the body are harmed by an excess of these oils. There are three main kinds of damage: one, hormonal imbalances, two, damage to the immune system, and three, oxidative damage.
Q: How do they cause hormonal imbalances?
There are many changes in hormones caused by unsaturated fats. Their best understood effect is their interference with the function of the thyroid gland. Unsaturated oils block thyroid hormone secretion, its movement in the circulatory system, and the response of tissues to the hormone. When the thyroid hormone is deficient, the body is generally exposed to increased levels of estrogen. The thyroid hormone is essential for making the “protective hormones” progesterone and pregnenolone, so these hormones are lowered when anything interferes with the function of the thyroid. The thyroid hormone is required for using and eliminating cholesterol, so cholesterol is likely to be raised by anything which blocks the thyroid function. [B. Barnes and L. Galton, Hypothyroidism, 1976, and 1994 references.]
Q: How do they damage the immune system?
Vegetable oil is recognized as a drug for knocking out the immune system. Vegetable oil emulsions were used to nourish cancer patients, but it was discovered that the unsaturated oils were suppressing their immune systems. The same products, in which vegetable oil is emulsified with water for intravenous injection, are now marketed specifically for the purpose of suppressing immunity in patients who have had organ transplants. Using the oils in foods has the same harmful effect on the immune system. [E. A. Mascioli, et al.,Lipids 22(6) 421, 1987.] Unsaturated fats directly kill white blood cells. [C. J. Meade and J. Martin, Adv. Lipid Res., 127, 1978.]
Q: How do they cause oxidative damage?
Unsaturated oils get rancid when exposed to air; that is called oxidation, and it is the same process that occurs when oil paint “dries.” Free radicals are produced in the process.
This process is accelerated at higher temperatures. The free radicals produced in this process react with parts of cells, such as molecules of DNA and protein and may become attached to those molecules, causing abnormalities of structure and function.
Q: What if I eat only organically grown vegetable oils?
Even without the addition of agricultural chemicals, an excess of unsaturated vegetable oils damages the human body. Cancer can’t occur, unless there are unsaturated oils in the diet. [C. Ip, et al., Cancer Res. 45, 1985.] Alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver cannot occur unless there are unsaturated oils in the diet. [Nanji and French, Life Sciences. 44, 1989.] Heart disease can be produced by unsaturated oils, and prevented by adding saturated oils to the diet. [J. K. G. Kramer, et al., Lipids 17, 372, 1983.]
Q. What oils are safe?
Coconut and olive oil are the only vegetable oils that are really safe, but butter and lamb fat, which are highly saturated, are generally very safe (except when the animals have been poisoned). Coconut oil is unique in its ability to prevent weight-gain or cure obesity, by stimulating metabolism. It is quickly metabolized, and functions in some ways as an antioxidant. Olive oil, though it is somewhat fattening, is less fattening than corn or soy oil, and contains an
antioxidant which makes it protective against heart disease and cancer.
Israel had the world’s highest incidence of breast cancer when they allowed the insecticide lindane to be used in dairies, and the cancer rate decreased immediately after the government prohibited its use. The United States has fairly good laws to control the use of cancer-causing agents in the food supply, but they are not vigorously enforced. Certain cancers are several times more common among corn farmers than among other farmers, presumably because corn “requires” the use of more pesticides. This probably makes corn oil’s toxicity greater than it would be otherwise, but even the pure, organically grown material is toxic, because of its intrinsic unsaturation.
In the United States, lard is toxic because the pigs are fed large quantities of corn and soy beans. Besides the intrinsic toxicity of the seed oils, they are contaminated with agricultural chemicals. Corn farmers have a very high incidence of cancer, presumably because of the pesticides they use on their crop.
Q: But aren’t “tropical oils” bad for us?
In general, tropical oils are much more healthful than oils produced in a cold climate. This is because tropical plants live at a temperature that is close to our natural body temperature. Tropical oils are stable at high temperatures. When we eat tropical oils, they don’t get rancid in our tissues as the cold-climate seed oils, such as corn oil, safflower oil and soy oil, do. [R.B. Wolf, J. Am. Oil Chem. Soc. 59, 230, 1982; R. Wolfe, Chem 121, Univ. of Oregon, 1986.]
When added to a balanced diet, coconut oil slightly lowers the cholesterol level, which is exactly what is expected when a dietary change raises thyroid function. This same increase in thyroid function and metabolic rate explains why people and animals that regularly eat coconut oil are lean, and remarkably free of heart disease and cancer.
Although I don’t recommend “palm oil” as a food, because I think it is less stable than coconut oil, some studies show that it contains valuable nutrients. For example, it contains antioxidants similar to vitamin E, which lowers both LDL cholesterol and a platelet clotting factor. [B. A. Bradlow, University of Illinois, Chicago; Science News 139, 268, 1991.] Coconut oil and other tropical oils also contain some hormones that are related to pregnenolone or progesterone.
Q: Isn’t coconut oil fattening?
Coconut oil is the least fattening of all the oils. Pig farmers tried to use it to fatten their animals, but when it was added to the animal feed, coconut oil made the pigs lean [See Encycl. Brit. Book of the Year, 1946].
Q: What about olive oil? Isn’t it more fattening than other vegetable oils?
In this case, as with coconut oil, “fattening” has more to do with your ability to burn calories than with the caloric value of the oil. Olive oil has a few more calories per quart than corn or soy oil, but since it doesn’t damage our ability to burn calories as much as the unsaturated oils do, it is less fattening. Extra virgin olive oil is the best grade, and contains an antioxidant that protects against cancer and heart disease. [1994, Curr. Conts.]
Q: Is “light” olive oil okay?
No. Now and then someone learns how to make a profit from waste material. “Knotty pine” boards were changed from a discarded material to a valued decorative material by a little marketing skill. Light olive oil is a low grade material which sometimes has a rancid smell and probably shouldn’t be used as food.
Q: Is margarine okay?
There are several problems with margarine. The manufacturing process introduces some toxins, including a unique type of fat which has been associated with heart disease. [Sci. News, 1974; 1991.] There are likely to be dyes and preservatives added to margarine. And newer products contain new chemicals that haven’t been in use long enough to know whether they are safe.
However, the basic hardening process, hydrogenation of the oils, has been found to make the oils less likely to cause cancer. If I had to choose between eating ordinary corn oil or corn oil that was 100% saturated, to make a hard margarine, I would choose the hard margarine, because it resists oxidation, isn’t suppressive to the thyroid gland, and doesn’t cause cancer.
Q: What about butter?
Butter contains natural vitamin A and D and some beneficial natural hormones. It is less fattening than the unsaturated oils. There is much less cholesterol in an ounce of butter than in a lean chicken breast [about 1/5 as much cholesterol in fat as in lean meat on a calorie basis, according to R. Reiser of Texas A & M Univ., 1979.].
Q: Are fish oils good for you?
Some of the unsaturated fats in fish are definitely less toxic than those in corn oil or soy oil, but that doesn’t mean they are safe. Fifty years ago, it was found that a large amount of cod liver oil in dogs’ diet increased their death rate from cancer by 20 times, from the usual 5% to 100%. A diet rich in fish oil causes intense production of toxic lipid peroxides, and has been observed to reduce a man’s sperm count to zero. [H. Sinclair, Prog. Lipid Res. 25, 667, 1989.]
Q: What about lard?
In this country, lard is toxic beause the pigs are fed large quantities of corn and soy beans. Besides the natural toxicity of the seed oils, the oils are contaminated with agricultural chemicals. Corn farmers have a very high incidence of cancer, presumably because corn “requires” the use of more pesticides. This probably makes corn oil’s toxicity greater than it would be otherwise. but even the pure, organically grown material is toxic, because of its unsaturation.
Women with breast cancer have very high levels of agricultural pesticides in their breasts [See Science News, 1992, 1994].
Israel had the world’s highest incidence of breast cancer when they allowed the insecticide lindane to be used in dairies, and the cancer rate decreased immediately after the government prohibited its use. The United States has fairly good laws to control the use of cancer-causing agents in the food supply, but they are not vigorously enforced. [World Incid. of Cancer, 1992]
Q: I have no control over oils when eating out. What can I do to offset the harmful effects of polyunsaturated oils?
A small amount of these oils won’t kill you. It is the proportion of them in your diet that matters. A little extra vitamin E (such as 100 units per day) will take care of an occasional American restaurant meal. Based on animal studies, it would take a teaspoonful per day of corn or soy oil added to a fat-free diet to significantly increase our risk of cancer. Unfortunately, it is impossible to devise a fat-free diet outside of a laboratory. Vegetables, grains, nuts, fish and meats all naturally contain large amounts of these oils, and the extra oil used in cooking becomes a more serious problem.
Q Why are the unsaturated oils so popular if they are dangerous?
It’s a whole system of promotion, advertising, and profitability.
50 years ago, paints and varnishes were made of soy oil, safflower oil, and linseed (flax seed) oil. Then chemists learned how to make paint from petroleum, which was much cheaper. As a result, the huge seed oil industry found its crop increasingly hard to sell. Around the same time, farmers were experimenting with poisons to make their pigs get fatter with less food, and they discovered that corn and soy beans served the purpose, in a legal way. The crops that had been grown for the paint industry came to be used for animal food. Then these foods that made animals get fat cheaply came to be promoted as foods for humans, but they had to direct attention away from the fact that they are very fattening. The “cholesterol” focus was just one of the marketing tools used by the oil industry. Unfortunately it is the one that has lasted the longest, even after the unsaturated oils were proven to cause heart disease as well as cancer. [Study at L.A. Veterans Hospital, 1971.]
I use some of these oils (walnut oil is very nice, but safflower oil is cheaper) for oil painting, but I am careful to wash my hands thoroughly after I touch them, because they can be absorbed through the skin.
Unsaturated fats cause aging, clotting, inflammation, cancer, and weight gain.
Avoid foods which contain the polyunsaturated oils, such as corn, soy, safflower, flax, cottonseed, canola, peanut, and sesame oil.
Mayonnaise, pastries, even candies may contain these oils; check the labels for ingredients.
Pork is now fed corn and soy beans, so lard is usually as toxic as those oils; use only lean pork.
Fish oils are usually highly unsaturated; “dry” types of fish, and shellfish, used once or twice a week, are good. Avoid cod liver oil.
Use vitamin E.
Use coconut oil, butter, and olive oil.
Unsaturated fats intensify estrogen’s harmful effects.

Essential Fatty Acids (“EFA”): A Technical Point
Those fatty acids, such as linoleic acid and linolenic acid, which are found in linseed oil, soy oil, walnut oil, almond oil, corn oil, etc., are essential for the spontaneous development of cancer, and also appear to be decisive factors in the development of age pigment, alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver, diabetes, obesity, stress-induced immunodeficiency, some aspects of the shock reaction, epilepsy, brain swelling, congenital retardation, hardening of the arteries, cataracts, and other degenerative conditions. They are possibly the most important toxin for animals.
The suppression of an enzyme system is characteristic of toxins. The “EFA” powerfully, almost absolutely, inhibit the enzyme systems–desaturases and elongases–which make our native unsaturated fatty acids.
After weaning, these native fats gradually disappear from the tissues and are replaced by the EFA and their derivatives. The age-related decline in our ability to use oxygen and to produce energy corresponds closely to the substitution of linoleic acid for the endogenous fats, in cardiolipin, which regulates the crucial respiratory enzyme, cytochrome oxidase.
Although the fish oils are less effective inhibitors of the enzymes, they are generally similar to the seed oils in their ability to promote cancer, age-pigment formation, free radical damage, etc. Their only special nutritional value seems to be their vitamin A and vitamin D content. Since vitamin A is important in the development of the eye, it is interesting that claims are being made for the essentiality of some of the fatty acid components of fish oil, in relation to the development of the eye.
The polyunsaturated oils from seeds are recommended for use in paints and varnishes, but skin contact with these substances should be avoided.

Budget tax cuts for business to follow loss of AAA credit rating

George Osborne has vowed not let up in his plan to cut Britain’s deficit as he paved the way to cut tax for businesses in next month’s Budget.

The Chancellor hit back after the loss of the country’s prized AAA credit rating amid worries about weak growth and rising levels of debt.
He faced political flak after repeatedly stressing the importance of staving off any downgrade, vowing before the 2010 general election: “We will maintain that AAA rating.”
However, Mr Osborne said Moody’s, the ratings agency which took the decision, had sent out a “clear message” that Britain had a debt problem which needed to be tackled “head on” and which required “tough measures”.
He is expected to use next month’s Budget to do more to help hard-pressed businesses.
Conservative MPs expect the main rate of corporation tax, already cut to 21p from 2014, to be further reduced.
The special rate for smaller enterprises could also come down from its current level of 20p as Mr Osborne looks to create the most favourable tax regime for business of all G20 nations.
Further Government spending cuts are also under way as Mr Osborne grapples with the deficit.
He is already looking to achieve at least £10billion extra savings from welfare spending in 2015-16 - and sources close to him indicated this programme would be driven through with conviction.
Mr Osborne will look to use the Budget next month to spell out how much extra savings need to be achieved - and then spell out exactly how this will be done in the Spending Review, which will set detailed totals for government departments from 2015 to 2017, in early summer.
A source close to him said: “If people don’t want cuts to public services such as the police and the armed forces they have to accept that there need to be savings elsewhere.”
Three senior cabinet ministers - Theresa May, the Home Secretary, Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, and Philip Hammond, the Defence Secretary - are currently said to be digging their heels in during intense negotiations ahead of the Spending Review.
Mr Osborne appears unlikely, however, to meet the wishes of some Tory MPs who are urging the abolition of capital gains tax.
A Treasury source said: “We must get away from the illusion that there is a silver bullet that would end all our economic problems.”
In a BBC interview, the Chancellor said Britain’s situation would get “very much worse” if the coalition abandoned it efforts to deal with Britain’s debt mountain - a course of action he said Labour were advocating.
Question on the credit rating downgrade, Mr Osborne said: “I think we’ve got a very clear message, a loud and clear message that Britain cannot let up in dealing with its debts, dealing with its problems, cannot let up in making sure that Britain can pay its way in the world.
“What is the message from the ratings agency? Britain’s got a debt problem. I agree with that. I’ve been telling the country for years that we’ve got a debt problem, we’ve got to deal with it.
“What do they also say? That if we abandon our commitment to deal with that debt problem, then our situation would get very much worse and I’m absolutely clear that we must not do that.
“In the end, the test of our credibility as a country is there every day in the markets when we borrow money on behalf of this country from investors all around the world.
“At the moment we can do that very cheaply with very low interest rates precisely because people have confidence that we have got a plan, we’ve got to stick to that plan and we are going to deliver that plan.”
While Labour went on the attack, the party faced questions of its own after Ed Balls, the shadow chancellor, admitted borrowing would now be higher if he were in charge.
Mr Balls told Radio 4: “The economy has flatlined. There has been no growth now for two years, our deficit is getting bigger... the plan has not worked.”
In a separate interview, on Sky News, Mr Balls insisted that the economy would be in a better condition if the coalition had stuck to Labour’s spending plans in 2010.
However, he admitted he would currently be increasing borrowing if he was in charge.
“That is what I would do right now,” he said. “I would slow the pace of deficit reduction. I would have an immediate stimulus in the economy.”
In the wake of the shadow chancellor’s interview John Penrose, the Conservative MP, demanded: “Can anyone think of a question where Ed Balls’ answer would not be 'borrow more money’? No? Me neither.”
Andrea Leadsom, a Conservative member of the Commons Treasury select committee, said: “Labour will no doubt claim it’s all the government’s fault. The truth is Labour brought our country to its knees.
"Labour want us to spend was excessive spending that got us into this mess and anyone who calls for yet more borrowing and spending must be off their rocker.”
Mark Littlewood, director general of the Institute of Economic Affairs, said Mr Osborne should now take “immediate action” to cut the deficit.
“George Osborne should focus on making sufficient savings in public spending to implement a substantial programme of tax reductions,” said Mr Littlewood.
“With the size and scope of the state in Britain at current levels it is no wonder our economy is so fragile.”
Moody’s said it had acted to downgrade Britain for the first time because of “continuing weakness in the UK’s medium-term growth outlook”, the risk that the Government will fail to hit its targets for reducing the deficit and the UK’s “high and rising debt burden”.
However, Moody’s predicted that on its current course, the UK will eventually regain its AAA status.
Danny Alexander, the Liberal Democrat Chief Secretary to the Treasury, said the downgrade was “disappointing news.”
However, he added: “Our credibility as a country is tested every day in the financial markets. We continue to command very low interest rates.
Credit ratings agencies were not the “be all and end all” but “one benchmark among many,” Mr Alexander added.
