September 2016 DVD showing

Saturated Fat Does a Body Good

(The Biological Function of Saturated Fats )

by Chris Masterjohn

Recorded at the 2015 Wise Traditions Conference.

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

DVD begins at 6:30 PM
Please come around 6:15

Location:

Market of Choice
67 West 29th, Eugene
Upstairs in the Community Room

Description: 

Saturated fat has long been demonized as the energy source most likely to raise “bad cholesterol” and thereby contribute to heart disease. Only recently is this beginning to change in the mainstream. Despite this, the disciplines of biochemistry and of cellular and molecular biology have been elucidating the positive and essential biological functions of saturated fatty acids for decades. Among these are included the following: regulating the fluidity of cellular membranes, anchoring proteins to membranes, and ensuring that proteins properly interact with one another and thus that proper communication takes place within and between cells. A number of specific saturated fatty acids also provide energy in unique ways that aid in improving body composition and intestinal health. Saturated fats, in fact, are so important that we synthesize many of them in large amounts from carbohydrate. This talk will explore the specific biological roles of saturated fats and conclude by discussing the health implications that these rules suggest for consuming saturated fat in the diet.

Chris Masterjohn, PhD
is assistant professor of health and nutrition sciences at Brooklyn College in Brooklyn, NY. In 2012, he obtained his PhD in nutritional sciences from the University of Connecticut, where he studied the role of vitamin E and other antioxidants in regulating the metabolism of methylglyoxal, a potentially toxic byproduct of energy metabolism that appears to contribute to diabetes and cardiovascular disease. From the fall of 2012 through the summer of 2014, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Illinois in Urbana, where he studied interactions between fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K. He is now continuing this research at Brooklyn College. Chris created and maintains a website Cholesterol-and-Health.Com which is home to his blog, The Daily Lipid.  He has published eight peer-reviewed scientific papers and has contributed regularly to the pages of Wise Traditions since 2004.
