No-Fat Diet and Rabbit Starvation
Nutrition is so important in every stage of life, however it’s especially crucial in the early years. The average Western diet has changed dramatically over the years, such that today we consume a much higher proportion of omega-6 fatty acids relative to omega-3 fatty acids than ever before. The importance of omega-3 fatty acids in human development has been well established in fetal and neonatal development, with brain and retinal tissues highly dependent on omega-3 fatty acids, specifically docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) for membrane fluidity and signal transduction. In childhood, omega-3s have been shown to contribute to ongoing cognitive development, so supplementation with DHA is highly recommended. (Carlson, 2013)
This is why I’ve always said that a fat-free diet is the most dangerous diet known to man. Did you know that there is a phenomenon known as rabbit starvation? It was described by observing settlers that ate nothing more than rabbits, which were in abundance, and filled their bellies, yet died of starvation. The lack of fat in rabbit meat (tastes like chicken) was the killer. You NEED fat; pregnant mothers and children need fat even more (eat coconut oil).
