Are Essential Fatty Acids Essential?

Ray Peat (an American scientist with a growing following amongst personal trainers) suggests Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are actually not essential.

A bold and courageous idea to suggest.

Is he right? NO.

Ray Peat is a very intelligent man in my opinion. He does an excellent job at analysing some studies. However, there’s a reason he’s not published these ideas in peer reviewed papers.

Fortunately his dietary recommendations do provide enough EFAs to avoid a marked deficiency.

I continue to think Charles Poliquin is a genius, even if his EFA recommendations are especially high.
