I inquired of my wife, who is a great resource in such things, having done a lot of study on the subject of the body and fats and diet, etc. She tells me that dietary fat, saturated fat, produced cholesterol for the brain, which is necessary to brain function. Fat is, to the brain, as blood is to the rest of the body-it keeps it healthy. She says, "Fat is one of the densest nutrients. The blood can carry it. But it is more cherished by the heart and the brain as a nutrient. It breaks down into ketones which is a preferred form of nutrition by the brain. Rabbit starvation is when folks try to eat lean meat. They can die. that is why they add fat to things like pemmican. The brain is 70% cholesterol. If people replace their animals fats with the polyunsaturates, which are the grain oils, they get cancer."
This is brief, texted by her, but there is more I can get. My point being, dietary saturated fat is very important, but the Lord demanded the majority of it. I am trying to see what would make it like blood, which is the life, and what I am seeing is that, as the blood is to the body, so fat is to the brain-it is the life and health to the brain. So, it belonged to God. Or that's where I am right now. BUt I don't claim to know it, nor that I am right, I am just interested in other thoughts on it.
