Soybean Oil Found to Cause Genetic Changes in the Brain Affecting Depression and Obesity

Impacts gene that codes for production of oxytocin.

Published

on

A new study has found that the consumption of soybean oil, one of the most common edible oils in the western diet in recent decades, causes genetic changes that negatively impact how the brain deals with depression and obesity.

According to IFL Science, the increase in popularity of soybean oil “has coincided with an alarming escalation in metabolic conditions like diabetes, insulin resistance, and obesity, and a new study indicates that this may be down to the way that soybean oil causes genetic changes in the brain.”

Writing in the journal Endocrinology, scientists sought to understand how soybean oil impacts the expression of genes in the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that regulates metabolism, inflammation and neurological issues.

Mice were split into three groups, with one receiving soybean oil, one receiving soybean oil with linoleic acid removed and one receiving a diet rich in coconut oil.

Soybean oil was found to modify the expression of around 100 different genes in the hypothalamus, including some associated with schizophrenia, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease.

The gene most affected was one that codes for the production of a hormone called oxytocin, the so-called love hormone, disruptions to which have been linked to depression and autism.

The gene also plays an integral role in regulating body weight and glucose metabolism. Mice that were fed soybean oil developed glucose intolerance, while those fed on coconut oil encountered no such problems.

Researchers found that removing both linoleic acid and stigmasterol from the soybean oil produced no difference in how it negatively impacted the mice.

While further research is necessary to pin down the ingredient in soybean oil causing these harmful effects, study author Poonamjot Deol of the University of California, Riverside was confident in declaring, “If there’s one message I want people to take away, it’s this: reduce consumption of soybean oil.”

Meanwhile, there continues to be a certain *type* of person in our society who is extremely enthusiastic about the consumption of soy products.

ANOTHER In-N-Out Burger Shut Down For Refusing To Be ‘Vaccine Police’

The Burger chains are being punished for refusing to ‘segregate’ their customers

A second chain of In-N-Out Burger has been closed down by county authorities in California after it refused to go along with enforcing proof of vaccination orders.

The Washington Times reports that the restaurant in Pleasant Hill has been indefinitely closed by Contra Costa County health officials after ignoring orders to verify vaccine status or proof of a negative COVID-19 test among diners.

The report notes that the restaurant did display mandated signage detailing the requirements, but has refused to enforce the mandate.

Other chains of the restaurant in the area have also received warnings and fines, according to the Times.

As we previously reported, In-N-Out Burger is rebelling against what it calls the “clear overreach” of COVID-19 mandates by insisting “we refuse to be the vaccination police.”

A San Francisco branch of the burger chain was shut down on October 14 before being reopened but only for takeout and outdoor service.

In-N-Out Burger’s chief legal and business officer Arnie Wensinger said in a statement that “As a Company, In-N-Out Burger strongly believes in the highest form of customer service and to us that means serving all Customers who visit us and making all Customers feel welcome.”

Further describing the proof of vaccine mandate as a “clear governmental overreach,” as well as “intrusive, improper, and offensive,” Wensinger urged that “We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” and “It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason.”

    Video: John Oliver Attacks Cops For Resisting Vaccine Mandate; “If An Officer Wants To Quit, F**king Let Them”

    Police who disagree with being forcibly medicated are “pathetic” and “sad” “hypocrites” according to HBO host

    “Comedian” John Oliver once again used his HBO platform to shill for government vaccine mandates by verbally attacking police who are refusing to go along with forced medication, calling them “hypocrites” and saying that it’s good that the refuseniks are quitting their jobs.

    As thousands of police are standing against the mandates and walking off the job, Oliver declared Sunday that “It is true that all over the country, a small number of police officers have received disproportionate coverage after threatening to resign over COVID mandates.”

    “They framed this as a matter of individual liberty, even in cases where very little was being asked of them,” Oliver further proclaimed.

    The British host then stated “There is also the key matter of fact that the police are supposed to keep the public safe. That is the point of their jobs,” reasoning further that those who refuse to get vaccinated “don’t seem to give much of a shit about that.”

    He then cheaply invoked race in an asinine point, saying that “The constant refrain we hear from cops every time they kill an unarmed black person is ‘They should have complied with commands,’ because as long as you comply, things will supposedly go well. But that only seems to work one way.”

    “When officers are asked to follow simple rules or face consequences, a not insignificant amount of them flip their shit,” Oliver barked, continuing “You know what, if an officer wants to quit over this, fucking let them.”

    “Let the individuals who clearly don’t care about public safety stop being in charge of public safety. It’s really that simple,” Oliver continued, also describing cops filming themselves doing ‘walkie drops’ as “pathetic” and “sad”.

    Oliver also personally attacked Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara after he urged officers not to comply with the mandates.

    “Next time someone says to you, ‘Not all cops are bad,’ you can respond to them, ‘No… just their favorite ones,’” Oliver declared.

    Watch:

    Oliver’s videos are becoming increasingly hostile as he rants in favour of mass government mandates and corporate censorship with a backing track of weird canned laughter and applause, to give the impression that there is a real ignorant audience finding what he is saying funny and entertaining.

    CDC Director: Unvaccinated Police, Government Workers To Be Sent For “Education And Counseling”

    “There is a plan, should these people not want to be vaccinated”

    Published

    Appearing on Fox News Sunday, the CDC Director Rochelle Walensky declared that the Biden regime is planning to provide vaccine hesitant police and other government workers with “education and counseling” to make them “comfortable” about taking the shots.

    Walensky told Chris Wallace that “We have seen that these mandates are getting more and more people vaccinated.”

    “What we know from the police workforce is there have been more deaths from the coronavirus over the last year and a half than all other causes of death for that workforce combined,” she claimed, adding “So we believe it is very important to get these people vaccinated.”

    Then came the kicker.

    “There is a plan, should these people not want to be vaccinated, towards education and counseling to get people the information they need so that they are feeling comfortable in getting vaccinated,” Walensky declared.

    Watch:

    As we have continually noted, police and firefighters all over the U.S. have formed resistance groups against the vaccine mandates, and many officers have made videos of themselves signing off after being forced to resign.

    Washington State trooper Robert LaMay, who infamously signed off after 22 years in the job by telling Democrat Governor Jay Inslee to “kiss my ass”, has warned that the Biden administration has “awoke the sleeping giant,” and that “extreme” numbers of police are walking off the job.

    Watch:

    Former Cincinnati and Detroit police chief James Craig told Tucker Carlson last week that “This is all by design. It’s not by accident,” further declaring that Democrats forcing good cops out of their jobs is a continuation of the “utterly ridiculous defund the police” agenda.
