Judging by the magnitude of natural and human resources, Nigeria is endowed with that, there is no doubt that the nation is a "sleeping giant", lulling poor leadership and his followers. All that she wants to become a great industrial country it is. However, common nouns, such as the "Third World country," "poor country", "backward people" still cling to Nigeria as leprosy.
Nigeria: Palm oil - the second Black Gold - Professor EKPA
In a recent report in Calabar, Professor Douglas Window EKPA, Professor of Industrial Organic Chemistry at the University of Calabar, said that only Nigerians can make Nigeria a beautiful country, if they believe in themselves and achieve their goals.
According to Professor EKPA, a few years ago, he and his team began research on palm oil as feedstock. "Palm oil is not only edible, but is of interest from the industrial point of view - so we decided to look at it as a raw material for industrial products in the field of paints, soaps, detergents, cosmetics and biofuels."
In addition to fatty acids, palm oil contains carotenoids, which are sources of vitamins, it also contains eight components of vitamin E (four - four tocopherols and tocotrienols), coenzyme Q10 - a very powerful antioxidant (especially to the heart muscle), other oils do not contain it. These valuable components are removed during processing of raw materials in palm oil. This means that the usefulness of palm oil is significantly reduced during processing and cleaning.
Palm oil - the most expensive oil on the world market of vegetable oils, vegetable oils are the only red on the earth (a consequence of the extremely high content of carotene), are highly resistant to auto-oxidation due to the presence of tocopherols and tocotrienols. Also, palm oil contains perhaps the most balanced composition of fatty acids than any other vegetable oil. It has almost the same composition as the organic cells - about 50 percent and 50 percent unsaturated saturated fatty
"When you take the food palm oil, you get not only food that could satisfy your hunger, but also enriches the cellular system, helping it to fight the so-called aging process." EKPA said that people get sick, or through infection or failure
cellular systems of the body caused by free radicals, which make cells weak and unable to resist the stress.
"Manifestations of anti-aging effect in the use of palm oil is observed after 10 to 15 or even 20 years.
That is why, when seen cancer, diabetes, hypertension, or age-related disease, there are not many ways to izlecheniya.K Fortunately, those who are reading this text now - already have the facts, and therefore can not grow old. Because if you can do something to protect yourself from free radicals that cause cell damage, you do it and you will not get old so quickly, "- he said.
If you look at olive oil (from the shores of the Mediterranean) or soybean oil (U.S.), palm oil yields more oil per hectare than any other oil. Consequently the cost of production is much lower. Thus, in this era of biofuels, palm oil is the best oil in terms of economic efficiency. The fetus has an outer layer that gives us palm oil and nuts, which give us the palm kernel oil from the nut. When a mixture of these two types of oils obtained from one fruit to the oil with which the utility can not be compared, no oil in the world. Thus, in terms of production costs and volumes of oil produced from one hectare plantation of palm trees, there is no material that could compete with palm oil. "
However, despite all the charm of palm oil, the death penalty caused by the Western propaganda is hanging over his head. As Professor EKPA: "As soon as we started our research - we immediately realized that the global industry of developed countries there is a negative attitude against palm oil."
"Unfortunately, this product is mainly grown in the Third World. Entering the U.S. market with soybean oil in the early 1960s led to the question of the role of polyunsaturated fatty acids in human nutrition. Americans have argued about the role of palmitic acid, which increases the cholesterol content in blood. white man just pulled from the palmitic acid oils, tested it on rats, and said, "Oh, palmitic acid increases blood cholesterol levels." But palm oil - a source not only of palmitic acid.
"There is a so-called synergetic effect. If you take all the components of palm oil and mix them together, the effect of palmitic acid to be repaid. When this happens - palm oil has the same effect on blood cholesterol levels, as well as
Olive. Later the question was raised about the good and bad cholesterol (LDL and HDL), but palm oil, by itself, does not contain cholesterol, "he said.
He continued: "In the late 1990s, researchers from Japan, Malaysia and other countries-minded U.S. and Britain have announced the results of studies that show that up to 50% of so-called bad fats come from unseen sources of food in industrialized countries: a pastry meat, sausage, eggs, milk, butter, extract, margarine, etc. "
He noted that in the process of hydrogenation of fats having trans-fats, which have served the cause of some forms of breast cancer. Egg yolk and most types of meat that we eat, contain much more cholesterol, but no one says anything about it.

"Then they began to consider the environmental dimension," Oh, you cut down so many forests that can absorb carbon dioxide to plant palm trees. But when planting soybean and olive trees, they had to clear the forest, so what is wrong with palm trees? "- He said, adding:". This is a view in perspective of the Nigerian, who grew up in the U.S. knows what global politics, and now tell you what's what. "
Free radicals are unstable electrons that can cause a chain reaction collapse in the environment around them.
Generally, free radicals attack the nearest stable molecule, and "steal" electrons from it. When collapsing the molecule loses an electron, it becomes a free radical and begins a chain reaction.
"Free radicals are highly reactive, but the body has three enzymes to deal with them. But when the radicals are too many (probably due to stress, environmental impact, etc.), the body can no longer cope with them. That's why you need an additional
intervention. Our ancestors ate no processed palm oil, which contains all the antioxidants. "
How it works:
"Vitamin E is soluble in fats. While attached to fats and moves with him, so he is not oxidized. Bad or good cholesterol is not more than cholesterol, which is simply to move the body. Cholesterol - it's not bad, until such time as it is not oxidized due to the presence of free radicals in the body. So, if you have enough antioxidants to take care of free radicals, the question of good or bad cholesterol is not raised. Palm oil contains very powerful antioxidants, so if we use All components of palm oil - we will not have these problems, "he said.
"In the process the existence of human body uses all that he sees for the restoration of the lost cells. Some cells die because they go through a lot of stress. Therefore, if you say get out of the food 50 percent saturated and 50 percent unsaturated fatty acids that make up the cell and then you start to eat something that contains almost 80 percent of unsaturated fatty acids, which means that the body does not find a sufficient number of saturated fatty acids for use in producing cells. Body will have to use unsaturated fatty acids to vopopolnit all the missing components " .
"As a result - soft skin, soft cell, etc. We have found that they are a source of some form of skin cancer, as the soft cells can not sustain much of the environment. Nature acted reasonably when she made the cells in
ratio of almost 50/50. "
