I would like to underline your mention that it is the oxidized oils that cause problems in the circulatory system, whether it is veins, arteries or the heart. When cholesterol (or proteins or phospholipids), as an emulsifying agent, is transporting damaged (oxidized) oils in the blood, serious damage occurs. The lining of the circulatory system is scarred. From there it is down hill, as the body attempts to cover and then repair the scar, but in the process you have plaque, occlusion, loss of flexibility, etc. It's a downward spiral. All from eating oxidized fats, whether monounsaturated like olive oil, or polyunsaturated like fish oil. Cholesterol is only a transport mechanism. It does no damage by itself. It takes the ruined oil to cause the damage.
An eight-ounce oyster has 18 grams of protein — making gains easy while upping your t-levels. Oysters are rich in zinc, a t-boosting mineral. From food, you get about 10 milligrams of zinc each day, but the body only absorbs 2-3 milligrams of it — putting you at risk for a deficiency. The common cold is actually a symptom of low zinc levels along with a low sex-drive, which is an indication of low-t levels. When low zinc levels are present, the pituitary gland limits the release of the luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormones; they are responsible for triggering T production in the testes. This then decrease the amount of androgen binding sites and free testosterone in the blood stream.
But I'm not more aggressive—a behavior change often tied to testosterone. That's not surprising to Robert Sapolsky, ., a neuroendocrinologist at Stanford University and a leading researcher on stress and behavior. "It's really not the case that testosterone 'causes' aggressive behavior," he says. "Instead, it makes the brain more sensitive to social cues that trigger aggression. And in support of that, a guy's testosterone level isn't a very good predictor of how likely he is to be aggressive."
