    My feeling is that it depends on the source, since saturated fat can readily absorb (and release) the toxins ingested by the original host organism, thus passing on in the food chain. For this reason, an avocado is usually a healthier source of saturated fat than factory-farmed animal products. Some of the toxins occur in very small quantities, but we know that minuscule doses (ppm) of hormones can have dramatic effect on our bodies, why not toxins, especially those engineered to ensure shelf life? The constant onslaught from gmo, preservatives, pesticides, growth hormones, antibiotics, etc. is an insult to our immune system which many then incur hyperactivity (inflammation) and lead to the lifestyle diseases so common today, but largely absent from the blue zones.
