Thank You S.W. Fowkes [ BHT MAN ] for joining this very important forum. I just perused your updated free and online "The BHT Book" here:
This is a " MUST READ " for EVERYONE involved in the ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS community. Steve discusses BHT and MUCH more in his updated FREE book. The politics and such that prevent BHT and OTHER low cost treatments from ever getting the attention they deserve and so much more. There is helpful information there for ALL of us. Mr. Fowkes has devoted his life to all this.
And, unlike me, Mr. Fowkes IS a highly educated man. More than that he is obviously more intelligent than I am. He in every way lives up to the ideals set forth by TED.
I only wish to find this one WHO toxicology report statement about the metabolism of BHT that details how BHT is altered and then " readily absorbed ". A tremendous amount of research has been done on BHT. To establish how BHT is altered in the digestive processes was a very difficult task. Very few people seem to be aware of that research. I will find that report and post that portion of these VERY long WHO BHT toxicology reports or report. There are many such WHO reports to dig through. I will find it and post it if I can. Keep the faith. Earth Clinic is a beacon of HOPE in our troubled world….Oscar
I found the report I was looking for. There are others with more complex and confusing statements available at ” inchem “. I will post the desired statement with a link to the full report:
BHT is readily absorbed. Some deposition in adipose tissue bee been described following high dosage in the rat, and this may cause increased stability of the extracted perineal fat.1 The metabolism of BHT is complicated by the presence of the butyl groups on each side of the hydroxyl. Preliminary modification is necessary before conjugation can occur. This takes the form of either oxidation of one of the butyl groups to a 2-hydroxy-2:2-dimethyl-2-ethyl group, or oxidation of the methyl group to a carboxy acid. The former yields glucuronide conjugates, while the latter becomes conjugated with glucuronic acid or glycine. Some of the oxidized material is also excreted unconjugated.2,3

I hope this works. The importance is that: This statement is very clear about BHT being readily absorbed as is. There is NO need to dissolve BHT in ANYTHING. Many people seem confused about that. Also, like I said: oxidation occurs in those tert-butyl groups and a carboxy acid groupforms at the methyl group. And a carboxy aacid can combine with a [ NH2 ] group in a dehydration reaction to form a peptide bond. Or am I wrong about that? Also: would this reaction require an enzyme or not? …Oscar
Oscar states that BHT does not need to be dissolved in oil to work. This is true for the majority of people. However, a small minority of people report that they got better results when they did dissolve BHT in oil. I suspect that those people (1) had problems with their bile, or (2) had surgery to remove their gall bladders, or (3) were on a low-fat diet, or (4) were consuming a high-fiber diet and had extremely short bowel transit time, or (5) were consuming BHT as coarse crystals (poor surface area for dissolving). Each of these problems is easily remedied by alternatives to dissolving BHT in oil. But dissolving BHT in refined coconut oil (10-15% by weight) may be easier on a lifestyle basis, assuming that you do not have to put it into capsules to "get it down."
Anybody having personal experience with this topic, please post it here or send me an email at steve at projectwellbeing dot com. BTW, my BHT Book is a free download from the steve page at the Project Wellbeing website. I update it every 2-3 years, so be sure to download the latest version. or update the version you already downloaded.
