A civilization stands or falls on its oils. Every cell in your body 
has a protective wall of two layers of interlocked oil molecules. 
This cell wall determines the health of the cell, by admitting or 
repelling molecules.

For healthy cells, animals require fats and oils in their diet. 
Humans require fats, oil and cholesterol for healthy life and clear 
thinking. The human brain is 25 percent cholesterol.

Every civilization has a significant source of dietary oil. 
Neanderthals ate meat fat and pine nuts. American small farmers 
during America's agricultural centuries grew cannabis, flax, 
sunflowers and nut trees, and ate egg yolks and butterfat. Americans 
today eat GMO chicken fat, GMO butter, GMO bacon, and, increasingly, 
GMO canola oil. Alaskans love salmon fat and muktuk. But king salmon, 
an outstanding fish oil source, is being mismanaged out of existence.

Alaska people need healthy oil. An oilseed crop well-suited to grow 
in the Alaska Interior is hemp. Alaska farmers and growers should 
obtain hemp seed in bulk from Canada; legislators should clear the 
way for young farmers to acquire land for hemp seed under a 
homesteading program. State and private investors should invest in 
bulk oil presses and bottles, and start production in 2015 of this 
crucial food.

How crucial fats are may be seen in how terribly bodies break down 
without high quality dietary fat. GMO fat turns cell walls to mush. 
Look around and you see people aching, hobbling, bent over, injured 
and befuddled on an unprecedented scale. Grow hemp seed, Alaska.
