Mice fed sunflower oil can run faster

As my cardiovascular health isn’t all that it could be I avoid sunflower oil like poison instead using rapeseed oil in the probably mistaken belief that it is healthier for the old ticker.

Today I read that mice fed sunflower oil that is higher in polyunsaturates quickly turn in to champion runners. I knew there must be a reason why the Forty Plus cycling club, probably the slowest bunch of cyclists ever gathered together, can drop me on every climb. I have been cooking my chips in the wrong sort of fat!
