Biofilms fed by polyunsaturated oils
Bacteria within a biofilm can have different properties from free-floating bacteria The dense, protected environment of the film allows bacteria to interact in various ways. This type of environment increases resistance to detergents and antibiotics.

Biofilms are common in nature but in industrial environments biofilms can develop clogs in pipes and and cause corrosion. Biofilms on floors and counters can make sanitation difficult but biofilms can also be harnessed for constructive purposes. Many sewage treatment plants pass waste water over biofilms grown on filters, which extract and digest harmful organic compounds... (1)


Microbial biofilms can pose a health problem for someone requiring indwelling medical devices. Biofilms can be difficult or impossible to treat with antimicrobial agents. Although medical devices differ widely in design and use,  specific factors determine susceptibility of a device to biofilm formation. For example, duration of use, number and type of organisms exposed to, flow rate and composition of the medium in or on the medical device, construction material, and conditioning films all influence biofilm formation...

I recently posted some information from the Allergy Research newsletter about biofilms. In that article they talked about breaking down biofilms with nattokinase or lumbrokinase and how this would greatly help release the heavy metals from the body and would help uncover the infections so that the immune system could get at the microbes.

Here is a follow-up from another article that says polyunsaturated fats are used in biofilms. (The article's main topic is the use of a saturated fat called steric acid in vitamin pills.)

Excert from Health & Wellness News from Byron Richards

Biofilms are germ gangs. They assemble based on a quorum-sensing signal, like a bell tolling in the field telling farmers to come to town and pick up weapons and go to war. Biofilms in your digestive tract, such as Candida albicans biofilms or other bacterial biofilms are extremely problematic to human health.

These biofilm gangs need a fuel source to keep reproducing and growing. That fuel source is never a saturated fat because there is no point of biochemistry interaction in a saturated fat.

For example, a Candida albicans biofilm fuels its reproduction based on your intake of highly polyunsaturated fatty acids. This means that if you eat a bag of potato chips, corn chips, or French fries and you have a Candida biofilm, you just poured gas on the fire. Candida inserts oxygen molecules into the unsaturated bonds of the fatty acids (the more unsaturated bonds the better from Candida’s point of view) forming a highly toxic inflammatory signal called an oxylipin. Oxylipins are reproductive growth factors for the biofilm. It is technically impossible to insert an oxygen molecule into a saturated fat, which is why it is not possible for stearic acid to promote biofilm growth.

The claim that stearic acid causes biofilms if a blatant lie. Promoting such a false concept casts considerable doubt on the integrity and intelligence of those making and forwarding these statements.
