comment Why is duck fat less saturated than cow fat?
I can't reply in-full at the moment, but yes. There are plenty of advantages. Saturated fat is (slightly) more energy-dense, makes cell walls more rigid (bad in a cold environment - like polar waters), and have higher melting points (which also means they can insulate better).

comment Is Diabetes sex linked disease
@MuhammadRafique - The genetic components for Type II would be mostly autosomal, though if I recall correctly it's development is more prevalent in women so there may be some sex-linked genetic factors, but I have not read anything directly stating that.
