> Fats can oxidize in chain reactions, where one free radical can damage a number of fat molecules, but ingesting rancid fats doesn't lead to that happening. The damaged fat molecules go to energy production.

Why have we evolved to not want rancid food?

Oh good, thank you.
And thank you for that other info. Interesting. And helpful.
