Re: Omega 3, Omega 6

Omega 3s and Omega 6s vary in many different ways. Most Americans eat way too many Omega-6s in their diets from fatty, fried foods that we are all so used to in our busy lives. Eating too many Omega-6s can lead to inflammation which leads to a higher risk of chronic diseases. Omega-3s can be found in different types of fish, vegetable oils such as canola oil, milled flax seed and fish and flax oils.
