Dangers of an Omega-6 to Omega-3 Imbalance
Scientists studying the diets of our ancestors have made an interesting and shocking finding: In ancient times, people ate a diet that adhered much more closely to an ideal, balanced 4:1 ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.1 Today, the average intake of omega-6s is vastly higher. The amount of omega-6 fats ingested compared to omega-3s has surged as high as 20 to 1.1 This imbalance in our fatty-acid intake is a contributor to the most common age-related diseases. The problem with modern diets is excess consumption of omega-6 fats and deficient intake of omega-3s. A combined..
