OFAN What are essential fats?
Western diets are very high in fatty acid, omega-6, that includes LA, AA, and GLA. The average American diet contains a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 of about 20 to 1. More research needs to be done, but current studies indicate the ideal ratio may be as low as 4-2 to 1! So for optimal health, we need to get more omega-3 fatty acids in our diets.
