As you may have heard me mention in other posts, most people's diets are severely skewed in their Omega 6/Omega 3 ratio. While a very low ratio (at least 4:1) of Omega 6:Omega 3 is recommended for optimal health, most Westernized adults get closer to 15:1-16.7:1 in their diets. The ratio of 4:1 correlates to a 70% drop in mortality, while a ratio of 2.5:1 lowered rectal cancer proliferation. It's understandable that we get so many omega 6's-- they're in pretty much everything the standard American diet yields, from nuts and seeds to meat and processed foods. So where, then, does one get one's Omega 3's?
