This concept is not complicated. In fact it is really quite simple. Omega 6 fatty acids are inflammatory. Omega 3 fatty acids are anti- inflammatory. You need to search out sources of Omega 3 fatty acids. By contrast we are figuratively drowning in Omega 6 fatty acids. They are everywhere in foods that we eat. They are in smack foods, in pastries, in bread, in corn oil and in many other foods,
Our ancient ancestors who were hunter gatherers ate a diet that had at a ratio of 1 to 1 for Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids This was a very healthy diet, and it was easy to follow because in those days there were few sources of Omega 6 fatty acids and many more sources of Omega 3
Those of us who eat the SAD (Standard American Diet) have reversed this ratio with Omega 6 far outweighing Omega 3. The ratio may be as high as 16, 32 or even 64 to one favoring Omega6. Changing this ration will be a problem for many of us because we are so accustomed to eating our junk foods and snacks, but the results will be well worth the effort.
