    Interesting post. Omega-3 fatty acids may be more relevant to our well being than saturated fats. Here in Europe, trans fats are not an issue anymore either. I think dr. Danaei has put omega-3 fats nicely into perspective in his review article ( ). Omega-3 fats are more significant to US residents than poor PUFA/SFA ratio and equally important as trans fats.

    I'd like to read your or other dietitian's post focusing on omega-6 fatty acids. I suspect that this front is not throughly enough studied.

    Omega 3 fats lower inflammation in the body, and omega 6 fats increase inflammation. When animals eat grass, we receive omega 3 fats as a result of consuming them, and when they eat corn or grains we receive omega 6 fats. Thank you for sharing the article.
