Essential Fatty Acids
Omega-3 oils and omega-6 oils are competing for the same metabolic enzymes. An imbalance of these omegas creates problems to our body processes. This imbalance causes our bodies to develop a tendency towards inflammation which then creates higher rates of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, skin disorders and arthritis.
Basically, we are getting way too much omega 6 and way too little omega 3, which is putting the majority of us at an imbalance and more prone to health problems. We need to make sure we are getting a balanced amount of both omega 3 and omega 6 to keep our bodies healthy and in balance!
