Quoted Text
Extra Omega-3s. Meat from grass-fed animals has two to four times more omega-3 fatty acids than meat from grain- fed animals. Omega-3s are called "good fats" because they play a vital role in every cell and system in your body. For example, of all the fats, they are the most heart-friendly. People who have ample amounts of omega-3s in their diet are less likely to have high blood pressure or an irregular heartbeat. Remarkably, they are 50 percent less likely to suffer a heart attack.[3] Omega-3s are essential for your brain as well. People with a diet rich in omega-3s are less likely to suffer from depression, schizophrenia, attention deficit disorder (hyperactivity), or Alzheimer's disease.[4]

Bob,

You should check out a recent article in a naturopathic magazine called The Townsend Letter, on the "Peskin Protocol" of Brian Peskin.  He talks about the importance of getting a medicinal daily intake of 2.5 to 1 ratio of omega-6's to omega-3's.  This compensates for the excessive levels of poor quality omega-6's that are a routine part of daily diet but which, I'm told, will raise the ratio of omega-6's to 3's to what Peskin says is the optimum final ratio of 7.5 to 1.

Now, perhaps Peskin is wrong, but this is really my only exposure to EFA nutrition-ology, if you will.

Quoted from Ronagon
Bob,

what Peskin says is the optimum final ratio of 7.5 to 1.

Now, perhaps Peskin is wrong, but this is really my only exposure to EFA nutrition-ology, if you will.


I have seen many recommendations of optimum final ratio ranging from 1:1 to 4:1 or even as high as 6:1 but never as higher than that. My own ratio (based on inputing my diet at Nutritiondata.com) is around 3.7:1 plus or minus.

Quoted from Mercola.com
Normally a good ratio for omega 6:3 in fish is 2 or 3 to 1. The lower the better. Grassfed beef from Grassfed Organics is much higher in Omega 3 than fish, with a 6:3 ratio of 0.16 to 1. This information is from a study done at Iowa State University in August 2001.

Sounds high.
I read that the official danish approach here was
MAX 4 to 1
-it was part of an article when they had looked at kids in Greenland ( Inuits)
who sadly got sooo much processed biscuits etc that their ratio - (even with far more fish than danish kids was around)  20:1 ! ( Inuits in Greenland don“t get many veggies and they have cut down on wild meats and fish as well- so here comes american sodas and ready made stuff
Just shows me that modern food is really dangerous.

Last time I checked Nutritiondata.com my data went from 1.7:1  and 3:1 thought that was pretty good
When I used to be a vegetarian and had  baked stuffs, margarine, polysaturated oils it was 15:1 ....and I thought I was healthy ???§!
