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.

Bob,

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 donīt 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 ???§!
