PEOPLE MAKE DIFFERENT FOOD CHOICES
Traditional ethnic foods have different balances of essential fatty acids. The foods lead to different proportions (25% to 85%) of omega-6 stored in body HUFA. Remember to NIX 6 and EAT 3.

OMEGA 3 & 6 EFA LINK FOOD TO HEALTH
Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) are stored in the body as highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA)  that form potent hormones that alter health. Many co-morbidities have more n-6 than n-3 HUFA.

EFA RESEARCH STORIES

DIETARY GUIDELINES
The USDA and the HHS make Dietary Guidelines about food intake. Omega-6 in the absence of omega-3 nutrients has a very narrow therapeutic window. Lower risk of harm links to lower proportions of n-6 in HUFA.  Get a healthy balance of essential fatty acids as you NIX6 and EAT3.
