Research Stories of Omega 3-6 Balance – How we got to “NIX6 and EAT3“.
The efaeducation website site began long ago as dialog among NIAAA/NIH research scientists in the Laboratory of Membrane Biochemistry and Biophysics. They wanted the public to have easy access to new research stories about essential fatty acids (EFA).

SCIENCE IS THE STUDY OF HOW THINGS WORK.
The list below points to key evidence that gave insight and understanding about familiar health-related problems. Eating a balance of omega-3 and omega-6 nutrients can give a healthy balance of n-3 and n-6 highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA) in tissues. We developed a simple measure  of each food item’s impact and posted over 5,000 of them on-line to help you NIX6 and EAT3.research on Omega 3-6 Balance
