NIX the 6 and Eat the 3:

In conjunction with Bill Lands, renowned expert on Essential Fatty Acids (EFA), this program involves simple ways to reduce dietary intake of omega-6 and increase intake of omega-3. Many inflammatory disease processes are enhanced by omega-6 while omega 3 mitigates with its anti-inflammatory properties. Diseases with omega-6 mediated inflammatory processes include: Heart disease, depression, hypertension (high blood pressure), arthritis, high cholesterol, pain, asthma, headache, cancers, and more. Program length is variable and includes a biomarker outcome measure. See http://efaeducation.org/ to learn more about Bill Lands' decades of EFA research at the NIH, University of Illinois College of Medicine, and University of Michigan School of Medicine.
