    Default Why Your Heart Needs Linoleic Acid — Even Though Your Doctor Says Otherwise

    Dr. Robert J. Rowen
    October 11, 2013

    Many people have mistakenly maligned omega-6 fatty acids as dangerous. Instead, they've pushed the public to move toward marine oils for cardiovascular health. Many scientists have suggested that western countries should curtain their intake of omega-6 oils. But another group of scientists has found otherwise.

    The authors of this study essentially hit, almost verbatim, the teachings of my fatty acid mentor, Prof. Brian Peskin, on omega-6 fatty acids. They critically examined the effects of adulterated and unadulterated forms of omega-6 on cardiovascular outcomes. They went further. They looked at the much maligned arachidonic acid connection to linoleic acid (LA), the real essential omega-6 oil.

    The problem as I understand it is not the consumption of Omega 6 oils but the gross over consumption.

    Exactly Aaltrude! And they usually do it in the form of GMO vegetable oils that are rancid and highly processed.
