Omega 6 Linoleic Acid Study Published

Just published in British Medical Journal:

In this cohort, substituting dietary linoleic acid in place of saturated fats increased the rates of death from all causes, coronary heart disease, and cardiovascular disease. An updated meta-analysis of linoleic acid intervention trials showed no evidence of cardiovascular benefit. These findings could have important implications for worldwide dietary advice to substitute omega 6 linoleic acid, or polyunsaturated fats in general, for saturated fats.

Yeah, I'm not surprised by this. Too many Omega-6's cause inflammation. That's why we need to reduce them and increase our Omega-3's to balance the ration. Inflammation ultimately causes disease and death over time.
