The High Omega 3 Low Omega 6 Regimen

What are Omega 3 and Omega 6?
Omega 3 and omega 6 are both fats.  Specifically, they are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). 
It’s important to be mindful of how much omega 3 and omega 6 we eat and drink, because these fats are incorporated into all the cells of the body, both normal and cancer cells.

How to Approximate Omega 6 from Food Labels

On the Nutrition Facts label, look under “Fats”.

See if it lists the “Polyunsaturated Fats” (PUFA).  Omega 3 and Omega 6 are both polyunsaturated fats.  Most labels will not list out the amount of Omega 6.  Since most foods have higher amounts of Omega 6 compared to Omega 3, I assume the total amount of “Polyunsaturated Fats” is the amount of Omega 6 in that food.
