How Much Omega-3 vs Omega-6

All the so-called “nutrition experts” telling us to eat unsaturated fats instead of saturated fats are missing the point. There are natural saturated fats that are perfectly healthy to eat… and manufactured unsaturated fats that are at the root cause of many of our health problems. That’s because it’s the ratio of omega-6 fats and omega-3 fats in our modern diet that’s actually the problem. Let me explain… Omega Fatty Acids In Our Diet Omega-6s are fatty acids commonly found in vegetable oils. That includes safflower, sunflower, corn, cottonseed, sesame and soybean. They’re also in salad dressings, shortening and margarine. Omega-3s are the fatty acids that are found in cold-water fish and grass-fed meats. Omega-3 and Omega-6 For Good Health You need both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for good health. However… their amount and ratio in your diet have important physiological impacts on your health.1 Our ancestors had a ratio of 1:1 in their diets. That means for every bit of omega-6 they consumed, they also ate the same amount of omega-3s. Causes Of Health Problems In our modern world, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats we eat has skyrocketed to as much as 20 to 1. And it’s causing a whole host of health problems. You’ve probably heard me give the advice to eat grass-fed beef, but if you have to eat grain-fed beef, to trim off the fat first. Causes Of Health Problems That’s bec...

In this study, we show that calorie restriction is protective against age-related increases in senescence and microglia activation and pro-inflammatory cytokine expression in an animal model of aging. Further, these protective effects mitigated age-related decline in neuroblast and neuronal production, and enhanced olfactory memory performance, a behavioral index of neurogenesis in the SVZ. Our results support the concept that calorie restriction might be an effective anti-aging intervention in the context of healthy brain aging. Greater Modest Activity in Late Life Correlates with Lower Incidence of Dementia ...

One of the reasons why the Wheat Belly lifestyle is so spectacularly effective for restoring health, losing weight, and turning back the clock a decade or two is because we reject the flawed logic of conventional nutritional advice. There is a long list of reasons why conventional nutritional advice gets it so wrong, from logical blunders, to relying on flawed observational evidence (rather than clinical trials), to getting too cozy with Big Food companies like Coca Cola and Kraft. Let’s discuss a common and widely-held blunder in logic that is applied over and over again in nutrition: If something bad is replaced by...

In autoimmunity, the immune system becomes dysregulated and mistakenly attacks portions of the patient's own biochemistry. The broad variety of autoimmune conditions are differentiated from one another on the basis of exactly which structures and cells come under attack. Some autoimmune conditions are highly disabling or lethal, while others are comparative mild, but even lesser autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis still shorten life expectancy. To the degree to which autoimmunity results in increased inflammation, a shorter life is the expected outcome, even when the tissues targeted by the immune system are...

In the seven years since the original Wheat Belly book hit bookstores and turned the nutritional world topsy-turvy and millions of people have engaged in a grain-free lifestyle, many unique lessons have been learned. Even though I had engaged the practices of this lifestyle for a number of years and in thousands of people before I broadcast these ideas through books, expanding the audience to many more people yielded feedback on an enormous scale, new lessons that even surprised me. Among the new lessons learned along the way: Plantar fasciitis—I did not expect to have so many people report that this painful conditi...

This study indicates that frailty and other age-related diseases could be prevented and significantly reduced in older adults. Getting our heart risk factors under control could lead to much healthier old ages. Unfortunately, the current obesity epidemic is moving the older population in the wrong direction, however our study underlines how even small reductions in risk are worthwhile." The study analysed data from more than 421,000 people aged 60-69 in both GP medical records and in the UK Biobank research study. Participants were followed up over ten years. The researchers analysed six factors that could impa...

We presented positive initial results in Crohn’s disease at the 2016 United European Gastroenterology meeting: six of the eight patients had seen a substantial reduction in their disease activity index scores, and three were in remission from the disease. As SetPoint looks ahead, several chronic disease areas are emerging as key bioelectronic medicine therapy targets, and our company is exploring a number of these. One of our preclinical programs explores bioelectronic medicine’s potential role as a treatment for MS.   New Target: Multiple Sclerosis In late 2017, SetPoint presented positive data from a s...

The opioid epidemic of the last 20 years has served to illustrate the powerful addictive properties of anything that binds to opioid receptors of the human brain. Lives are ruined by opioid addiction, more than 100 deaths now occurring every day from overdose as people either take more and more to overcome the partial tolerance or new potent drugs like fentanyl make their way into street versions. Drugs such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl bind to the brain’s opioid receptors provoking a “high” while causing the user to desire more opioids as partial tolerance develops. And make no mistake: Much o...
