Default Re: Omega 3 - no major health benefits

My initial thought on this meta-analysis is that the authors have not considered the possibility of excess omega-6 fat in the diet. AS we know, excess omega-6 fats interfere with the health benefits of omega-3 fats because they compete for the same rate-limiting enzymes (i think this is discussed in abc's EFA article?).

Intaking omega 3, is only half the battle really. Omega 3 fats will provide little if any benefit if there are excessive dietary omega-6 fats in the diet.
