Omega 6 Fats: An American Heart Association Fallacy

Mainstream nutritional recommendations are often misleading or erroneous:
The research upon which the American Heart Association based their 'eat-your-omega-6-fat' advisory, is fatally flawed, according to the results of a meta-analysis study, which showed that a steady diet of omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids increases the risk of heart disease and death, especially for women [1]. British J Nutr. Dec 2010.
