Why you should be taking fish oil, omega 3's, or better yet, Krill Oil...

Some of you reading HealthBlogger still don't understand the benefits to your health of taking in large amounts of omega 3's which are high in DHA and EPA.  Our modern day American diet has 20 times the levels of omega 6 fats which are pro-inflammatory compared to omega 3's which are anti-inflammatory. 
Folks, that's 20 to one!  It should be about 1 to 1 like our paleo ancestors.

No wonder many of you are taking pain relievers much of the time.

The only way to really rectify this problem is to stop eating packaged and processed foods, fast food, and using corn, soy bean, and other vegetable oils high in omega 6.  
Even if you eat the healthy mono unsaturates like EVO, or good saturated fats like butter, coconut oil, and grass fed beef, you will still most likely be too low.  

Eskimos, before they were Americanized, ate a diet that was 80% fat, mostly from fish and whale blubber, and were extremely healthy with low heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.  We can learn from them.

Studies are showing that perhaps higher levels are even better than the recommended 3 grams a day often sited as a good daily dose.

The big questions are these:

Should we eat a lot of fish to get them?

Is purified fish oil the best way to get these important oils?

What is this Krill Oil I have been hearing about?

Our modern diet is way to high in Omega 6 fatty acids, which are pro inflammatory...
