More on Omega 3's and Omega 6's - Fish

I just thought that I would do a chart of Omega 3's and Omega 6's in different types of fish, especially since most fish is very high in omega 3's. It was pretty interesting. First off check out Linkthe omega 6's in fish sticks verses the omega 3's. Crazy, isn't it. That explains why so many people have health problems, eating boxed stuff that they have no idea what is in it. How these companies can take something that can be so healthy for you and turn in into something so bad for you I have no idea.

Also another thing to point out is the difference between tuna in oil and tuna in water. Tuna in oil is way higher in omega 6's, which is because of the oil.

Something else to keep in mind is just because something you buy in the store says on it that it is high in omega 3's does not necessarily mean that you will benefit from it. If it is high in omega 3's but much higher in omega 6's, such as for example tuna in oil, you are not going to benefit from this like you would tuna in water. So really when it comes down to it you have to do your own research.

Once again all my info came from NutritionData.com
