Episode Info:

A physician and expert in nutrition and in the role omega-3-fatty-acids have on our health, Dr. Artemis Simopoulos, M.D, is today’s guest interview.

Artemis shares with us why maintaining a good balance of omega-6/omega-3 fatty acids is essential to our health and well-being.

She explains the negative effects and symptoms that can result from an imbalance in the ratio.

We then find out about how the introduction of vegetable oils and grain-based animal feeds has altered our food supply and in turn our fatty acid ratios.

We also go into discussing the ideal ratio, how to test your ratio, what foods to avoid, foods high in omega-3, supplements, vegan/vegetarian diets, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
