    Just to throw a spanner in the works of primal thinking on omega 3/6 has anyone come across these studies?

      any brains are good. Depending on what the animal was eating, it could be *great*.

      Talking to my BIL's mom, I learned that traditionally in Italy, before feeding infant rice cereal was popularized, babies were fed brains as a first food, then liver, sweetmeats and egg yolks. Interesting, eh?

I don't supplement fish oil as I think eating real food is better and less risky long term. The current fad of high dose fish oil could workout for people or we could see studies in the future showing that some people have issues. Eating real food pretty much is safer. We also know that a lot of vitamins and minerals are synergistic so I would guess that there might be other benefits in eating real food over taking supplements.

        Also bear in mind their is now a massive fish oil industry pimping their pills to people. The same industry that would be selling you low fat crap or acai berries any other day. So I would be sceptical.

        I eat a serving of oily fish every day - 3grams of omega 3 and minimise omega 6. If you eat grass fed beef, lamb or organic free range chicken and lots of veggies you should be able to get down to 1:4 pretty easily.

        I haven't been able to get the ratios better than 1:2 without massive supplements or eating nothing but red meat and fish. So I don't think the 1:1 ratio is practical without taking lots of supplements or becoming a zombie and eating brains.
        lol, the second option is always there
