In short, yes. So does avocado. Omega 6 linoleic acid suppresses the thyroid http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.co...uppresses.html

It increases inflammation leading to a disruption in leptin signaling and hepatic insulin resistance. Not fun. Nobody has to or should try to eliminate all linoleic acid but I definitely wouldn't go overboard on it.
I am quite unpolpular for my views on almonds, walnuts, and the like, but there isn't a difference between linoleic acid molecules whether they be from hemp seeds or soybean oil. What there is a difference in is the amount of fats that are oxidized, leading to even more problems. What some nuts have is vitamin e and magnesium, which you should make sure to get from other sources.
Macedemia nuts don't appear to be as problematic.
