    Is it really a 6:1 O6:O3 ratio? Where did mark get that from? According to a 16oz beef steak with fat and lean as only 2.5grams of PUFA. I am confused.

    If it's 2.5g of PUFA, then roughly 2.14g is O6 & .36g is O3, giving you the 6:1. The total amount doesn't change the ratio.

    Top it with an anchovy sauce and the ratio will be perfect

    I buy only conventional beef, mostly chuck when it's on sale, which has a ratio of 2:1 ...
