Sorry, you did ask for studies....Now I'm not assuming any of these studies are on nuts. Any of you who regularly look at research realize that whole foods are rarely studied (except in epidemiological studies), so looking at the constituents of nuts (O6 being one) and seeing the data on upper limits for O6 before incurring negative health response....well make your own call.... but, there may be more to it.
I understand this is a reductionist pattern of science attempting to resolve a more holistic matter, but lets face it ...this is how science is done. If a nut is greater than the sum of its parts (which I think it is) then don't worry so much....For instance nuts tend to contain certain vitamins (like vitamin E) that in in other trials have been shown to eliminate at least one of the negative health aspects of higher O6/pufa diet. http://www.fasebj.org/content/13/15/2138.short
From what I see pufa can be bad....but particularly from nuts or in the accompaniment of good antioxidants?...not so certain.

Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.
Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
Dommers must be a spambot he copied my post. But I will take that advice Peril, thanks.
Is the wheat free fermented soy that tamari sauce?
For those of you reading who take fermented cod liver oil, I'm wondering how much you take? There were a couple comments in th Real Food Summit about it not necessarily being a good thing, though whether that came from others besides Matt Stone/Ray Peat followers, I can't recall.
I just got some FCLO/HVB (blue ice from Green Pastures) for my 9 yr old son and 93 yr old Father. I'd like them to take a tsp during the week (breaking for the weekend) and perhaps take a month off here or there. I'm thinking it might be better and more important in the winter months anyway. But what's your regime? I have the gel, btw, as it's somewhat cheaper. If I could afford it, I'd take it myself, too! But I'm thinking a tsp is not a huge amount and shouldn't overload their systems. Since it's fermented and refrigerated I don't think there is a concern about it being rancid.
The change in thinking is the idea that "more is better", or that you have to calculate your O6 and supplement UP to that ratio with O3. These are the incorrect. If your concern is ratio just eliminating seed oils and other non primal foods reduces your O6 enough to where you could either eat a bit of fish OR do a little smart supplementing.
