The reason I hear most for why grains are bad is that they contain anti nutrients. Grains are seeds and since it is disadvantageous for them to be eaten (they can't reproduce that way) they evolved to contain anti nutrients to stop animals from... (more)

If livestock fed a grain based diet have more stored n-6 PUFA, I would imagine this might also apply to humans fed a high-grain diet. Does anyone have any links to evidence for this? Thanks

Grain is high in omega-6s, it's not that it is promoting omega-6 storage. And it's more of a lack of omega-3s in the diet that causes low omega-3s. CAFO cows, pigs and chickens don't eat grass, so they don't get a lot of dietary omega-3s.
