This (older) newspaper article says not much of the omega-3 was lost in water packed fish, more in oil packed fish since the omega-3 is oil soluable and more leeched out into the oil used in canning. (more)

danno, unfortunately, the krill oil business is almost a monopoly. There is one firm in Canada that effectively is the only mass volume producer, and all of the name brands you buy in a store are in fact just relabeling that one company's oil.... (more)

A good fraction of it is ALA, the omega-3 not given enough credit by paleo folks (because it's the plant-sourced omega-3).

If you don't eat fatty fish often, some supplementation is probably a good idea. A gram of fish oil per day over a week would add up to the total 2 6-ounce servings of salmon.

@CD - Note that the darker your skin is, the more sun you need for vitamin D production, due to melanin antagonizing the process. The sun is a harsh mistress to black appartment-dwellers. :(

It's harder to imbalance omega-6s and omega-3s when you're not consuming tons of extracted vegetable oils daily. Meat, veggies, olive or coconut oils... You'd be hard pressed to get worse than 10:1 o6:3. If it's a whole food, I don't think we... (more)

As the title states, does an excess of omega 6 fats in and of itself cause inflammation, or rather does it simply facilitate an overly aggressive inflammatory response to harmful stimuli?
