Just saw a thread on FB, from another physicians blog, about the ratio between omega-6 and omega-3. Get quantum with it; it's both. The ratio is important, with respect to balance, but you still must have enough omega-3's. And not too much omega-6. In medicine we often see people trying to boil things down to ratios--i.e. T/E. IMPO, ratios can be useful for describing clinical response, but are not treatment goals in and of themselves. For instance, no matter how favorable your T/E ration, if E is too high, you will have problems. Balance is important, but the absolute value of each hormone brings its own benefits and/or detriments.
