n-3 fatty acids as precursors for active metabolic substances: dissonance between expected and observed events

n-3 fatty acids as precursors for active metabolic substances: dissonance between expected and observed events

Journal of Internal Medicine. Supplement 731: 11-20

It is hypothesized that many diseases are associated with an overproduction of eicosanoids from the n-6 acid, arachidonic acid (20:4n-6), and the formation and function of these n-6 eicosanoids can be antagonized by dietary n-3 fats. This hypothesis provides a basis for evaluating the benefits and risks of including various amounts of n-3 and n-6 fats in the diet.
