The typical US diet has a ratio of 1:20 of omega-3′s versus omega-6′s. This ratio should be 1:1 to help prevent most of the degenerative diseases such as heart disease, cancer, arthritis, degenerative brain diseases and autoimmune disorders. Also depression and allergies can be greatly decreased by having the right ratio. A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)has shown that by increasing the omega-3′s in the diet it is possible to cut down the risk of heart attack by 50%. The ideal diet should contain organic, nutrient dense foods that are high in vitamins and minerals.
