Cut Down On Omega-6s

You can make the cells of your body less inflammatory by eating more omega-3s, and decreasing your ratio of omega-6s to omega-3s (in your diet and, consequently, in the cells of your body). In order to achieve the optimal 4:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, we have to not only increase our consumption of omega-3 fatty acids, but also decrease our consumption of omega-6 fatty acids. Avoid overusing rich sources of omega-6 fatty acids like corn, cottonseed, safflower, sunflower, sesame, and peanut oils, margarine, and prepackaged foods or processed foods with a long shelf life.
