My dietician recommended taking an Omega 3 & 6 supplement. I know that they are really good for you, and that it's hard to get enough of them in your diet. I have a vague recollection of hearing that most people have too much Omega 6 in their diet, but not enough Omega 3. So I got a fish oil capsule for Omega 3. The margarine I use has added Omega 3 and 6.
My questions are:
1) What is the difference between Omega 3 and 6?
2) Is Omega 6 (in excess) bad for you? How/why?
