Abstract

A recent editorial in the journal Open Heart suggests many of us have it all wrong when it comes to the balance of fats we eat. The authors urge a return to equal amounts of specific types of fats known as omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in order to help combat global obesity. The paper reflects a recent wave of evidence supporting a revision of guidelines around dietary fat, including in Australia.
