Fatty acids - important but little considered
Oils and fats in our diet play a central role in our health. There are good and bad fatty acids, good and bad fatty acid ratios, chemically processed and natural products.
Strong heating, chemical hardening and the use of unfavorable fatty acid ratios can result in health risks that can manifest themselves as serious illnesses years later.
The more natural oils and fats are, the healthier and easier they are to digest. The human metabolism can produce some fatty acids itself, others are essential food components for us.
Fish oils play a central role in brain metabolism, among other things, which is why fish that are not at the end of the food chain, should be on every menu.
