One reason for the imbalance is the use of refined vegetable oils containing mostly omega-6 fatty acids. But another reason has to do with the way we farm. Eggs from a supermarket contain mostly omega-6 fatty acids, but eggs from chickens allowed to graze and eat insects and weeds, or given flax or fish meal in their feed, will have a nice balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. The same situation pertains to salmon. Farmed salmon has much more omega-6 but wild salmon has a nice balance. Many books recommend salmon as a source of omega-3 fatty acids but do not mention that only wild salmon provides a good balance. Similarly with dark green vegetables. Those raised organically have a nice balance of omega-6 and omega-3 but those raised with commercial fertilizers have mostly omega-6.

Why Grass-Fed is Best More Fat-Soluble Vitamins – A, D, E, K - in the fat. More CLA - anti-cancer & weight loss compound - in the fat. More minerals - mostly in the fat. To get the benefits of grass feeding... … you must cook with the fat! And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be satisfied. Deut 11:15

Agent Orange <ul><li>Agent Orange was the code name for a herbicide developed for the military, primarily for use in tropical climates. Although the genesis of the product goes back to the 1940's, serious testing for military applications did not begin until the early 1960's.The purpose of the product was to deny an enemy cover and concealment in dense terrain by defoliating trees and shrubbery where the enemy could hide . </li></ul><ul><li>The product "Agent Orange" (a code name for the orange band that was used to mark the drums it was stored in, was principally effective against broad-leaf foliage, such as the dense jungle-like terrain found in Southeast Asia.The product was tested in Vietnam in the early 1960's, and brought into ever widening use during the height of the war (1967-68), though it's use was diminished and eventually discontinued in 1971. </li></ul><ul><li>Agent Orange was a 50-50 mix of two chemicals, known conventionally as 2,4,D and 2,4,5,T . The combined product was mixed with kerosene or diesel fuel and dispersed by aircraft, vehicle, and hand spraying. An estimated 19 million gallons of Agent Orange were used in South Vietnam during the war. </li></ul><ul><li>The earliest health concerns about Agent Orange were about the product's contamination with TCDD, or dioxin. TCDD is one of a family of dioxins, some found in nature, and are cousins of the dibenzofurans and pcb's.The TCDD found in Agent Orange is thought to be harmful to man. In laboratory tests on animals, TCDD has caused a wide variety of diseases, many of them fatal. TCDD is not found in nature , but rather is a man-made and always unwanted byproduct of the chemical manufacturing process. The Agent Orange used in Vietnam was later found to be extremely contaminated with TCDD. Dow and Monsanto were sued and paid claims. </li></ul>"Patches", The Air Force C-123 that took the most enemy ground fire of any aircraft flying herbicide missions in Vietnam (U.S. Air force Photo)
