Follow-Up: Fat and Inflammation 

I had a very long, detailed post about two studies involving dietary fat and GI inflammation. Blogger, however, did not like it.

So, we get the short version:

Women who consume high amounts of n-6 fatty acids relative to n-3 ones seem to be at higher risk of Dry Eye Syndrome whereas overall higher consumption of n-3 fatty acids seems to reduce risks. Eat your fish and veggies, ladies.

UW researchers have found that one isomer of conjugated linoleic acid, a protein found in cows milk, inhibits COX-2. This could have significant benefits for inflammatory diseases and cancer. Cool. "Check out my moustache."
