The balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in a diet will impact the eventual balance of the precursors of pro-inflammatory eicosanoids and pro-resolution resolvins. Many of the chronic diseases associated with aging—heart disease, arthritis, and cancer, for example—are strongly connected with eicosanoid imbalances. From The Zone and “Omega-3 Fatty Acids,” by Dr. Barry Sears.

A model is a container of Modern Science. Science is a branch of knowledge, in particular objective knowledge. It possesses objectivity by expressing relationships, AKA experiments, only among facts, where a fact is an observation reduced to measurements and compared with standards. A model is an expression of an arrangement of facts that exposes, or seeks to expose, a pattern among variables or parameters expressed as records of facts, identifying candidate variables as independent and others as dependent variables, or, more generally, as Causes and Effects.

Seed oils high in linoleic acid contribute to atherosclerotic risk via impacts on inflammation, oxidative stress, and other downstream effects; conversely, omega-3s suppress some of these same pro-inflammatory mechanisms.
