omega-6

definition of omega-6: Essential fatty acid that is found in most processed oils such as corn oil and peanut oil. Omega-6 fatty acids are critical for brain function and are found in over-abundance in most diets. Excess of omega-6 fatty acids in the diet is thought to contribute to inflammation and other conditions, and possibly autism. Many nutritionists recommend a ratio of 4:1 omega-6 fatty acids to omega-3 fatty acids. Most American diets have a ratio of about 15 to 1.
