Omega 6 fats may minimize type 2 diabetes

The experiment was conducted on 39,740 adults from ten countries to determine their levels of linoleic acid and arachidonic acid, 4,347 out of which developed diabetes over time. Still those who possessed excessive levels of blood omega -6 markers had a very less chance of advancing type 2 diabetes. To get round this, the researchers only looked at studies which measured levels of omega-6 molecules in the blood.

The studies included a total of 39,740 adults aged 49-76 years from 10 countries, including the US, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Finland, Australia, Iceland, the Netherlands, Taiwan, and Sweden.

"This is striking evidence", says senior author Prof. Dariush Mozaffarian, of the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University in Middlesex County, MA. The people included in the study were predominantly healthy and they were not given any certain instruction on what to consume.
