Facts About Fatty Acids

I've told you a lot about omega-3 fatty acids, the "good fats" found in fish, nuts, and flax seeds. But did you know there is also another type of essential fat, called omega-6 fatty acid? These fats are found in most seeds and nuts, as well as seed and nut oils. Soybean oil, for instance, contains omega-6s, so these fats are found in many processed foods.
