Several prospective cohort studies have examined the relationship between dietary ALA intake and the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). In a cohort of more than 45,000 U.S. men followed for 14 years, each increase in dietary ALA of 1 g/day was associated with a 16% reduction in the risk of CHD, with 3 g/day giving nearly a 50% reduction in risk (Mozaffarian et al., 2005). That's equivalent to just one teaspoon of Flax Seed Oil. Moreover, in those who ate little or no seafood, each 1 g/day increase in dietary ALA was associated with a 47% reduction in the risk of CHD (Mozaffarian et al., 2005). In a cohort of more than 76,000 U.S. women followed for ten years, those with the highest ALA intakes (above 1.4 g/day) had a risk of fatal CHD that was 45% lower than women with the lowest ALA intake (below 0.7 g/day) (Hu et al., 1999).
It has been known for many years that atopic (allergic) individuals have abnormal proportions of various polyunsaturated fatty acids in their blood. There is a greater prevalence of allergic disease in different regions with a high ratio of the plasma concentrations of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Linoleic acid (LA, or omega-6) is a precursor of arachidonic acid, which, in turn, is a precursor of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). PGE2 tends to increase IgE, and in turn increases histamine — i.e., the development of allergy is associated with a deficiency of omega-3 (Prescott & Calder, 2004).
