Several sources of information suggest that man evolved on a diet with a ratio ofw6 to w3 fatty acids of 1 whereas today this ratio is 10:1 to 20-25:1, indicating that Western diets are deficient in w3 fatty acids compared with the diet on which humans evolved and their genetic patterns were established. Omega-3 fatty acids increase bleeding time; decrease platelet aggregation, blood viscosity, and fibnnogen: and increase erythrocyte deformability, thus decreasing the tendency to thrombus… Expand
