Omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are essential fatty acids that must be derived from the diet (it cannot be produced by man), and other mammals, because of the lack of endogenous enzymes for omega-3 desaturation. Moreover, EPA and DHA have numerous scientifically proven health benefits, which make them the preferred omega fatty acids. Linoleic acid accounts for 85-90% of dietary omega-6 fatty acids. The risk of developing type-2 diabetes could be significantly reduced by eating a diet, rich in omega-6 polyunsaturated fats, which in turn boosting the Omega-6 and omega-3 growth during the forecast period.
