Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this thin book after in many previous read books hawing been reminded that in connection to what we eat Flax is the best small part also to consume. And then on the first sides in this book to be reminded that many notes in the Bible are telling us about the Flax. And to learn that it already was cultivated in Babylon 6 - 7.000 years ago and there besides also used for linen. And back in school in Denmark I newer learned that at the time of Vikings, British and Danes was consuming much Flax, which I now know after having read this book.

In the book we get much explanation about the Fats, and how we in USA, and other industrial countries, instead of having the best balance on 2-3:1 between Omega-6 to Omega-3 is having it 20-30:1. And we learn that Flax seed contains the highest percentage of Omega-3 Fatty Acid of any commercial grown plant.

And on the whole side overview, side 12, which we can't get out on PC screen when being in Amazon, we concerning the balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 among other are getting these notes:

% of Fat Omega-3 Omega-6
Content % of Fat % of Fat
Seed Oils
Canola (rape) 30 7 30
Chia 30 30 40
Flax 35 58 14
Olive 20 0 60
Fish (fresh)
Mackerel 10 19-31 1.6-4
Tuna (Albacore) 6 25 0.8
Eggs 23-26 0.2-0.8 11-16
Seaweed and algae 4-7 17 25

Were we see how the Flax most help to move the balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 more over to the 2:1 instead of the bad 20-30:1 we are having by the industrial food. And in the book we are getting many recipes.
