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:
SOURCES OF ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS
% of Fat Omega-3 Omega-6
Content % of Fat % of Fat
Canola (rape) 30 7 30
Chia 30 30 40
Flax 35 58 14
Olive 20 0 60
Mackerel 10 19-31 1.6-4
Tuna (Albacore) 6 25 0.8
Eggs 23-26 0.2-0.8 11-16
