A good rule of thumb would be to consume no more than 4% of your calories as Omega-6 fat and around as much Omega-3 fat...

Arg. What strikes me is that it just doesn't make sense to be popping all these pills. Certainly not lipitor and other cash cows. But fish oils?

My high level of inflammation is coming from somewhere. I'd say -- lack of exercise. Climbed hills canvassing this weekend and knee is now ground beef, very sore ground beef. No, I'm not having it replaced. But you can walk forever on flat ground and it won't make you fit. You need hills, you need stressing. There has to be a work-around...

I tried it and there was no noticeable difference but it was not expensive.

I knowwww. I take dha, get my 1000 units a day.

Still ---

Study recently about turmeric / curcumin and dha making a nice soup / happy vale for nerve healing. I jump at it. But should I? Tired of jumping... 

Just have another cup of coffee or tea... maybe some cognac left for later. Right now I have to go make phone calls for Obama. But mostly I really just keep getting nothing done. Arg. What stars or planet sit on us? 

On the whole -- good to be alive. Amazing.

That's the best medicine, yes?
