I think this may have to do with the “too much anti-oxidants can be bad” thing- which is true.
And if you don’t think these oils can gobble up those free radicals…take a look at this product: http://www.immunoviva.com/organic_health_products/product_family.htm Notice the test kit they offer with it…they seem pretty confident in their products. And for the immune system/fighting against colds etc: http://www.aslcancerfund.org/research_library/The%20Cold%20and%20Flu%20May%20Have%20a%20New%20Natural%20Enemy.html
Then there’s this: “Recent studies have indicated that a healthy diet should contain a balance of essential fats. The two types of most concern are omega-6 and omega-3, and both are essential for proper nutrition. Omega-3 fat, which is often found in high levels in certain fish, has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, but too much omega-3 can increase the risk of stroke.” http://www.purdue.edu/UNS/html4ever/020204.Watkins.paleo.html
Obviously balance is key.
