Barry Sears, Ph.D., author of Toxic Fat, and a former MIT medical researcher states, “The AA/EPA ratio is the best marker of Toxic Fat Syndrome… If the AA/EPA ratio is higher than 15, then you are rapidly accelerating yourself toward the early development of chronic disease. At 1.5, you have an ideal balance.”
