A diet high in omega-6 PUFAs can inhibit omega-3 utilization [60]. Due to the pervasive use of vegetable oils that are high in omega-6 PUFAs, like corn and soybean oil, the relative ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 in a typical Western diet has risen to approximately 10 to 1 [61]. In non-Westernized diets and historic diets, the ratios have been estimated to be 2 to 1 and 1 to 1, respectively [62].

The food sources of zinc include shellfish (especially oysters), red meat, poultry, fortified cereals, whole grains, legumes, greens, and nuts. Oysters have the highest amount of zinc per serving, but in a typical American diet most of the zinc comes from red meat and poultry.
