Farmed Tilapia worse for you than a doughnut?

What they have discovered is that farmed Tilapia is high in Omega-6 and low in Omega-3. In our Western diets we have an imbalance of too much Omega-6 and not enough Omega-3. Omega-3 is very high in salmon and that is why people are advised to eat salmon or take salmon oil capsules. Omega-3 reduces inflammation and Omega-6 increases inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids are antithrombotic and omega-6 fatty acids increase blood clotting. Omega-3 fatty acids are non-immunoreactive whereas Omega-6 fatty acids are immunoreactive.

Here is the shocker: Apparently, farmed Tilapia have more Omega-6 fatty acids than doughnuts!!

Therefore, if one is trying to reduce inflammation, Tilapia would not be a good choice of fish. However, wild Tilapia were not studied and as we all know wild fish are the better choice over farmed fish.
