Thanks to the translation effort of two volunteers of Life-SMS we are happy to release the factsheet Fatty acids and MS also in an English version.
Fatty Acids are basic components of the human cells and, additionally, have several important roles in the human body (see box on the right). Apart from trans fats, every fatty acid has its particular role. Basically, there are no “good” or “bad” ones. Nevertheless, a big imbalance between the several groups can cause serious health problems. Nowadays, this imbalance is present especially between the saturated and the (poly)unsaturated fatty acids and, regarding the latter, between the so-called Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. They can’t be synthesized by the human body itself and therefore are called “essential fatty acids”.
The download of the factsheet is free of charge. However we would be happy about a small donation (e.g. 3 €) under: https://www.betterplace.org/en/projects/16807
