Are you risking cancer with this fat?

"You know by now that there are "good" fats and "bad" fats. And you’ve probably heard that small amounts of omega-6 fatty acids from seeds and plants are essential to our body. When combined with omega-3 fatty acids from fish, omega-6's appear to play an integral role in maintaining health. Combined, these two fats can help regulate proper brain development, energy production, immune function and put out the fires of inflammation.

However, large quantities of omega-6 fats can become poisonous."
