    Results of this study with specific Bayesian statistical analysis support earlier findings of a protective role of Mg and low Ca:Mg ratio against coronary heart disease but do not support the earlier hypothesis of a protective role of Ca

    Plant-animal subsistence ratios and macronutrient energy estimations in worldwide hunter-gatherer diets.
    Cordain L, Miller JB, Eaton SB, Mann N, Holt SH, Speth JD.
    Am J Clin Nutr. 2000 Mar;71(3):682-92.
    PMID: 10702160

    Our analysis showed that whenever and wherever it was ecologically possible, hunter-gatherers consumed high amounts (45-65% of energy) of animal food. Most (73%) of the worldwide hunter-gatherer societies derived >50% (> or =56-65% of energy) of their subsistence from animal foods, whereas only 14% of these societies derived >50% (> or =56-65% of energy) of their subsistence from gathered plant foods. This high reliance on animal-based foods coupled with the relatively low carbohydrate content of wild plant foods produces universally characteristic macronutrient consumption ratios in which protein is elevated (19-35% of energy) at the expense of carbohydrates (22-40% of energy).

    High omega-6 and low omega-3 fatty acids are associated with depressive symptoms and neuroticism.
    Conklin SM, Manuck SB, Yao JK, Flory JD, Hibbeln JR, Muldoon MF.
    Psychosom Med. 2007 Dec;69(9):932-4. Epub 2007 Nov 8.PMID: 17991818

    CONCLUSIONS: In conjunction with other reports, these findings suggest that the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are related to negative affect at both the symptom and trait levels.

    Israeli 'cancer shift' over heart disease mortality may be led by greater risk in women with high intake of n-6 fatty acids.
    Shapira N.
    Eur J Cancer Prev. 2007 Oct;16(5):486-94.
    PMID: 17923822
    doi: 10.1097/CEJ.0b013e3280145b6d

    Population studies of Israeli Jews, Arabs, and women support the association of high n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid intake with increased cancer risk and higher female sensitivity. Research findings suggest that gender and sex hormones may influence n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid metabolism and carcinogenesis. This appears to be the first time gender has been proposed to modulate national cancer epidemiology, suggesting implications for differential nutritional prevention, warranting further research.
