          Eicosanoids - Hormone like autocoids (auto = self, akos = healing) formed by body tissues during self-healing responses to stimuli.

                                          They are formed from highly unsaturated fatty acids that we acquire by eating essential fatty acids

          Eicosanoid formation and disease severity      (re: unsaturated fats, omega-3 and -6 fatty acids)

                 5 minute narrated slide show links the metabolism of foods to eicosanoid formation and disease severity.

                 5 minute narrated show discusses the history of essential fatty acids and eicosanoids.
