Hello Ana,
the article says that if one has an intake of soya oil and canola oil than there is enough omega 3 in the diet. I am a little concerned about the fact that both those seeds are GMO whereas Chia is not. John Hopkins Medical web site has definite concerns about the consumption of GMO products.

best wishes
