I have never heard of omega 6 leading to heart disease. It can lead to some other diseases but in excesive amounts!

I have never agree with this idea. Omega 6 fatty acids are not harmful for heart health. Although excess of any thing is bad for health and fitness. So use it in a safe level.

I know it is not regarded to the starting question, but can anybody tell me some foods omega 6 is contained in at a decent amount?

They can raise triglyceride levels, so if you already have high levels then you need to stay away from them.

Excess Omega 6 WITH the non-existence of Omega 3s in the diet can lead to and cause inflammation. Inflammation is of course related to heart disease.. so there is a plausible indirect correlation. Optimally you would want to have a balance ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3. Healthiest is 2:1. Like 2g of Omega 6 to 1g of Omega 3. If you start eating more fish it will help the ratio.. anythings better than the standard american diets stats of 20:1.. very unbalance and unhealthy.
