I for one appreciate all your information Lar---and I do understand it is opinion....thank you for explaining the linoleic acid vs GLA. The sad thing is--I have read about many of these things, but my memory fails me miserably!! I understood GLA could help my health, then I forgot why! if everyone says in a blanket statement that we have too much omega 6 in our diet...
Also one piece to remember in regards to changes in our foods....not only livestock are fed on cornmeal, which can alter the composition of the meat---but also farm-raised salmon are on cornmeal. I have read that studies show these farm-raised salmon have MUCH less omega 3 than wild salmon. I for one do not assume omega 3 supplementation from salmon unless I know it is wild salmon.....
These are reasons why I too belive these days we cannot assume we get adequate nutrition from food--the food has changed dramatically in composition and nutrient amounts!
