I just watched a tv programme (about how crappy the cereal industry is!) and an 'expert' (doctor? scientist? can't remember) said that there is no evidence that plant based omega fatty acids are beneficial to humans at all. he advocates consuming fish for that.
admittedly, i don't know what omega 3 & 6 are meant to do so well, but i've been vegetarian for 10 years and never felt like i was missing something. i've always thought that flax is good for omega fatty acids and now i'm questioning how much i really know about anything involving nutrition. for example, the whole b-12 debate about whether non-animal b-12 can actually be absorbed and now this omega fatty acid slur.
anyone know anything about omega fatty acids?
