    I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

      I figure it helps to know, but it won't keep me from using some oils sparingly.

        That's some good info, thanks.

        Omega-3 occurs in three forms ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), DFA and EFA.
        DFA? Either that's a typo or something I've never heard of.

        My understanding is that converting ALA (Omega 3 from plant sources) to EPA then DHA is really, really inefficient.
