I've been reading articles on MDA about the different types of omega fats and am somewhat confused. Could someone fill in the blanks here and/or correct what I already have:

1. Polyunsaturated fats = 100% omega-6 always

2. Monounsaturated fats = omega-???

3. Saturated fats = omega-???

4. ??? = omega-9

Are all monounsaturated and saturated fats of a certain "omega type"?

I've heard olive oil contains omega-9 fatty acids. Is that true? I don't seem to see omega-9 mentioned much around here.

Is it possible to tell how much omega-3/6/9 is in a food simply by looking at what percent of fats are polyunsaturated, monounsaturated, and saturated?

Maybe Mark covered this in a previous article but my search isn't finding it.
