    The article presents the author's comments to a letter by his Japanese colleagues that addresses an important issue related to the healthful benefits of certain diets: their content of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and particularly the ratio of n-6 PUFA/n-3 PUFA. They report a 50-60 percent...

    Background: The optimal method for conducting omega (n-)3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) supplementation trials in children is unknown. Aim: To assess the impact of n-3 and n-6 PUFA intake from the background diet on plasma levels of n-3 and n-6 PUFA in children aged 0-3 years, with and...

    Background:Despite the potential benefits of long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC n-3 PUFAs), intake is often low because of low consumption of oily seafood. Microencapsulated fish oil powder can improve tolerance and acceptance of LC n-3 PUFAs. Bioavailability is important to achieve...

    Hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy): A condition that epidemiological studies have shown to be associated with increased risk of vascular disease and type 2 diabetes (T2D), arises from disrupted homocysteine (Hcy) and glucose metabolism. Our previous studies evaluating the regulation of Hcy metabolism...
