Specifically, I’m a bit confused about what to think about in regards to nut consumption. Nuts contain LA, not AA, right? Meanwhile, as far as I know, humans use AA, not LA. And the body can only convert a tiny amount of dietary LA into useable AA. So as long as the LA isn’t oxidized, do we need to worry about it?
Should plant sources of omega 3/6 really count toward your ratio? If I eat a bunch of ALA, I feel like it shouldn’t really count because I can’t use it the way I can use DHA and EPA from fish. Same with LA vs. AA.
