Women on Vegan Diets Have More Long-Chain Omega-3s, Compared with Fish-Eaters

Women following vegan diets have significantly more omega-3 “good fats” in their blood, compared with fish-eaters, meat-eaters, and ovo-lacto vegetarians, according to a new report from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) Study. Levels in vegan men were not quite as high as in vegan women. Despite zero intake of long-chain omega-3s eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and substantially lower intake of their plant-derived precursor alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), vegan participants converted robust amounts of shorter-chain fatty acids into these long-chain fatty acids. The study included 14,422 men and women aged 39 to 78.

DO YOU MEAN PCRM? The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine??
Do not worry. I am not dyslexic. I did not get it in the first time and am always a bit careless on retypes.
I am a rotton speller though.

This is huge. I was looking for a study exactly like this and never thought I would find one. Thanks!!
this suggests we don't need to consume fish/krill/phytoplankton/algae rather than overts but still fascinating news, thanks for posting mary
