@LivelyReversal I don’t know but suspect not.

I’d first ask why should I want to eat more PUFAs? I eat oily fish occasionally: herring, sardines, anchovies, salmon. In fact, for a couple of years I ate herring about 4-5 times per week. But not so much any more. Even when I was eating lots more herring and other oily fish, my total caloric requirement was not lower. In fact, during that time frame I established my current maintenance ‘caloric window’.

My opinion is that our ancestors consumed whatever PUFAs were contained in the fats they ate in the various prey animals they hunted. And whatever those amounts, they are probably about what we have evolved to consume as part of a healthy diet. Granted, in certain environments fish were a more prominent dietary component than in others. Yet overall, I’d say that PUFAs are likely best consumed in the relatively small amounts contained in other animal fats - rather than eating oily fish exclusively, for example.

Have you got any citations of research indicating otherwise? If so, I’d like to see it. Thanks.

The result of trying to use dry ice to chill a cocktail. It makes perfect sense in theory, but… lots of smoke and no fire.

On his 74th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife. The certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction.

After being persuaded, he drove to the reservation. The old medicine man slowly and methodically produced a potion, handed it to him, and with a grip on his shoulder, warned, “This is a powerful medicine, and it must be respected. You take only a teaspoonful, and then say ‘1-2-3.’ When you do that, you will become more manly than you have ever been in your life, and you can perform as long as you want.”

As he walked away, the man asked, “How do I stop the medicine from working?”

“Your partner must say ‘1-2-3-4,’” the medicine man responded, “but when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon.”

The man was very eager to see if the potion worked so he went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited his wife to join him in the bedroom. When she came in, he took off his clothes and said, “1-2-3!”

Immediately, he was the manliest of men.

His wife was excited and began throwing off her clothes, and then she asked, “What was the 1-2-3 for?”
