I don't have anything in particular against him, because I don't know anything about him. Sorry for being rude, but it's getting annoying at this point.

I do several things: I eat ground flax in cereal, etc, I add flax oil to things like smoothies and hot cereals. I try to watch my intake of omega-6. I also watch my intake of saturated fats (relatively easy on a vegan diet) and limit trans fats - both of which can reduce the conversion rates to DHA.



From research I'm done, I'm somewhat confident that our bodies are capable of producing enough DHA. It's our 'unnatural' diets that interfere with the conversion (higher omega-6: omega-3 ratio, more saturated and trans fats, etc). Our diet has changed so much from the one we evolved eating that our bodies can't really handle it.

gah I dont know. I havent eaten fish for 8 months. Been vegetarian 9 months. Ive taken vitamin supplements every fall and winter for years, and I do that now too. They're multi vits with calcium 'cos I drink very little milk.



I should take omega 3 tablets or something, but arent they made of fish?

Flax seed oil has Omega-3. You can get them in capsule form.



You can get Omega-3 DHA capsules derived from algae.

Im not sure whether or not they have "feelings" the way that we do. But denying they are animals seems pretty dumb. If they arent animals what the hell are they? Plants? Inanimate objects?
