[Paleopsych] Omega 3 tweak

A nice finding by a study at the U. of Colorado is that the fat of
free-living ruminants - pronghorns, mule deer, elk and grass-fed beef - is
very high in omega-3 fatty acids. The ratio is one omega-3 to two omega-6
fatty acids (in beef from feed lots the ratio is 1/40). Another find is that
monogastrics (pigs, horses, elephants) have higher concentrations of omega-3
fatty acids than do ruminants. The Caveman's diet comes to mind. Cheers, Val
