Feeding adult rats a 17% corn-oil diet for 8 weeks did not change brain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) compared to rats fed 2.2% corn oil (with 2.2% lard added). When the corn-oil diet was supplemented with 14.5% cod liver oil or 12.5% salmon oil, the fatty acid composition of brain PUFA was significantly altered, even if alpha-tocopherol was added to the salmon-oil diet. Comparing salmon-oil- and cod-liver-oil-fed animals with corn-oil-fed animals, arachidonic acid 22:4(n-6) and 22:5(n-6… CONTINUE READING
