    yes, but my mind is active during sleep and even when i fall asleep i dream and in the habit of pondering over the material. I've contained my sleep periods over the years to at least encompass the darkest hours of the day, which is an improvement.

    did you even read this or those links?

    However, when long-chain fatty acids are eaten, they must be emulsified by bile salts in the small intestine before they can be absorbed into the body. Short- and medium-chain fatty acids are absorbed directly through the portal vein to the liver, where they are immediately available to the body.
    this means that long-chain can not be used directly, they need to go all the way down to small intestine where they are emulsified by bile salts. body is able to use short- and medium-chain fatty acids more directly.

    comparing long-chain to short- & medium-chain fatty acids is same as comparing any kind of unsaturated and saturated fatty acids afaik. fats from plants are healthier than animal fats because they have more unsaturated fats(short- & medium-chain fats) and they can be used by human body better. saturated fats are already "used" and need to be broken down by bile salts before they can be used again, not to mention that these saturated(long-chain fatty acids) have cholesterol attached to them that are blocking veins.

    perfect ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 for human body is 3:1

    Food Omega-3 (grams per100g) Omega-6 (grams per 100g)
    Flax 20.3 4.9
    Hemp seeds 7.0 21.0
    Pumpkin seeds 3.2 23.4
    Salmon 3.2 0.7
    Walnuts 3.0 30.6
    Rape seed 2.1 9.0
    Herring 2.0 0.4
    Soybeans 1.2 8.6
    Butter 1.2 1.8
    Olive oil 0.6 7.9
    Wheat germ 0.5 5.5
    Sunflower seeds 0 30.7
    Almond 0 9.2
    Olives 0 1.6

    at least salmon seems to have pretty crappy ratio of omega-6 and omega-3

    please explain why you say that fish oil is better for omega-3 and omega-6 than hemp oil?

    not really if you examine it bit closer, it has 1:4 ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 and 3:1 is perfect, thats way off.
