That's the standard paleo line. AA is to omega-6s as DHA/EPA are to omega-3s. Though to claim that paleos are eating too much omega-6s/AA is a little funny, many paleos are borderline deficient in omega-6s. He's a fan of Ray Peat, so he's... (more)

Its kinda nice to see for yourself that you can cover all the RDA's eating paleo if you wish. But, dig a little deeper into that rabbit hole and you find yourself questioning the RDA scheme validity altogether.

cold blooded animals have higher PUFA. warm blooded animals have higher saturated fat. Even within an animal, fat towards the center of the animal tends to be higher in saturated fat and fat towards the extremity higher in PUFA.
