^  U.S. Dept. of Agriculture 2003; Health.gov: Addendum A: EPA and DHA Content of Fish Species

**Hemp oil's THC content fails drug test, but is not illegal.

*** Canada is a prime grower of flax, so it is ironic that Canadian law makes it illegal to declare EFA content on a product label, which would otherwise enlighten people to the fact that flaxseed is the richest source of ALA.

**** Conversion rate of ALA to EPA and DHA is conservatively estimated at 10-15%. i.e. 5g ALA at best yields ~0.75g EPA/DHA. And vice versa 1g EPA/DHA is equivalent to consuming 6.7g ALA

Oil LA Content - in Safflower (75%), sunflower (65%), corn (59%), and sesame (45%). These oils contain < 1% Omega 3
