IAFNS Lipids Committee Meeting
Virtual, Event
August 7, 2024
10:00 am – 1:00 pm

At this IAFNS Lipids Committee meeting, members will review and select from submitted research proposals in response to a publicly issued request for research on “Blood levels of long-chain n-3 fatty acids among North American teens/young adults eating plant-based diets.” Proposed research is to address the question of whether some plant-based diets affect blood DHA and EPA levels by restricting foods that are sources of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (DHA & EPA) while simultaneously increasing the amount of a plant-based unsaturated fat that may reduce conversion of ALA to long-chain DHA and EPA. The latter fatty acids are present in high concentrations in brain tissue. For more information about attending this invitation-only event, please contact IAFNS at science@iafns.org
