The human body has an absolute requirement for polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) of both the n-6 and n-3 series. Our laboratory has focused on the effect of dietary PUFA on the several functions of human body.
Our current investigations are as follows: the assessment of the quality and quantity of dietary PUFA; the incorporation of dietary PUFA into phospholipids of plasma and erythrocytes; and the appropriate lipid nutrition for the preventions of life-related diseases.
