Bill Lands (aka William E.M. Lands, PhD) Resources on n-6 and n-3 PUFAs

Bill Lands is one of the titans in the field of human PUFA metabolism. As Wikipedia puts it: "...[he] is an American nutritional biochemist who is among the world's foremost authorities on essential fatty acids."

I don't call him "Bill" to be familiar, after he retired he switched from publishing as William E.M. to Bill.

Here's a select bibliography of interesting things he's written and done.

He's pretty fiery, so be sure to watch those video of his speech in (I think) 1999 at the NIH workshop, whence this quote:

It's in four parts, but it's well worth it. 

Or this:

"Fifty years later, I still cannot cite a definite mechanism or mediator by which saturated fat is shown to kill people." (Lands 2008)
