Fish oil intake in Beneris
|Moderator:Olli (see all)|
What is the fish oil (omega-3 fatty acids due to fish consumption) intake in the Beneris population?
The variable is directly computed from other variables.
List of parents:
- Concentrations of beneficial nutrients in fish
- Domestic fish consumption of the pregnant women in Finland (unpublished data, requires a password)
- Domestic fish consumption of the general population in Finland (unpublished data, requires a password)
- Body weight in Finland
Fish oil intake is represented as a continuous variable. Exposure is calculated as a product of concentration data and fish consumption data. This is further divided by bodyweight to report exposure in relation to kg of bodyweight. The formula provides intake of omega-3 fatty acids (docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) + eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)) due to fish consumption.
----1: . The formula for Data 1 was removed because the input variables are in g/d, not in kg/a. The formulas for Data 2 and Data 3 were merged, because the former is simply a special case of the latter. --Jouni 17:03, 16 September 2009 (EEST) (type: truth; paradigms: science: comment)
- The old descriptions can be found from a previous version.
Note! The current version only estimates DHA (not EPA) intake for pregnant women (not other groups) in Finland. Intakes from sea and freshwater species are estimated separately.
