Not just Omega fatty acids Zo

Zo, I don't think it's always a good idea to get too enthused about what's the latest & best. Either months or years later, you'll read that *new* findings show what was thought to be unhealthy isn't so bad after all & vice versa.
e.g. black tea, wine, olive oil (it was once thought to be unhealthy!), & many more if I start thinking back.

Rather than target certain omega fatty acids, it's safer & cheaper to take something with a few different ones like the 3 & 6. I still prefer to get most of mine in nuts & oils in my diet - it's cheaper & there's going to be more benefits than just the known omega fatty acids. Foods always contain more than just those that are known, but a whole host of nutrients we're just starting to learn about that are collectively called phytonutrients or phyto-factors.

If anyone feels they benefit from taking extra, all the better for them, but a poor diet will more than negate extra supplements. (Not that I'd ever suggest that's what you're doing!)
