    The prof interviewed, Philip Calder, seems to have publications saying n-3 is good

    http://eprints.soton.ac.uk/338813/

    and others saying n-6 is bad.

    How would you criticize that study? I only have access to the abstract. Did they control for the fact that mothers taking n-3 might be healthier for other reasons (takes discipline to eat fish and avoid junk food)?
