    I needed some numbers on PUFA consumption and found this study:

    Blasbalg et al. (2011) Changes in consumption of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the United States during the 20th century

    Here, a few excerpts:

    "[...] To our knowledge, no estimate of changes in the n23 or n26 tissue status of Americans throughout the 20th century has previously been published. [...]"

    "[...] Because the essential fatty acid composition of foods produced in the early 20th century were likely to be different from those produced by modern practices (14–16), the essential fatty acid content for 1909 was modeled twice: 1909-C designating modeling with foods with current fatty acid compositions and 1909-T designating modeling using nutrient composition data from the direct analysis of foods produced via practices that were common in the early 20th century (1909-T) (Table 1). [...]"

    "[...] In general, the consumption of oils increased; however, a few specific oils were responsible for this change. After the market introduction in 1986, the estimated per capita consumption of canola oil increased 167-fold in 13 y from 0.01 to 0.8 kg canola oil [per] capita [per year]. The estimated per capita consumption of soybean oil increased from 0.009 kg soybean oil [per] capita [per year] in 1909 to 11.64 kg soybean oil [per] capita [per year] in 1999 (a 1163-fold increase), which made it the primary driver of the overall increase in oil consumption (Figure 1C).

    also:

    Increase in adipose tissue linoleic acid of US adults in the last half century. - PubMed - NCBI

    “Over the last half century in the United States, dietary LA intake has greatly increased as dietary fat sources have shifted toward polyunsaturated seed oils such as soybean oil.…adipose tissue LA has increased by 136% over the last half century and that this increase is highly correlated with an increase in dietary LA intake over the same period of time.”

    Is this sugar consumption per individual?
    If not you have to look at population increase next to it.

    "a remarkably straight line, increasing steadily from 6.3 pounds per person per year in 1822 to a maximum of 107.7 lb/person/year in 1999."
    "These numbers represent added sweeteners such as cane sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and maple syrup, but not naturally occurring sugars in fruit and vegetables."

    Sorry to disappoint you, sure this data won't be much of your liking, but I have not doubt you'll have no problem to come up with strong conta-arguments to invalidate any weight it may pose.

    To me, pair -refined- sugars consumption increase with the rise in seed oils and you got a pretty decent cocktail for health issues.

    The reality then is more fruits and vegetables were consumed before,people probably consumed just as much sugar then with fruits,veg and dairy,more nutrients to process the sugar.
    Eating a donut fried in soy bean oil coated in sugar makes data more complex.

    regular table sugar is more relevant to an argument on this forum,the other sugars not so much.
