    The picture for the grass-fed vs grain-fed omega 3 in cows currently says that 5 grass-fed cows are the same as 1 grain-fed one when you mean it the other way around.

    • It’s meant to represent relative omega-3 content. Grass-fed cows contain 2-5x more omega-3s than corn-fed = 5 cows vs. 1 cow.

      It would be like having a bar graph that’s 5x as high. Sorry if it was confusing!
