          We also noted that the third paragraph of the Discussion states that our data shows daily consumption of EPA and DHA of 0.41 g and 0.72 g, respectively, however this should be 41 mg/day and 72 mg/day, respectively.

          Lastly, the titles of Tables six and eight in the published manuscript should be displayed as, “Mean usual intake of EPA from foods and dietary supplements (mg/day) in adults from NHANES 2003-2008” and “Mean usual intake of DHA from foods and dietary supplements (mg/day) in adults from NHANES 2003-2008”, respectively.
