CLA help? The science behind it? Possible Sides?

I have found out on wikipedia that CLA comes in two main types of "Isomers", depending on what food source it's taken from.
 
1) The first having a composition classed as c9 - t11
2) The second classed as t10 - c12
 
The first seems to have little side effect and very positive results, however the second seems to be linked to many sides and can contribute to negative impact on insulin and stress levels.
 
I've just bought some CLA (not sure if I can mention where from, suffice to stay it's 'MY' usual distributor) but one of the reviews someone has published states that it contains 50% of each Isomer.  Can't find anywhere where this person has got this info, however assuming that it's true, I'd like to know:-
 
a) Does anyone have any good knowledge of this as I don't know how serious Isomers are and don't have the diploma to know how serious it is.
 
b) Has anyone taken CLA and had to stop due to any side effects?
 
c) Can anyone recommend a CLA product that they know contains 100% of the c9 - t11 Isomer?

There are two isomers cis-9,trans-11 linoleic acid and trans-10,cis-12 linoleic acid the first has an anabolic action and the t-10 c-12 isomer has a fat loss action but some research shows it may also increase insulin resistance and lower good (HDL) cholesterol in men with abdominal obesity.
 
CLA supplements have a 50:50 mix of the isomers due to the production method used to produce the CLA, it isn´t possible to buy a supplement containing only one isomer.

That puts my mind at rest, many thanks for your advice.  No smooth without rough I guess!
