The Necessity of Omega-3
Posted Tuesday, August 26, 2008
U.S. News & World Report has an article out today stressing the importance of omega-3 fatty acids, highlighting a serious deficiency in many people's diets. The difficulty with remedying this situation is that eating oily fish regularly is not a practical solution for many people. Many times the quality of fish itself can be part of the problem:
Though the medical and nutrition communities generally believe eating fatty fish is the way to go, refined fish oil supplements with specified doses of EPA and DHA can make for a more certain prescription, and one that alleviates concerns about fish being contaminated with mercury or PCBs.
For something so fundamentally useful, linked to beneficial effects in aliments as diverse as depression, arthritis, cancer, and premature births, everyone certainly needs to find some way to include omega-3s in their diet.
