How does a good ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids impact a healthy diet? Omega-3 fatty acids, especially EPA and DHA, are essential because our bodies cannot manufacture them.
The omega-3s are known to have significant health benefits, including a reduction in inflammation, and thus a potential reduction in arthritis, heart disease, and certain cancers. Omega-3s are also linked to possible benefits in cognition. EPA and DHA are sourced largely from fish, a crucial global resource that has become heavily over-exploited, to the point where certain fish stocks are being decimated. Can we safely continue to eat fish? Are there alternative sources of Omega-3s that are as nutritious and delicious? Can we save ourselves and save our planet? Join Dr Vincent de Luise for a lively conversation about seafood, sustainability and the future of omega-3s. We promise only a tiny taste of biochemistry, but a big serving of useful information!
