Take Heart!
Omega-3s in the Spotlight

Much has been said about the positive effects of fish oil on people’s health, more specifically on the prevention of heart-disease because fish oil is loaded with omega-3s fats. However, the therapeutic effectiveness of fish oil–derived fatty acids remains controversial and physicians wonder if indeed it makes sense for patients to consume them.

Please visit Omega-3s: Fishing for a Mechanism:
Our oceans are dying. Industrial fishing and modern agriculture are pushing fish populations to a dangerous low number. The irony in all this is that cows nowadays are the largest ocean predators due to our insane demand for beef. Fish and other animals are not needed in a healthy diet. In fact, vegetarians and vegans can easily obtain omega-3s by consuming flax seeds, flax oil, canola and hemp oils, and even walnuts. Our circle of compassion should embrace all sentient beings, including fish.
