▣ Live Long and Healthy With Omega-3 Oils

posted by David on April 4th, 2011 at 12:31 PM

Seeking better cardiovascular health? Want to slow down the aging process? Fish oils rich in omega-3 fats are your go-to nutritional supplement. Just about everyone knows that eating lots of processed and fast food will increase your risk of getting sick, aging fast and dying young—and that the standard Western diet contains far too many of these foods. The evidence for this causal correlation continues to mount as more of the world starts to eat like Americans, and we see rising rates of cardiovascular disease, type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes, obesity and cancer in those populations that once thrived on their native, indigenous diets.

▣ Why You Need Flax: Dr. Johanna Budwig’s Groundbreaking Research Lives On

In 1950, a well-respected pharmacologist, physicist and chemist named Dr. Johanna Budwig became the first researcher to discover that not all fats are the same. Dr. Budwig was also my aunt and the woman who raised me. As a physician myself, my respect for her as a luminary in science has only strengthened over the years as her groundbreaking research on fatty acids and the healing properties of omega-3s has been proven again and again in scientific research. Dr. Budwig was the Federal Republic of Germany’s senior expert on fats and pharmaceutical drugs. Through extensive research, Dr. Budwig became the first person to identify the differences between fats found in wild, cold-water fish and flaxseed (omega-3s), from those found in olive oil and avocado (omega-9s), and those present in corn oil, poultry, eggs, and nuts (omega-6s.) Today, the world continues to benefit from her pioneering research.

Heart disease. Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Menstrual pain. Bipolar disorder. Schizophrenia. Asthma. Arthritis. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Macular degeneration. Colon, breast, and prostate cancers.

 

All of these conditions may share a common denominator: a dietary imbalance that has become increasingly prevalent as we’ve moved away from traditional diets and into processed food and fast-food, restaurant-food, junk-food diets. It is an imbalance between two kinds of essential fatty acids (EFAs), fats in the omega-6 family and fats in the omega-3 category.

Parents across the United Kingdom were recently fascinated by an intriguing experiment on the BBC’s Child Of Our Time documentary. In the show, Professor Robert Winston has been giving daily doses of fish oil supplements containing omega-3 fatty acids to two children, each with different behavioral problems.

 

Three months later, the changes were significant. One boy’s aggressive behavior almost vanished and the other, once withdrawn and uncommunicative, has become popular and outgoing, according to a report in the January 20, 2011, Daily Mail by Marianne Power.

 

Suddenly, fish oils seem to be the answer to all parents’ problems, the report gushes.
