OMEGA-3
 
What is Omega-3?

    Omega-3 fatty acids are a special type of polyunsaturated
 
fat.  Today, science is validating more and more healthful
 
benefits that Omega-3 fats can have on the human mind and
 
body.  Several studies have shown that relatively small
 
amounts of these Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the pain
 
and inflammation from some types of arthritis, lower
 
triglyceride levels, and reduce the incidence of sudden
 
cardiac death by 50% or more in both men and women. 
 
Omega-3 fatty acids are emerging as an important
 
nutritional element in brain science and very important on
 
infant brain development.  Omega-3 fatty acids are found in
 
cold, deep-water fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna and
 
sardines.  One draw back to omega-3 rich fish is that they
 
are high in fat, cholesterol, cancer and toxins such as
 
mercury.  However, there is a way to have the benefit of the
 
omega-3 fatty acids without eating fish, fish oil, or expensive
 
supplements.  The way is so simple.  You can get omega-3
 
from rich PLANT-BASED oils such as flaxseed, soybean,
 
walnut, canola oil without cholesterol, cancer, toxin such as
 
mercury. I have included many delicious recipes in all my
 
cookbooks that are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids.  My
 
recommendation would be to include foods high in omega-3
 
in one meal each day.
