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.
