Get Fat! Omega-3 Fatty Acids That Is.

Omega-3 SupplementsWhen the words oils and fats are mentioned, health-conscious individuals tend to run for cover. What they fail to realize is that there are good fats and bad fats.  Complete avoidance of intake of oils and fats would actually be detrimental – rather than beneficial – to their health.

The Truth about Fish Oil

Essential fatty acids must always be part of our daily diet – without them, we take one step closer to our deaths.  Essential fatty acids are divided into two families: omega-6 EFAs and omega-3 EFAS.

Although there are only very slight differences to distinguish the two groups of essential fatty acids from each other, studies have revealed that too much intake of omega-6 EFAs can lead to inflammation, blood clotting and tumor growth.  The good news, however, is that the opposite is true for omega-3 EFAs.  Omega-6 EFAs can be found in vegetable oils while omega-3 EFAs can be found in fish oils among other foods. 

Omega-6 vs. Omega-3

Physicians and scientists believe that the imbalanced intake of omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs is the cause behind increasing cases of various health problems.

As mentioned earlier on, omega-6 EFAs can be found in vegetable oils.  This includes but is not limited to corn oil and soy oil, both of which contain high amounts of linoleic acid.  Omega-3 EFAs on the other hand can be found also in marine plankton and walnut and flaxseed oils.  It should be significant to take note that fatty fish and fish oils contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), fatty acids that have been observed to provide many benefits to the human body.  In the early 1970’s, a study on Greenland Eskimos have revealed that one of the major reasons why they rarely suffer from heart problems is because of their high-fat diet (mainly composed of fish).  Continue reading Get Fat!

I wrote about the Swine Flu in my blog article “The Greatest Quackery in the History of Medicine“. 

I found this excellent update on the issue at Natural News that shows the waste and thievery going on.  Here it is:

Your Mother Was Right

“Wash your hands and make sure you use the soap!” Mom would say as we came in for supper.  It made me wonder what kind of plague I could have come in contact with playing outside with my brothers.  We hadn’t been tossing bubonic rats around!  Was some deadly germ lurking under my fingernails waiting to drop off into the mashed potatoes and kill us all?

Now all kinds of people are telling us to wash our hands and it looks like Mom was right all along.

With concern over the flu virus, the CDC reminded us that keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to help prevent the spread of disease.  The Mayo Clinic says that frequent hand washing is one of the best ways to avoid getting sick and spreading illness.
