Seafood, Sustainability + the Science of Omega-3s
Tuesday September 17th 12pm
Vincent de Luise, MD
How does a good ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids impact a healthy diet? Omega-3 fatty acids, especially EPA and DHA, are essential because our bodies cannot manufacture them.
The omega-3s are known to have significant health benefits, including a reduction in inflammation, and thus a potential reduction in arthritis, heart disease, and certain cancers. Omega-3s are also linked to possible benefits in cognition. EPA and DHA are sourced largely from fish, a crucial global resource that has become heavily over-exploited, to the point where certain fish stocks are being decimated. Can we safely continue to eat fish? Are there alternative sources of Omega-3s that are as nutritious and delicious? Can we save ourselves and save our planet? Join Dr Vincent de Luise for a lively conversation about seafood, sustainability and the future of omega-3s. We promise only a tiny taste of biochemistry, but a big serving of useful information! Want to explore the topic more prior to the event? Check out Queen of Fats by Susan Allport and The Omega Principle by Paul Greenberg.
Free! Registration Requested.
