Here is an excellent video on omega-3:

The best source for Omega-3 is fish. This is what my heart surgeon friend told me. He recommends people to eat fish atleast once a week.

What the doc ommited to include in his PubMed response (from your first link) is that pure DHA is readilly available from algae. Spirulina, and other algae, are good sources of DHA, whereas EPA in fish must be converted into DHA. Heat destroys DHA and EPA, and not many eat raw fish (certainly, it would be unwise to eat fish either raw or cooked, not least because of the high toxin concentrations found in fish).

It is clear, (through the video I posted above) that ALA is readily converted into EPA and DHA in humans, provided the correct LA to ALA ratio is maintained (omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of between 1:1 and 4:1). The wife of the expert speaking in the video was tested for DHA and found to have adequate levels. She derived her omega-3 from leafy vegetables alone!

So ground flax seed, or flax oil, will provide all of a persons ALA, EPA, and DHA, provided they do not over consume omega-6. And for those who want to miss out the middle man, I recommend going straight to the top and adding spirulina to your diet, for pure DHA.

Well he would say that; he is an allopath. Check out the video I posted, the info it contains is excellent.

Ratiocinator -- EXCELLENT response. That's exactly the type of info I was looking for but had yet to find. I take spirulina already and love it and had previously stocked up on flax seeds. So I'll just continue that. I think the kicker is avoiding Omega 6 since it's everywhere. I started eating fish instead of meat -- so I think that should do that trick. I already stopped any french fries since that's transfat (which is also Omega 6.

It's really wild because essentially the secret is not vegetarianism or even veganism but eating meat which is not fed by plow-based farming.

So this Omega 3 diet is really RADICAL.

NP.

Concerning your comment on meat: ALL meat is toxic to humans; we simply do not have the digestive system to cope with it. And I suggest you read The China Study, by Prof. T. Colin Campbell. In this book he shows very strong relationships between animal protein consumption and serious disease, notably cancer.

The hormones, grain feeding, medication, and so on, that are used in contemporary animal agriculture simply make an already toxic product even more toxic.

I've got an eye out for that book -- thanks. It's currently checked out from my library but should be back soon.

In the mean time -- more info on how even dairy is from grain-fed cows.

OK I read "Forty Centuries of Farming" today -- who recommended that book on this website? It was AWESOME -- sustainability in detail! Amazing! thanks.

OK I read this study -- because I'm at the university and the computer had database access -- THERE IS NO DHA IN SPIRULINA. It's an urban myth. "NOT DETECTED" -- was the result for DHA. Although there are 10 fatty acids in spirulina and others in trace amounts.

Abstract


Two New Age foods which contain high concentrations of whole food nutrients are the single-celled microalgae Chlorella and Spirulina. They are accepted as functional foods, which are defined as products derived from natural sources, whose consumption is likely to benefit human health and enhance performance. These foods are used as a supplement/ingredient or as a complete food to enhance the performance and state of the human body, or improve a specific bodily function. Functional foods are used mainly as products to nourish the human body after physical exertion or as a preventive measure against ailments. We determined the fatty acid compositions, particularly polyunsaturated fatty acid compositions, of Chlorella and Spirulina by capillary column-gas chromatography. The data obtained show that Spirulina contains unusually high levels of gamma-linolenic acid, an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid.

According to this study Omega 3 WAS NOT REDUCED by cooking the fish -- another Urban Myth destroyed.

Abstract
Frozen samples of common fish species, sea trout (Salmo trutta), from Norway and Siberia, herring (Clupea harengus pallasi), rock sole (Lepidopsetta bilineata) and cod (Gadus morhua maris-albi), collected from a wholesale market in Krasnoyarsk city (Siberia, Russia) were analyzed. Special attention was paid to long-chain essential polyunsaturated fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic, 20:5ω3 (EPA) and docosahexaenoic, 22:6ω3 (DHA). Heat-treatment (cooking and frying) did not in general significantly decrease the contents of EPA and DHA compared to raw fish species, except for a modest reduction in Norwegian trout during frying. Boiled trout appeared to be a more valuable fish dish for obtaining the officially recommended appropriate daily intake of EPA + DHA for humans. Herring and sole had intermediate values, while boiled cod had a comparatively low value.

Keywords: Essential polyunsaturated fatty acids; Trout; Herring; Sole; Cod
