heard a very important fact on the radio yesterday (radio 4 for the t-men/women in the UK). the basic gist was that omega 3 is important (duh), omega 6 and 9 arent very (duh again).
food companies are now putting ‘high/source of in omega 3’ labels on stuff like margerine and bread. this omega 3 source is minute - below 100mg - and is from the LONG CHAINED omega 3 in plant sources - the body finds this very hard to process and the amount is useless.
food companies can do this due to the new EU dietry standards, which were set LOWER than in the UK (who set them at level they deemed the average clued-up person would sensibly be able to get in their diet).
one MAJOR problem is that some supplement companies are now doing this as well, so go check your omega 3 supps NOW.
i appreciate most members of T-Nation might be aware of this, but i thought it important for the new people to know of this, as FISH OIL is awesome - so get your omega 3 from that. bathe in it, seriously.
