Omega-3 Least Known of Pregnancy "Big 3"

"9/18/2006 - Only 41 percent of mothers and expectant mothers know they should be consuming

omega-3 fatty acids during pregnancy, according to a recent survey,emphasizing a need for more

education as well as an untapped market"

Nutraingredients-USA

Comments: At least some awareness for what the Longevity Institute published 5 years ago.

There is a major error in the text of Nutraingredients: Arachidonic acid is an omega-6 not an

omega-3 Essential fatty acid. That article further cautions the readers not to eat fish to avoid

mercury. They should have added that small fish like sardine and anchovies are perfectly safe as

source of long chain omega-3 EFAs. Their lifespan is too short to accumulate mercury.
