British and American Research Shows Omega-3 DHA Reduces Violence

In the 1970s, according to a Guardian report, British scientist Michael Crawford described the structural importance of Omega-3 DHA to the brain, and predicted the awful effects of lack of DHA in the modern diet. Omega-3 DHA is found in fish, and in cod-liver oil.

Now researchers in Britain and the U.S. have shown that the violence of men in jail is drastically reduced when they are given sufficient Omega-3. Significantly they have also shown that Omega-6 fatty acids, so prevalent in fast foods, will knock out Omega-3.

It may even be, alas, that fish and chips is a prime example of a food (fish) rich in Omega-3 that is knocked out by the Omega-6 in the tasty fried batter.
