Half Price Omega 3 DHA Offer for National Vegetarian Week

National Vegetarian Week - The Vegetarian Society

Special offer deal Vegetarian Omega 3 DHA
If you haven't seen or read anything about the benefits of fish oil the what do you read?

Omega 3 rich fish oil has been credited with curing almost everything except a cure for the common cold - diabetes, heart disease, altzhiemers, ADHD, Autism, depression, weight loss, even improving sports performance.

There are however a number of drawbacks with fish oil, particularly cod liveroil that you normally find on the high street shelves.

  1.  Toxins - Because the seas and oceans are now so contaminated toxins such as mercury and PCBs and a host of other chemicals regularly feature as a hazard in fish and in fish oil. It's a few years since products were removed from shelves for illegal levels of mercury, but who's checking? Have the seas got betteror worse?
  2. Purity - Cod liver oil is mostly mono and saturated fats not omega 3 DHA so most of what you are paying for is more of the oils that we typically we have an eccess of.
  3. Sustainability - International fish stocks are now at a record low and marine biology and various oceanic ecosystems are facing collapse.
  4. Ethics - You may not care about cod but it's not just fish that get caught in massive modern factory fishing methods. Dolphins, whales, sharks, turtles are all at risk from modern industrial fishing methods.
Vegetarian Vegan approved Omega 3 Pure DHA EPA from algae is a sustainable, mercury free, effective, pure, ethical, alternative to Omega 3 DHA from fish.

Time Magazine Mother Breastfeeding baby son, 3

Babies and Children

London Nutrition expert Yvonne Bishop-Weston says "It's absurd the fuss made over breast feeding whilst adults think nothing of happily drinking suckling milk of another species, perhaps time out should make their next cover a man crouching down under a lactating cow and suckling on the cow's udder to highlight the ludicrous and warped double standards"

Perhaps it's more to do with jealous husbands and farmers who envy their children extra access to their wife's body?

Yvonne says "an infant needs omega 3 DHA up until the age of 5 for optimum development - breast milk is a good source of essential fats, it makes sense. If you can't face the social stigma try omega 3 DHA from algae"

Mad Cow Disease

Most of us would do much better without dairy and dairy products. There is now a wealth of scientific study that implicates milk and cheese as a contributory risk factor in many of the major preventable diseases that plague our society and kill people younger than necessary.

Congratulations to Time Magazine for opening this debate and confronting people's hypocrisy head on, in their face, on the newsstands.

How To Get Pregnant Fast With Your Diet (Conception)

How To Get Pregnant Fast With Your Diet (Conception) 
With London Nutrition expert Yvonne Bishop-Weston

Nutrition advice from Heart Research UK for 9 to 5

News | Heart Research UK

Heart Research UK seem to finally waking up to the full impact on heart health of a nutritionally inadequate diet.

Following results of a survey that found that only 11% of people in England considered the nutritional value of their lunch to be of importance, they released a 9-5  press release advising;

" a healthy balanced diet, low in fat and high in fibre and vitamin-rich fruit and vegetables could be just what you need.  It will boost energy and concentration levels, and keep your heart healthy.

It’s sometimes a struggle to eat well during the week, and we tend to resort to quick fix lunches bought on the high street.
  • eat a good breakfast to set you up for the day and keep you feeling full until lunch-time.  If time is tight, keep some cereal, fruit, yogurt or toast in the office. 
  • ban the biscuits, crisps and chocolate - keep fresh or dried fruit, seeds and nuts in your desk instead
  • pack a healthy lunch - make it the night before so you can ‘grab-and-go’

 London Nutrition expert Yvonne Bishop-Weston says "It's very encouraging that they are encouraging people to eat more nutrient packed fruit and vegetables nuts and seeds and beans and cut back on nutrient poor sugar and saturated fat rich snacks. Perhaps their next press release could be not 9 to 5, but 5 to 9 - swap 5 a day for 9 a day as research shows benefits to reduce risk of heart disease start to have a real impact once you reach 8 a day. At least eight portions (handfuls ) of fruit and vegetables per day."
