A food industry newsletter I subscribe to,, has a collection of articles on Omega-3s.

These are long-chain fatty acids from fish or algae (EPA, DHA) or plants (ALA).  They are said to prevent or cure anything that ails you.  Most studies show seafood to be associated with good health, but supplements not so much.

Omega-3s are terrific for marketing, which is why ingredient suppliers love them.

Alas, I remain skeptical.
