Food For Thought

Can omega-3 from fish oils improve mood, behaviour, attention and learning as well as general health?

We are delighted to announce that Dr Alex Richardson will be giving three public lectures in Cork, Galway and Dublin in September 2007. Dr Richardson will demonstrate the 'real evidence' and sort the 'facts' from the 'myths' surrounding 'omega-3'.

  • What are 'Omega-3'? And which ones are crucial for a healthy heart, brain and immune system?
  • Can fish oils really improve children's behaviour and learning? What's the evidence in children with ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia or autism?
  • Can EPA and DHA help reduce depression, anxiety and memory problems?
  • Which fats and oils should vegetarians choose for health and why?
  • Energy and weight control: which fats don't make you fat? And which ones do?
  • Dietary choices, supplements and 'functional foods' - what's best for you?
  • Your own questions answered
