a, childhood depression, and reduce the risk of type 1 diabetes.

The researchers from Guelph University concluded "There is an apparent need to create greater awareness of the importance of the long-chain (LC) omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) among both health professionals and the general public as well as the existing gap between actual and recommended intakes from various sources. This gap can be readily filled with an increased consumption of fish/seafood containing (Omega-3) DHA/EPA, the increased availability of foods that have been nutritionally enriched with various delivery forms of LC PUFA (Omega-3) (DHA/EPA), and the use of supplementation where necessary."

Lori Covert, V.P. of Marketing & Communications for Ocean Nutrition Canada explained "This new study is really important because although research shows that awareness of the health benefits of Omega-3 EPA/DHA is high most people still do not consume enough fish. In fact, more than 80% of Americans do not consume at least two 4 oz servings of oily fish per week resulting in an Omega-3 EPA/DHA deficiency." Covert continued "That is why we have partnered with major food manufacturers to fortify every day foods with our tasteless, odorless Omega-3 EPA/DHA fish oil ingredient."

"For many years now infant formula has been supplemented with DHA so many parents are already aware of the health benefits associated with Omega-3 for their children. However, it's critical for parents to understand that children, and everyone for that matter, need both Omega-3 EPA and DHA from fish oil in their diet." Dr. Sears, Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine continued, "We need parents to understand that fish oil is the only source of both EPA and DHA.
