One of our
advisors, Dr Garry Gordon, has written the
ultimate treatise on omega-3 essential fatty
acids. I’ve never before come across
such a thorough yet readable tract on these
Dr Gordon, like many progressive physicians
who see nutrition as the foundation of health
and wellness, states very clearly that much
of our illness today has come from our diets
lacking the basic essentials.
EFAs (essential fatty acids) were once part
of everyone’s diets. The eggs
we ate came from healthy chickens and contained
them; the grains we ate contained them; the
fish we eat still contain them (some fish,
not all); and many of the vegetables we ate
contained them. Today, our diets consist of
processed foods. Because omega-3 EFAs are
unstable, their shelf life is short, and for
a country more interested in marketing than
in health, they are very unprofitable.
Corn has become
our oil of choice, and sadly, during the fifties,
as Dr Gordon points out, the corn oil industry
convinced the medical community that corn
oils were the best oils to put in our bodies.
Wrong. As Dr Gordon adamantly states: Corn
is the most dangerous food on the market.
Many nutritionists agree with him.
