NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Diets high in alpha-linolenic acid may promote strong bones, the results of a small study suggest, and contrary to what many people believe, you don't need to eat fish or take fish oil tablets to raise levels of this omega-3 fatty acid.<br></div>
</div>
<br>
Full article:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070223/hl_nm/fish_haters_dc_1;_ylt=AphYXbXAlDOTDQcdsl.Dwzxv24cA" target="_blank">http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070223/...cdsl.Dwzxv24cA</a><br><br><br><br>
It's good that a mainstream article talks about getting omega-3 from walnuts and flax seeds instead of eating fish, but I thought it was odd that they never mention vegetarians. I can only imagine that the author of this article thinks vegetarians normally eat fish. It also doesn't mention mercury levels or other negative health concerns from fish.<br><br><br><br>
So apparently, the writer thinks that not liking the taste of fish is the only reason not to eat it.<br><br><br><br>

Hemp seed is my favorite source of omega-3! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You know, I've seen hemp seeds mentioned a lot here on VB, but I refuse to touch them. I'm job hunting, and I don't want to risk failing a drug test.<br><br><br><br>
