Omega3-enrichment is disease-prevention; needed in health edu. & hunger programs!
Overt efforts to support balanced intake of EFAs have socially-redeeming results!
Our research compilation how good fats heal is inspired by pionneers like Dr Hyman, Dr Weil, Dr Furhman.
OFAN's job is to ACT on the SCIENCE to help good fats improve outcomes for these social welfare arenas:

#HempFlaxChia & Walnut for Omega3
What are experts saying?
"Many nutrition experts believe that before we relied so heavily on processed foods, humans consumed omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in roughly equal amounts. But to our great detriment, most North Americans and Europeans now get far too much of the omega-6s and not enough of the omega-3s. This dietary imbalance may explain the rise of such diseases as asthma, coronary heart disease, many forms of cancer, autoimmunity and neurodegenerative diseases, all of which are believed to stem from inflammation in the body. The imbalance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids may also contribute to obesity, depression, dyslexia, hyperactivity and even a tendency toward violence. Bringing the fats into proper proportion may actually relieve those conditions." Joseph Hibbeln, M.D. - National Institutes of Health, and perhaps the world's leading authority on the relationship between fat consumption and mental health.
These fatty acids play critical roles in cognitive development and learning, visual development, immune strength, fighting inflammation, pregnancy, brain health, and preventing Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, cancer, mental illness and so much more. They affect every one of your hundred trillion cell membranes.
In fact, a recent and the most comprehensive review on omega 3 fats looked at 19 studies from 16 countries (including 45,637 participants) and found that those with the highest levels of omega 3 fats in their blood had lower risks of heart attacks. - Dr Hyman "The Missing Fat you need to Survive and Thrive"
Operating Plant Kingdom Snackery featuring hempseed protein foods, we got feedback that hemp foods are particularly satisfying for endurance energy. Our vendors were tasked with clearing up misunderstanding and hesitation so MORE benefits of the CROP could be realized. I'm convinced there's extensive omega-3 enrichment needed for the fat balance present in Hempseeds, 1 omega3 for 3-4 OMega6. Getting adequate Omega-3s is possible with chia puddings and walnut taco meats + nut-parm topping.. IN addition to O-3 Advanced-chain fats from Algal DHA, GLA-Omega6 from evening primrose borage or black currant seed, and rare SDA-Omega-3 found in hemp nuts and ahi flower, for all we know, these could be the poster-fats for PTSD recovery, known for regenerating lipid-layers & spurring metabolic efficiency! Our page hopes to inspire commitments (big and small) to a sustainable response to "brainfood" needs. You could be the next innovator to increase awareness of nutritional wellness resources and their accessibility!
