    schema:description "There has been an explosion of research on the relationship of Omega-3 fatty acids to human health over the past two decades. This authoritative volume gathers information from the research literature to provide a current, single-volume resource. Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Health brings a nutritionist's perspective to understanding the recent developments in fish oil research. The book goes beyond a summary of the research literature. It discusses the limitations, points of agreement, and areas of conflicting or inconclusive data. Readers will gain a current understanding of issues such as the importance of Omega-3 fatty acids to health; the ways in which they are essential to human growth and development; their contribution to the prevention or amelioration of heart disease; as well as the role Omega-3 fatty acids play in immune/inflammatory responses, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and cancer; and where Omega-3 fatty acids are found in food. With its comprehensive review and discussion of current research, Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Health is an invaluable resource for all researchers working to understand the relationship between nutrition and health. The book will be a unique reference for nutritionists, dietitians, and health educators. Food scientists and technologists will also find important information for their work in developing healthier food products."@en ;
