Fish Oil supplements as a potential cure for global warming ???

Fish Oil supplements as a potential cure for global warming ???

I know it sounds far fetched, and I also know there is a lot of debate on whether global warming exists.

And hey, why does it look like Al Gore wearing a clip on his nose?

Please keep reading and humor me for a second....

Let's for a moment or two assume that global warming does exist.

While our politicians debate about global warming, and different options to reduce emissions that contribute to it, can fish oils be helpful?

First a little bit of info on fish oils. Fish oils contain omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to have many positive effects such as:

--improving good cholesterol (HDL)
--lowering triglycerides
--cancer prevention
--helpful for Bipolar illness
--helpful for Rheumatoid Arthritis
--helpful for Inflammatory Bowel Disease
--less pain and inflammation

I am sure there are other benefits that we have not yet discovered, but will in the future.

I have been taking fish oils for the past 5 years as a supplement to my diet. The brand I use, from Carlson's Labs, has been tested by an independent lab and found free of impurities and toxic chemicals. This is important when you look to a supplement to use. There are other qualities to look for, and please ask at your next visit. If you have trouble finding a fish oil supplement, we do have Carlson's Fish Oils available at our office in both capsule and liquid form.

But let me get back to fish oils as it relates to global warming.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to improve your health and help prevent global warming at the same time?

Well, some researchers may have found a way, at least with cows !!


Here is an excerpt form an online article in Natural News:

(NaturalNews) Adding fish oil to the diets of cows and other ruminants may significantly reduce the amount of methane that the animals emit via belching or flatulence, according to a study conducted by researchers from University College Dublin and presented at a meeting of the Society for General Microbiology.

Their theory is that adding fish oils to cow feed reduces the amount of bacteria that produce methane gas. This methane, when released in the form of belching or flatulence, is one of the leading global warming gases on our planet. More fish oils, less methane in cow flatulence, less global warming. So if we believe this theory, the above list of uses for fish oils now looks like this:

--improving good cholesterol (HDL)
--lowering triglycerides
--cancer prevention
--Bipolar illness
--Rheumatoid Arthritis
--Inflammatory Bowel Disease
--less pain and inflammation

Personally, I feel a better cure for global warming would be to stop all the gases coming out of our Washington, D.C. politicians. They are a truer cause of global warming!!

Send then home to get real jobs, not government jobs that allow them to follow their own special rules, instead of what everyone else follows!

By the way, be sure to ask your senators and representatives if they will accept the same healthcare options that they want you, the American public to take?

When they say no, doesn't that tell you something????

It tells me that something smells in Washington, D.C. !!!!

Please visit and sign the petition to keep the government out of your healthcare. So far, the petition has almost 1 million signatures. If you have already signed, please forward to all your friends and family.

To Good Health!!!
