CNN takes on omega-3 deficiency in the American diet and raises awareness of the core mission of NourishLife and their PharmaOmega division
September 22, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsIn a special feature to air six times this weekend, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta will examine how we Americans really are what we eat. According to CNN, “No beef about it, America’s too fat! Dr. Sanjay Gupta investigates our calorie overload – and the science behind it.” All aspects of the American diet will be covered in this story – what we eat, how much, what’s missing, and what the effects are.
In particular, the CNN Special Investigation Unit story will report that we are not getting enough omega-3 fish oil in our diets, which has been shown to lead to the psychiatric disorders that are currently plaguing the American population. Dr. Gupta will be interviewing CDR Joseph R. Hibbeln, MD of the National Institutes of Health and National Institutes of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, who has extensively studied the connection between omega-3 deficiency and mental health issues such as depression and bi-polar disorder.
“We’re excited to see CNN focusing on this important issue: the deficiency of Omega 3’s in today’s diets,” stated Jason Way, VP Customer Experience of NourishLife. “Our mission is to address nutritional deficiencies, so having CNN speak out goes to the core of what we are all about. I’m hopeful this upcoming feature story will raise awareness and motivate people to act to improve their health”.
