Vegan Diet and Omega-3s

According to a new report from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) Study, women on a vegan diet have significantly more omega-3 “good fats” in their blood, compared with fish-eaters, meat-eaters, and ovo-lacto vegetarians in spite of zero intake of long-chain omega-3s eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and substantially lower intake of their plant-derived precursor alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

More and more evidence suggests that a well-balanced plant-based diet suffices and exceeds the nutritional requirements for good health. It is encouraging that studies like the one above might lead people to reduce or stop consuming animal products, which in turn would benefit all of God's Creation: our health, animals and the environment.
