A nutritional whodunit that takes readers from Greenland to Africa to Israel, The Queen of Fats gives a fascinating account of how we have become deficient in a nutrient that is essential for good health: the fatty acids known as omega-3s. Writing with intelligence and passion, Susan Allport tells the story of these vital fats, which are abundant in greens and fish, among other foods. She describes how scientists came to understand the role of omega-3s in our diet, why commercial processing has removed them from the food we eat, and what the tremendous consequences have been for our health. In many Western countries, epidemics of inflammatory diseases and metabolic disorders have been traced to omega-3 deficiencies.
Thanks to Ed Felien of Southside Pride Newspaper for stopping in this morning. We chatted and played tracks from their great new comilation CD Southside Soul, Volume 1. They’re having a CD Release Party Saturday night at McMahon’s Pub, 3001 E. Lake Street in Minneapolis. The first 200 people get a FREE CD. If you have the wherewithall, why not flip them a few bucks for the CD? …they’re doing this as a labor of love.
